“Returned Dispensation of Tahirih Qurratu’lAyn” by Starr* Saffa

O QURRATU’L-`AYN !Ye Are The Stars in the Heaven of Understanding

Stretch not Thy hands wide open in the Cause, inasmuch as the people would find themselves in a state of stupor by reason of the Mystery, and I swear by the true Almighty God that there is yet for Thee another turn after this Dispensation.


Poster for the liberating thealogy Dispensation of Harmony of TahirihAnd when the appointed hour hath struck, do Thou, by the leave of God, the All-Wise, reveal from the heights of the Most Lofty and Mystic Mount a faint, an infinitesimal glimmer of Thy impenetrable Mystery, that they who have recognized the radiance of the Sinaic Splendour may faint away and die as they catch a lightning glimpse of the fierce and crimson Light that envelops Thy Revelation. And God is, in very truth, Thine unfailing Protector.

“When the wisdom of the Grandmothers is heard, the world will heal.” –Native American Prophecy

“This is the great Net of Light that will hold the earth at the times of change that are now upon you. The energies of yin and yang are shifting, and you are needed to do this work.”

The Great Council of the Grandmothers

The Grandmothers say, “The time is now and women must lead. It can be no other way.” (They represent the birthing principle as Mothers of the World – one of harmony and balance). They are calling us to come forward and step into our power. Perhaps they are also calling you. All, women and men alike, are welcome to this work.

Selection from Tahirih’s Poems

 

Birth of Universal Guidance

The Breeze of Guidance commanded the breath of life to begin

The Universe has been illuminated, every horizon, every Being

No more sits the sheikh in the seat of hypocrisy

No more is the mosque a business selling holiness

The epiglottis is cut from the throat

Silencing the pretentious sheikhs and their deception

The world is set free from superstitions and vain imaginings

Humankind set free from confusion and misconceptions

With the Power of Equality injustice becomes evaporated

And with intuition and knowledge ignorance destroyed

The carpet of justice is spread everywhere

The seeds of love and friendship scattered throughout

The false verdicts eradicated from all horizons

And concepts of opposition and separation changed to that of unity.

Video: Birth of Universal Guidance



 

Hi Andrew

You do bring interesting truth to the discussion table.I love your comparison of Francisco Goya being seen as the last of the Old Masters and the First of the Modern and as you write:


“I see the Writings of the Bab as the last scriptures of the Abrahamic cycle and the scriptures of Tahira (reason and intuition) as the first scriptures of the new cycle:”


Then you go on to say:


“…the Tahira scriptures of reason and intuition are written in the heart (not in books) so the controversy of the Azali-Baha’i religions is redundant. Neither of these men submitted themselves to the guidance of Tahira (otherwise they would not have attempted to continue the old religion under the guise of Babism or Baha’ism).”


Starr*: Exactly!, Tahirih’s teachings and Her thousands of treaties permeated the world because they are the WORD from God for this Age where Universal Prophethood is the new paradigm. It is therefore, as you say, beating in the hearts.

I was reading on line that Tahira wrote thousands of treaties, many of which were locked away in Baha’i headquarters in Iran; yet believers knew nothing of them till recently. In spite of the attempt to marginalize Her Brilliant Spirit, Her Voice rings out again today.

Here’s to Tahira’s Dream for humanity, entitled “Birth of Universal Guidance” further unfolding into the New Cycle.

Living Love, Starr*


 

Tahirih and The Unfolding by Andrew Carter and Starr* Saffa

Andrew: Clearly, there is some resistance in certain circles to the idea that Tahira and the Bab together constitute the Twin Manifestations.

 

 

Starr*: In Abbas Amanat’s book, Resurrection and Renewal, he affirms that Tahirih was known as the “Point of Divine Knowledge [nuqtih-i-hadrat-i ‘ilm]” before Her association with Babism. Those familiar with the Qur’anic verses “I Was a Hidden Treasure” understand that “Point of Divine Knowledge” is interchangeable with the Essence of Primal Oneness of the Absolute. In other words She was the Essence made manifest.

 

 

In like manner The Bab, with the eighteen Letters of the Living, became known as the Primal Point.

 

 

In both instances of Tahirih and The Bab, also known as “Primal Point”, the “Point” or “Dot” is found within the Primal Oneness of the Absolute of preexistence.

 

 

Therefore, since Tahira and the Bab both appeared as Manifestations in the same place during the same period of time, and their missions became interconnected, they were indeed as Twin Manifestations from Divine Essence.

 

Andrew: Tahira is the only woman to have emerged from the Abrahamic tradition with her own messianic claim to prophethood. As the Bab himself emphasized to Tahira’s critics: “It is not destined for you to realize the truth of her status (i.e., station).” It is only in our own times that we have acquired the awareness to appreciate the true station of Tahira: the Manifestation of God for our Age. Not as a divine figure who masquerades as a human being, but as one whose humanity is so full and complete that God lives in and through her. How appropriate that our post-modern age has its first post-modern messiah in this woman whose life and mission among us can be seen as an evolutionary event that permanently changed the nature of humankind.

To this end I offer an image of a painting I created (now in a private collection) in response to the message of Tahira as embodied in the song “The Unfolding” by Lisa Gerrard.

Starr*: It should be noted that Tahirih closed the Abrahamic Cycle, thereby tanscending patriarchy, and at the same time opened the Gate or marked the dawning of a Universal Cycle of Unity and Balance.
