Translated Thoughts

Today, I want to share with you the passage from a book by Marzieh Gail. That passage can be found on page 19 of Dawn Over Mount Hira. Here is what she wrote about Abdu'l-Baha and his love for the land at the base of Mount Monadnock:


“He loved Dublin; He said in English: 'Good mountains, good green, good meadow, good plain, good view...' He always responded to green trees. Once on the train, going past trees, He turned to a fellow-passenger and said, 'The green -- the green'! The prison-land around 'Akk√° had been very barren. "

If you ever travel to New Hampshire, and if you happen to pass by the town of Dublin, NH, then you will be able to seeMt. Monadnock, the mountain that inspired the thoughts and words of Abdu'l-Baha.
