Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of Abdu’l-Baha revealing the first tablet that would come to be a part of the ‘Tablets of The Divine Plan’. This tablet addressed to the Baha’is of the northeastern states, was the start of a flood of guidance to flow from the pen of the Master to the Baha’is of North America.
On March 26th 2016 The Universal House of Justice released a letter to the Baha’is of the world reminding the community of the Greatest Name of the significance of these tablets to the spiritual progress of the world:
“The Divine Plan, that sublime series o f letters addressed by Abdu’l-Baha to the Baha’is of North America between 26 March 1916 and 8 March 1917, constitutes one of the mighty Charters o f His Father’s Faith. Set forth in those fourteen Tablets, Shoghi Effendi explains, is “the mightiest Plan ever generated through the creative power o f the Most Great Name.” It is “impelled by forces beyond our power to predict or appraise” and “claims as the theatre for its operation territories spread over five continents and the islands of the seven seas.” Within it are held “the seeds of the world’s spiritual revival and ultimate redemption.”
In the Tablets of the Divine Plan Abdu’l-Baha not only provided the broad vision necessary to carry out the responsibilities entrusted by Baha’u’llah to His loved ones, but He also outlined spiritual concepts and practical strategies necessary for success. In His exhortations to teach and to travel to teach; to arise personally or deputize others; to move to all parts o f the world and open countries and territories, each meticulously named; to learn the relevant languages and translate and disseminate the Sacred Texts; to train the teachers o f the Faith and especially youth; to teach the masses and, particularly, indigenous peoples; to be firm in the Covenant and protect the Faith; and to sow seeds and cultivate them in a process of organic growth, we find hallmarks of the entire series of Plans—each a specific stage of the Divine Plan shaped by the Head o f the Faith— that will continue to unfold throughout the Formative Age.”
