In this new short course we will study the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Bahá contained in "Pearls of Bounty."

Published especially for the occasion of the centenary of the passing of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, Pearls of Bounty is a new collection of prayers, Tablets, and talks of the Master translated into English and prepared for publication over the years in the course of the work at the Bahá’í World Centre. This beautiful limited-edition book contains nineteen prayers, most of which were revealed for or about children; twenty-eight Tablets, including the historic Tablets to The Hague; and twelve table talks given by 'Abdu'l-Bahá in 'Akká on a wide range of subjects. Most of the selections included here appear in print for the first time.

Pearls of Bounty can be purchased from the Bahá’í Publishing Trust.
