Storyline

America was alive with the promise of great change in 1912 when Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of the Bahá'í Prophet Bahá'u'lláh, traveled to nine states and one Canadian province. He came with a message of universal peace, the unity of East and West, racial harmony, gender equality, and a visionary view of America's future, captivating all strata of American society. What was it like to meet him? What implications does his journey and the talks he gave have for us today? Luminous Journey celebrates the centenary of his visit and, using contemporary high-definition production techniques and engaging documentary storytelling, offers a reflection upon a journey destined to change the consciousness of a nation and the world.

A1 quality professional production but a revised version will be enhanced by adding one fundamental teaching
6 January 2016 | by pauljdesaillySee all my reviews

Despite my straitened circumstances by Australian norms I ordered this splendid DVD direct from America soon after release; it holds yet an honored position among my possessions

Amidst 150 minutes of a truly professional production, which in no small way draws its inspiration from "The Promulgation of Universal Peace" (see PUP pp.107, 6, 44) "Luminous Journey 'Abdu'l-Bahá in America – 1912" illustrates a dozen times, among other Bahá'í principles, the equality of rights for women and men * while neglecting entirely the unique Baha'i principle of a universal auxiliary language notwithstanding that the same source material and various primary sources repeatedly cite the language principle in general and recommend to boot the study of one particular contender.

* I never decry any of the fundamental principles of the religion founded by Baha'u'llah in 19th century Persia
