Here are the top ten articles for the Baha'i Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. You Are What You Think
Learning and repeated experiences actually alter the physical structure of the brain, creating new neuronal pathways. Religion has built upon this truth for millennia. The Bahá'í Faith takes it a step further into the 21st Century and beyond.
2. True Religion Isn't About Labels
The Bahá'í Faith doesn't discriminate among titles and Names. The definition of true religion taught by Bahá'u'lláh, its Prophet/Founder, is that all religion has the same root.
3. Brilliant Star Magazine - Review
This award winning bi-monthly publication is subtitled, "A Bahá'í Companion for Young Explorers," but I found it applicable across age groups.
4. Consent for Bahá'í Marriage
For Bahá'ís, marriage has greater importance than just the personal happiness of two people, as it forms part of the process of building a better world.
5. Indigenous Religion & the Bahá'í Faith
The core of all religions is seen by Bahá'ís as a unified and progressive whole, provided by a single loving God to humanity. Indigenous people's sense of the interrelationship of all of creation may be the most important contribution to the science and spirituality of the modern world.
6. Is Religion Really All About Chores ?
For Bahá'ís, the purpose of life is to prepare spiritually for eternity, and to spend time and effort on building virtues to make a better world: spiritual chores.
7. Prayers for Protection
Every religion has provided some guidance to help its believers cope not only with the general dangers inherent in living on this planet, but also to deal with what their neighbors, relatives and humanity in general perpetrate. Here are some examples from the Bahá'í Faith.
8. Islam and the Bahá'í Faith
Many Western textbooks on comparative religions place the Bahá'í Faith as a sect of Islam. Similar thinking would make Christianity merely a sect of Judaism.
9. Positive Psychology Isn't New
It is science renewing the basic tenants of core religion: that mankind is much more than just lower nature, and accentuating virtues is more likely to bring happiness than constantly focusing on a negative view of human capacity.
10. Kindness - Science Agrees with Religion
Kindness is a virtue common to many religious and philosophical teaching. Now it has scientific support for not only individual health, but also--Bahá'ís say-- for developing a healthy and peaceful world.
