‘Abdu’l-Bahá at Green Acre

August 21, 1912
'Abdu'l-Baha at Green Acre
Green Acre Eliot, ME

During the visit of a group of Bahá’ís with the Master, a young girl came in and said, ‘I have come to ask for your
assistance. Please tell me what I am fitted to do so that 1 may occupy myself with it.’ The Master asked, ‘Do you have
trust in me?’ She replied, ‘Yes.’ He then said to her, ‘Be a perfect Bahá’í. Associate with Bahá’ís. Study the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. Then you will be assisted in whatever you undertake to do.’ She then said, ‘I am a good Jewess.’ The Master then said: A good Jew can also become a Bahá’í. The truth of the religion of Moses and of Bahá’u’lláh is one. Turn toward Bahá’u’lláh and you will acquire peace and tranquillity, you will hear the melody of the Kingdom, you will stir
people’s souls and you will attain the highest degree of perfection. Be assured of this.
When she heard the Master’s words she was so impressed that she threw herself at His feet and wept.”
