Not Even A Lamp

Published on May 28, 2013.
 In the Persian Bayan, the Bab recorded that during the long nights of His imprisonment in the remote mountain fortress of Mah-ku, He was denied even a lamp. In memory of His suffering, Abdu'l-Baha spoke of a day when the Shrine of the Bab and "Mount Carmel itself, from top to bottom, will be submerged in a sea of Light." The waves of light that illuminate the terrace gardens are symbolic of His triumph and that of His Faith. This definitive documentary presents a comprehensive report on what has happened on Mount Carmel, whose transformation is a physical expression of the growing strength of the world-wide Baha'i community.

 This remarkable story draws upon hundreds of hours of footage taken from the inception of the Mount Carmel Projects to their opening in May 2001 and is an important historical document for present and future generations.
