Address yourselves to the promotion of the well-being and tranquillity of the children of men. Bend your minds and wills to the education of the peoples and kindreds of the earth, that haply the dissensions that divide it may, through the power of the Most Great Name, be blotted out from its face, and all mankind become the upholders of one Order, and the inhabitants of one City.
- Baha'u'llah (Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh’)
- We are being called upon by Baha’u’llah to promote “the well-being and tranquility” of everyone.
- We are being called upon by Baha’u’llah to undertake the task of educating “the peoples and kindreds of the earth” “through the power of the Most Great Name”. --> Should one view the institute courses as a component of this process?
- This global education should eventually result in humanity’s ability to become so united that they would become peaceful residents of “one City”, and “upholders of one Order”.
