Bahá’u’lláh and the New Era
Amongst the Prophets some stand out with special preeminence. Every few centuries a great Divine Revealer--a Krishna, a Zoroaster, a Moses, a Jesus, a Muhammad--appears in the East, like a spiritual Sun, to illumine the darkened minds of men and awaken their dormant souls. Whatever our views as to the relative greatness of these religion-founders we must admit that They have been the most potent factors in the education of mankind.
