Waves Make us as waves of the sea, as flowers of the garden, united, agreed through the bounties of Thy love…make all mankind as stars shining from the same height of glory, as perfect fruits growing upon Thy tree of life ~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Tree Gather all people beneath the shadow of Thy bounty and cause them to unite in harmony, so that they may become as the rays of one sun, as the waves of one ocean, and as the fruit of one tree. ~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Love Is Shining Strive, therefore, to create love in the hearts in order that they may become glowing and radiant. When that love is shining, it will permeate other hearts… ~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

UNITE Unite and bind together the hearts, join in accord all the souls. Oh Lord! Make these faces radiant through the light of Thy oneness. ~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
