Dearest Bahá’í friends, Alláh’u’Abhá!

"The Meaning of Life Course"

14 Videotapes and 218 page Course Support Notes

Our beloved Department of the Secretariat in Haifa on 15 August 2000 wrote and said:

"Mr. Khosro Deihim

"United Kingdom

"Dear Bahá’í Friend,

"Your letter dated 17 May 2000 and the 14 video tapes that compose "The Meaning of Life Course", as well as the 218 pages of supporting notes, were warmly received by the Universal House of Justice.

"The spirit of dedication of the team of the George Townshend Travelling Bahá'í Teacher Training and Teaching Project in undertaking this endeavour is greatly appreciated. We are to extend to the participants of this project the loving commendation of the House of Justice and its assurance of prayers at the Sacred Threshold that the Blessed beauty may continue to assist and sustain their concerted endeavours as they persevere in their service to His Cause."

We, therefore, would now like to inform the friends in more detail about this Study Course entitled "The Meaning of Life" which is available in 14 three hour Video Tapes with 218 page Course Support Notes which were naturally reviewed and approved by our beloved NSA in the U.K. prior to presentation to our beloved UHJ.

The course is specifically aimed at the general public and those who are interested in the deeper aspects of our existence on this planet and our role in life. The course material is based on over 45 years of research and study of the Bahá’í Faith Scriptures and Writings i.e. Revelation of the Báb ‘King of the Messengers’ (1819-1850), Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh ‘the Glory of God’ (1817-1892) and their only authorized expounders: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá ‘the Master’(1844-1921), and Shoghi Effendi ‘the Guardian’ (1897-1957).

We recommend these videos and course notes for presentation to and use of Interfaith Fellowships, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, societies, clubs, Adult Education Departments, Colleges, Universities, High Schools, Public Libraries, National and Regional Television Broadcasting Services, contacts at your firesides, and Bahá’í Deepenings.
