Dear Bahá’í Friends,

We are delighted to advise you of the availability of a new volume of Tablets entitled “The Call of the Divine Beloved: Selected Mystical Works of Bahá’u’lláh”. In a letter dated 6 February, the Department of the Secretariat of the Universal House of Justice shared the following about this publication:

“The volume contains seven Tablets, all revealed before 1863, including the long anticipated retranslation of the Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys. Also included are the poem Rashḥ-i-‘Amá (The Clouds of the Realms Above), revealed in the Síyáh-Chál in Ṭihrán, and four other newly translated Tablets from the period of Bahá’u’lláh’s sojourn in Iraq which elucidate aspects of the mystic journey of the soul towards its divine Beloved.”

The book, published in hardcover, is currently available for purchase through the Bahá’í Distribution Service in the United States at a retail price of US$14.95. It will be available through our own Bahá’í Distribution Service (https://bookstore.bahai.ca/) in the coming weeks. Additional information can be found on the Bahá’í World News Service at https://news.bahai.org/story/1309.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Karen McKye, Secretary
