1933-08-XX to Youth Committee regarding Baha’i Youth

USBN #79 - November 1933 - page 6

"There are two important points which Shoghi Effendi would like you always

to emphasize. In the first place he would strongly urge you to cooperate, heart

and soul, with all the various Assemblies, groups and committees throughout the

Baha'i world, to ask for their assistance and help for the successful discharge of

your duties and obligations, and in this way to try to build up an active and

ready mind among the Baha'i youth throughout the world. In other words, you should

not confine your activities to the national sphere but you should strive to create

under the supervision of your N.S.A. an international body of active young Baha'i

men and women who, conscious of their manifold and sacred responsibilities, will

unanimously arise to spread the Holy Word. The second point which the Guardian

wishes you to stress and to keep always in mind is the necessity for every loyal

and active member of your committee to fully concentrate on the thorough study and

understanding of the spiritual and administrative principles of the Faith, as a

necessary step for active and fruitful teaching. You should first equip yourself

with the necessary amount of knowledge about the Cause, and then, and only then,

try to teach."
