1927-08-25 re Aqdas & Temple interior
USBN #20 - November 1927 - page 7
" The Kitab-i-Aqdas should not be published as the existing translation is
most inadequate. As the Laws in the Aqdas are not all of them designed for
immediate application, our Guardian hopes to make extracts of the more immediate
and essential provisions of it for the guidance of the friends, who should be
urged to adopt and enforce them within the limits imposed by the civil law in
their respective countries.
" Regarding the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar, our Guardian feels that the National
Assembly should take no step whatsoever concerning the interior design or
constructions of the Temple if that step involves, however indirectly, any
financial obligation on the part of the National Fund, as the Temple Fund is
solely for building purposes. As to the character of the design, our Guardian
feels that this is a matter to be decided by the architect and those friends who
have a special knowledge of such matters."
