Aqdas Baha'i Faith

God Devotion and guru-devotion (bhakti) are central principles of the true Baha'i religion and of the Aqdas Baha'i Dispensation. This sect is based on 31 Life giving principles detail as follows:

The Baha'i Book of Laws, withheld for 120 years from the spiritually hungry Baha'is by the materialistic and power-hungry Baha'i sect of Wilmette/Haifa desirous of worldly power over religious truth, reveals the true nature of the religion of Baha'u'llah. With genuine God-given insight into the Most Holy Book, sufficient divine knowledge to power the Aqdas Baha'i Dispensation, The Daystar of Surprise, devotee of the Lord, has now unsealed its wine.

Aqdas Baha'is take seriously the long-suppressed Kitab-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) of Baha'u'llah, and do not consider it an embarrassment. They consider it a crime to have suppressed it and cynically withheld it from religious devotees for a span of 120 years by the world-oriented Wilmette-Haifa sect of Baha'is.

We acknowledge that the Aqdas lacks comprehensive moral guidance for mankind's many dire moral perplexities and views the world through an 1800's Islamic perspective. But we affirm it's value as the central set of clues to true Baha'i living, and as a container of timeless and essential religious knowledge that has been suppressed by the corrupt Wilmette/Haifa group.Our dispensation is a needed addendum to the Kitab-i-Aqdas, and a correction of corruptions and religious heedlessness of the Wilmette/Haifa sect. We both affirm it and bring out new gems of knowledge from it, as Baha'u'llah himself stated was to be done. Here are 31vital and life-giving principles of the Aqdas Baha'i Faith:

1. The world and and all exterior phenomena, including religions, are self-projected for the individual by the power of God within.

2. All exterior religions and scriptures contain flaws. This is because the person who projects them for himself contains flaws and impurities. As he or she purifies himself, the religions purify themselves and develop more sense, profundity, and effectiveness. One must apply his intelligence and testing to religion.

The scriptures and stories of all religions, including the Baha'i Faith, contain both flaws and valuable truth. This does not mean they should be rejected. The man and woman should apply their intelligence, reason, experimentation, and testing to religious ideals and religious techniques, accepting what benefits them. Yet some religious texts are more pure and more flawless than others. The upgrade or positive change to exterior religion can involve both new discoveries in religion generally, or new and deeper understanding of words already known. This 2nd teaching helps the devotee accept the good in the Baha'i Faith while dispensing with what doesn't matter. It also comports completely with the teachings of the religion called non-Dualistic Vedanta found in the Mandukya and other Upanishads, and the Yoga-Vasistha. It also comports with statements of Baha'u'llah.

3. God can be known, but must be first sought. He can be sought by the spiritual practices listed here. We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and Hidden Words but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

4. God must be sought and known within. The essence of religion is God-search and personal God-knowledge, and it is found within.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and Hidden Words but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

5. Religious Practice. We believe that the prime religious activity of the Aqdasi is prayer and chanting, both privately and in groups and that this gives the true religious consciousness, including the cultivation of felt guru-bhakti (devotion to the Lord).

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

6. Reverence and Devotion for the Founder. It is clear from the writings of the Bab and Baha'u'llah that followers are supposed to cultivate reverence for the person of the founders, and cultivate a keen sense of devotion. This reverence benefits the devotee more than it benefits the object of devotion.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect.

7. The Principle of Devotion. The primary Baha'i scriptures from the Kitab-i-Aqdas to the Hidden Words, to the Baha'i prayers are replete with the attitude of devotion, called "bhakti" in the religions of India. The Aqdas Baha'is consider that very attitude of devotion to be a vital and primal religious technique and religious power, and religious gift. The state of reverence and devotion, called bhakti, is mankind's most auspicious and empowered state. We believe that the blissful state of God-devotion is its own reward and the true goal of religion, and that the Religion of Baha, as given originally, was fully adequate to bring disciples to those divine heights here and now. We believe that without the bliss inherent to the true Religion of Baha, Haifa "Baha'is" have nothing of value to offer the world.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and Hidden Words but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

8. Non-worldliness. This world is a "world of dust," or samsara, and it's only value is for getting religious knowledge. The religious focus of an Aqdasi, in accordance with the teachings of the founders, should be on God, who is found within, not on the world and its problems.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa, and that the sect is grotesquely worldly.

9. Affirmation of common ground in religions. This is a basic impulse in the teachings of Baha'u'llah and it is used to inform and develop the Aqdas Baha'i Dispensation. Aqdas Baha'is love the much common ground that can be found between the other religions and the Religion of Baha, and do not shy away from it. They use study of other religions to give them better appreciation and understanding of the Kitab-i-Aqdas and Hidden Words. Haifa-Wilmette "Baha'is," while proclaiming themselves as common-ground seekers, actually fear the other religions and do not wish to study them. This only impoverishes them spiritually. The more they avoid an honest look at the other religions, the more they fear those religions and fail to comprehend their own. Aqdas'is, for example, love study of the Bhagavad-Gita, etc., and how it informs statements in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and allows new secrets to be found their. Haifa-Wilmette "Baha'is" disrespect the other religions by refusing to learn anything about them and misrepresenting them with silly cliches like "That was for that time period."

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but misunderstood and misrepresented by the Heterodox sect. We believe that they fail to search out, find, or understand the common ground in religions beyond a limited polemical agenda.

10. Obedience. The Baha'i "Book of Laws" has has a strong emphasis on obedience as the proper attitude of followers.

We believe this principle is is hidden and unreported by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa for the sake of worldly power and growth of their organization.

11. Chanting and Baha'i mantra repetition. Repetition prayers, verses, and the Baha'i mantra is the central part of the Aqdas Baha'i Dispensation, the very heart of the True Faith.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

12. Value of Penances and Austerities. We believe in the religious and spiritual value in penances or austerities, that is, self-abnegation and enduring of hardships. In the founding Baha'i scriptures this doctrine is supported by the celebration of martyrdom, fasting, and the mythology of the founder's suffering, the rules on sexual conduct and limitation to two wives.

We believe this principle is is hidden and unreported by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa for the sake of worldly power and growth of their organization.

13. Lust destroys man.

14. Lust for bodily diversity and human variety is deluded, and is lust.

15. Patriarchy & Matriarchy. We see that based on the entire writings plus contextual elements the Aqdas Baha'i Dispensation affirms the primacy of the father as authority over certain aspects of family life, and certain aspects of society. The man is the external power; the woman is the internal power. We reject Marxist feminism and the agitation of female desire. We believe that feminism is really the stoking of endless desire and creates disturbed societies and unhappy, unfulfilled women. The female prospers and is happier with a strong husband in authority giving her protection and support; and that her highest and most natural fulfillment is in love, devotion, and nurturance of family. Patriarchy and Matriarchy are natural, work together, and the man and woman have their own complementary realms of power and influence.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and general Baha'i history and assumptions throughout Baha'i scriptures, but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

16. Family Solidarity. We uphold the marital permission law of Baha'u'llah and discourage race-mixing for stronger and more natural families. We consider family harmony and prosperity more important than the well-being of larger groups.

17. Mystery and potentiality of religion. We believe that not all that's true was revealed by Baha'u'llah, and that he himself stated this. We also believe that he encouraged the his followers to unearth and discover continuing gems of knowledge in their religion and religion itself.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

18. Flaws in scriptures and founders. We believe that everything in the external world is transient, dualistic, and flawed and that this includes religions and their scriptures. Thus we believe that the human being must apply his intelligence, testing, and discrimination to identify what's most true in them, be willing to dispense with some things, and endeavor to find more and more within scripture; and more scriptures. We believe that scriptures are self-projected guidance containing truth and error.

19. Race protection. We believe that the founders of the modern day Baha'i Faith never intended to advocate miscegenation or the destruction of the genetic peoples, or destruction of their nations. We believe that acceptance and goodwill toward the various races and ethnic groups of the world includes respect for their continued unique development and separateness. We believe the various ethnic races and peoples should revere, cherish, and protect their cultural and genetic heritage and nationhood. Neither a race-mixing fetish, a lust for varied human bodies, or a neurotic attempt to expiate "White guilt" can stand in for a valid God-religion. These obsessions are in fact antithetical to the world-renouncing, dispassionate, and naturalistic elements of legitimate religion.

We believe that the simple admonitions to non-conflict of peoples has been perverted into a race-mixing and miscegenation cult by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa, and that this would be disgusting to Baha'u'llah and the Bab, and highly likely by 'Abdu'l-Baha despite is matchmaker episode.

20. Natural loyalty. Loyalty to one's natural people and natural communities is most important and comes before loyalty to the 6 billion.

We believe this valuation of natural loyalty and duty is implicit in the Baha'i scriptures and original lifestyle.

21. Sexual morality and abstinence from drugs. We believe in the primacy of moral and sexual self-control for a positive and divinely protected life, for social order, and for religious and spiritual attainment.

22. Unity of religion is spiritually perceived, not externally 'organized'. We believe that the "unity of religion" is a spiritual ideal and condition of perception, one discovered by mystics of all of the profound religions, and that it is not something meant to be postured externally in a monolithic organization. We believe that God intends for the world to have many religions, but that they become informed by the mystical understanding in which individuals can see value and commonality in them. In short: Unity of religion is a spiritual and conceptual understanding, not something to be organized into the form of a massive controlling organization.

We believe this principle is amply demonstrated in the Kitab-i-Aqdas but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

23. Necessity of devotees living in proximity

24. Aqdas Baha'is should be politically and culturally active. To not be culturally and politically active is to not care about your people. When Baha'is state they are not politically active, in any case, it is hypocrisy because their activities have cultural and political effect.

25. Men should live simply and naturally

26. Science should be subject to religious values and not violate run free from wisdom. We believe that the original founders, including the Bab and Baha'u'llah, had negative views of science and technology, corresponding with the "lilies of the field" teaching by Christ. We believe that their original teaching was that science should be subject to the wisdom and guidance of religion (in harmony with it), not that science and religion are the same thing, or equal, or that science should do whatever it likes. We believe that the heterodox Bahai's (Haifa sect) has corrupted this teaching and turned it to an opposite effect for an increase in materialism and world-disturbance. We believe that the unrestrained development of science has damaged the world and damaged the peoples, while never eliminating or changing the problem of duality.

We believe this principle is present in the Baha'i writings and histories but grotesquely twisted, controverted, and misrepresented by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

27. Karma & Reincarnation. We believe believe in reincarnation, the principle of karma and conditioning, the transitoriness of death, return to the world and repetition of dualistic living. The Bab actually taught a reincarnation doctrine he called "Return" but it was excised and covered up by the corrupt Haifa sect. Baha'u'llah described himself as a reincarnation, and 'Abdu'l-Baha spoke of reincarnation as a given to visiting early Baha'is. This also comports with the magnificent religions of Hinduism and Buddhism, logic, common sense, and the occult experiences of religious adepts who can leave the body at will and see the processes of reincarnation of souls. Reincarnation is a doctrine also found present in the Christian scriptures.

28. Benefit of Astrology. We believe in using astrology for its practical benefit, for calmer and more prosperous living, and marriage compatibility.

We believe this principle is affirmed in the Baha'i writings but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

29. Monarchy. Aqdas Baha'is believe in the restoration of natural monarchies, the natural kings and queens of the various peoples. They are against centralization of any one world power.

We believe this principle is affirmed in the Baha'i writings but ignored and rejected by the Heterodox sect of Wilmette and Haifa.

30. Corruption of the Haifa-Wilmette Sect. We believe that the Haifa-Wilmette sect called Baha'is are corrupt, materialistic, in grave error, have hid and suppressed the real teachings of the religion, and have misrepresented the religion to the world.

31. True Successorship. We believe that all successors in the Baha'i Faith, starting with Baha'u'llah, were all invalid and flawed from an "administrative" or legal point-of-view. At the same time we believe that the Baha'i scriptures contain life-protecting wisdom and truth just the same. It has a contribution to make to the world of religions independent of controversies of legal successorship.

We believe that true successorship is expressed by whoever passes on the divine knowledge of Baha'u'llah, the divine knowledge in the Aqdas, and the divine knowledge of God.

We do not believe that the goal or purpose of Baha'u'llah or his religion was to subsume all religions of the world into one, replacing them with something comparatively more shallow. (The Wilmette/Haifa version of the religion.) We believe that the birth and spread of Baha'u'llah's particular form of religion, as a genuine religion, is far more valuable than issues about successorship or misguided, worldly, and materialistic desires for world-control characteristic of the Wilmette/Haifa sect. We believe that our sect is the best and truest sect of all the sects that have emerged from the Baha'i story.
