The Baha’i World Centre has joyfully announced that its online Baha’i Reference Library now includes a feature that allows passages or Tablets from the Baha’i Faith’s Writings, which in the course of the work at the Baha’i World Centre are translated and prepared for publication, to be released online when they become available. In launching this new feature, 109 items are now available; these include selections from the works of Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha translated in English and Persian originals.
The Baha’i Reference Library offers downloadable and searchable Writings from Baha’u’llah, the Bab, Abdu’l-Baha, Shoghi Effendi, letters and publications of the Universal House of Justice and compilations. One of the newly translated works includes a compilation on service titled “Give Me Thy Grace to Serve Thy Loved Ones”. This new compilation offers a selection of Writings from Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi prepared by the International Teaching Centre for the Continental Counsellors and their Auxiliaries in May of this year.
In describing the new features of the online library, the Baha’i World News service announced:
This initiative complements the intensive effort underway to systematically catalog and index the content of the Baha’i sacred texts to facilitate their publication, both in their original languages and in English translation. In its message this year, the House of Justice referred to new volumes of Baha’i writings rendered into English that are set to be published in the coming years.
Accompanying today’s development, the Reference Library has also been updated with substantial enhancements to the site. These include a new design for reading texts, a more powerful search tool, and a download format for electronic publication.
