A Year With the Bahá’ís in India and Burma

Originally published in 1908, this short memoir is the account of the first visit by a Western Bahá’í to South and Southeast Asia, at the behest of Master himself. Sprague has given us a priceless description of several early Bahá’í communities in the region.

From the author’s pilgrimage to ‘Akka, and the instructions given to him by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, through trips to Bombay, Rangoon, and Mandalay, then to Delhi and Lahore, we see a broad spectrum of Bahá’í community and life at the turn of the twentieth century. Sprague paints a clear picture of the transforming power of the Faith’s message of unity in diversity that could bring together Muslims, Zoroastrians, Buddhists, and Hindus as a single-family.

A must read for lovers of memoir and stories of overcoming adversity.
