The DUES Institute – Beginnings
The Divine Unity Exploration and Studies Institute was initiated in the early nineties in response to encouragement from the Universal House of Justice to utilize the institute process, and to develop new materials to make possible more fruitful sharing of the Baha’i message and to promote greater harmony and unity.
The DUES Institute develops presentations and publications to raise awareness of the implications of patterns and inner meanings hidden in the Bahá’í Writings and other Holy Scriptures, in order to assist others in their search for relevant truths that have direct bearing on their personal lives, the life of their communities and the world at large. The more we advance in the path of sacrifice, understanding and wisdom, the more effectively we can serve the Cause of God.
We hope to encourage the youthful in spirit to leave the planes of limitation, step onto the plain of sacrifice, take flight in the realm of the spirit, become ignited with the power of faith, be initiated into the hidden mysteries of divine unity, and, with God’s aid, gain a penetrating vision to burn away veils of illusion with the “fire of the love of the beauty” of the Best Beloved, that they may thereby become divine physicians healing the ills of suffering humanity. We believe that this is the path for the sincere soul in response to the divine call of service, to find their part to play and ultimately their personal destiny in God’s Cause.
