In response to the direction set by the Universal House of Justice, Bahá’ís are engaging in the work of training institutes, which involves the study of a series of courses that have been designed not only to systematically deepen the knowledge of large numbers of individuals in the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith, but also to mobilize them to become active agents of change by providing them with the appropriate skills to participate in community building. A natural result of this is an ever-increasing number of human resources, which, in turn, leads to a culture of growth that, with time and loving guidance from the Institutions of the Faith, will help to advance the material and spiritual progress of society.
Palabra Publications is helping to make the materials of the Ruhi Institute available in North America and the Caribbean, as required, in English, Spanish, French, Persian and Arabic.
In addition to the books that can be ordered here, copies of items currently in the process of development by the Ruhi Institute, or in elaboration for use among junior youth groups, can also be obtained from Palabra Publications, at cost, as an assistance to training institutes in the United States. Such items are made available on a limited scale as part of the process of action, reflection and consultation through which they emerge.
