“That one indeed is a man who, today, dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race” is one of the most important teachings of Baha’u’llah. Baha’is and their communities around the world try to put this quote into action. A new film, Dawn of the Light, commissioned by the Baha’i international community for the Bicentenary of the Birth of the Bab, celebrated in October 2019 (available here: https://www.bahai.org/dawn-of-the-light/), shows diverse communities in action. Dawn of the Light portrays several individuals from different continents as they relate their own personal search after truth and meaning. They share their discovery that God has sent two Divine Manifestations—the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh—Whose teachings are revolutionizing human thought and behaviour, changing darkness into light. The film shows glimpses of how this same discovery is inspiring the efforts of many across the globe to serve humanity and to contribute to building a new pattern of life.
