Baha’i Faith Symbols with Atma (Soul) Yoga by Ricardo B Serrano
The nine-pointed star “A simple nine-pointed star is generally used
by Bahá’ís as a symbol of their Faith. The number nine has significance in the Bahá’í
Revelation. Nine years after the announcement of the Báb
in Shiraz, Bahá’u’lláh received the intimation of His mission in the dungeon in Teheran. Nine, as the highest single-digit number,
symbolizes completeness. Since the Bahá’í Faith claims to be the
fulfillment of the expectations of all prior religions, this symbol, as used for example
in nine-sided Bahá’í temples, reflects that sense of fulfillment and completeness.” The Greatest Name
“Yá Bahá’u’l-Abhá” “. . . the symbol of the Greatest Name represents
an invocation which can be translated either as ‘O Glory of Glories’ or ‘O Glory of the
All-Glorious.’ The word glory used in this connection is
a translation of the Arabic term Bahá, the name of Bahá’u’lláh.” Purpose and Meaning of the
Bahá’í Ringstone Symbol The purpose of the symbol that appears on
Bahá’í ringstones and other Bahá’í identity jewelry is a visual reminder of God’s purpose
for man, and for Bahá’ís in particular. Bahá’í identity jewelry often is a conversation
starter about the Faith and may be considered a teaching and proclamation aid. What it means
The three levels of the design represent: upper level – the world of God, the Creator, middle level – the world of His Manifestations, lower level – and the world of man. The vertical line joins the three horizantal
bars together in the same way that the Divine Messengers of God form the link between the
world of God and the world of man. The twin five-pointed stars on either side
of the design represent the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, the twin Messengers of God for this age. The ringstone symbol was designed by `Abdu’l-Bahá Atma (Soul) Yoga
We are connected to God through the Holy Spirit and Manifestation of God (Christ, Krishna,
Buddha, Baha’u’llah, etc.) Excerpted from page 3, Oneness with Shiva
