Dear Friends,


I am working on a research project concerning obligatory prayer and all of its intricate and little known details. One answer I have not been able to find in the authorized English translations of the Sacred writings, or in the writings of the Guardian or The Supreme Body, can be summed up in this question:

What if you are in an unknown area, you do not know your location or the direction to of the Point of Adoration, and the time for obligatory prayer arrives?

Please do not answer without an explicit reference to an appropriate and authoritative text. If this is mentioned in an untranslated work please give a transliteration of the text where the answer can be found.
