Unite and Bind Together the Hearts Mandala

Artwork by Lindsay Montgomery, Newark, Ohio
This piece was inspired by the below quote, that is also the script going around the mandala, from a prayer revealed by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. My intention was to make a visual that encompassed all the Baha’i continental houses of worship as a unified whole. The newest Chilean temple is in the center followed by the New Delhi temple, then the Samoan temple, the Panamanian temple, the German temple, the Australian temple, the Ugandan temple, the Chicago temple, and the temple that once existed in Turkey. ~ Lindsay Montgomery, Newark, Ohio

“O Lord! Unite and bind together the hearts, join in accord all the souls, and exhilarate the spirits through the signs of Thy sanctity and oneness. O Lord! Make these faces radiant through the light of Thy oneness. Strengthen the loins of Thy servants in the service of Thy kingdom.”
