He is God!
Please give my respectful greetings to the Theosophical Society, and tell them ‘You are in truth promoting the oneness of humanity, for you are free of ignorant prejudices and earnestly desire that all people should be one. Today, whoever promotes the oneness of humanity is acceptable in the eyes of God. All the divinely-inspired prophets strove for this goal, and served humanity. The oneness of humanity is the foundation of the divine teachings. His holiness Moses promoted the oneness of humanity, his holiness Christ established the oneness of humanity, his holiness Muhammad declared the oneness of humanity. The Torah and the gospels and the Qur’an laid the foundations for the oneness of humanity. The Law of God is but one thing, and the Religion of God is one thing: it is loving kindness. His holiness Baha’u’llah has renewed the teachings of the Prophets and proclaimed the foundation of the religion of God, that fellowship may reign between the diverse communities, and the diverging religions may be harmonised. The teachings of Baha’u’llah have had such an effect in the nerves and arteries of humanity that unity has been established between the divergent peoples and kindreds. Since you are working for an admirable cause, I will pray for you and ask God to assist you.’
