It was June 1st, 1909, when our Beloved descended from his Paradisiacal World to our evil-laden Earth in order to enlighten humanity and to direct mankind towards justice, freedom, love, and righteousness. To us, it was a glorious day and God’s gift to humanity, however, to our Beloved, it meant years and years of agony, pain, and suffering by living a human life that is way too foreign from the life he was living in his Paradisiacal abode, nonetheless, he had a Mission to deliver and, as a result, he had to suffer.
His descent was anticipated and prophesied in the Holy Bible and the Holy Qur’an. His message is that of love, compassion, and Spiritual enlightenment—characteristic of the Greatest Power in the universe before God, namely, that of Christ. But his message is also a warning of the impending destruction of the earth to fulfill certain prophecies, such as this one: “The Lord is going to devastate the earth and leave it desolate. He will twist the earth’s surface and scatter its people. Everyone will meet the same fate—the priests and the people, slaves and masters, buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers, rich and poor. The earth will lie shattered and ruined. The Lord has spoken and it will be done. The earth dries up and withers; the whole world grows weak; both earth and sky decay. The people have defiled the earth by breaking God’s laws and by violating the covenant he made to last for ever. So God has pronounced a curse on the earth. Its people are paying for what they have done.” (Isaiah 24:1-6)
On June 1st of every year, Daheshists around the world celebrate his birth and honor his memory. However, any individual that considers himself/herself a Daheshist, carry along with this label the great responsibility of learning and sharing this Spiritual “Truth” with fellow human beings. Spiritual awareness imposes such responsibilities on our shoulders, and it would be a shame if we allow this opportunity to attain Spiritual elevation pass us by.
