The Hands of the Cause of God - Volume One

Documentary in style, this video recounts the lives of the Hands of the Cause of God within the historical context of the Baha'i Faith. This volume covers the where and why of these heroic souls' first appointment by Baha'u'llah during the latter part of His Ministry, to whom he referred as "the chosen ones", the "detached souls" and the "pure in spirit". The story of the sacrifice and daring of the four Hands appointed by Him is followed by the accounts of those special individuals referred to as Hands by His son 'Abdu'l-Baha on their passing. During the Ministry of Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian also elevated a number of outstanding individuals to the rand of Hand of the Cause, posthumously. The story of these heroes and heroines of the Baha'i Faith who "diffused the divine fragrances" and "promoted learning" is told.
