Meherangiz Munsiff’s many achievements were grounded in her unwavering and profound love for Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith. The few days of her pilgrimage in 1953 defined the course of her life and initially led to her arising alone to pioneer to Madagascar and the French Cameroons, leaving her family behind in London and rewarding her with the station of Knight of Bahá’u’lláh. This experience, where she was utterly reliant for support on prayer and meditation, her ‘lifeline’, led to later travels that would ultimately cover more than 147 countries: ‘I decided to create a course which had as its objective a path to encourage anyone who cared to listen that we as human beings are exclusively able to call on the power of prayer with a view to protecting and serving mankind.’ Her manuscript on prayer and meditation comprises the second part of this book, and demonstrates her personal style which in its directness and sincerity distinguishes her perspective – sometimes challenging, always encouraging and inspirational.
