KIA TĀKINA IA RĀ, I TE ATA, I TE RĀNUI, I TE AHIAHI PŌ

Te tangata e hiahia ana ki te karakia, me horoi e ia ōna ringa, ā, i a ia e horoi ana ka mea ai a ia:

Whakakahangia tōku ringa e tōku Atua, ka hopu pai ai ia i Tāu Pukapuka ki te pūkaha e kore e whaimana ngā manotini o te ao ki runga i a ia. Manaakitia mai rā ia, kia kaua ia e raweke i ngā rawa nā iwi kē. Tūturu ko Koe te Kaharawa, te Tino Pūkaha.

Nā, i a ia e horoi ana i tōna mata, ka kiia ai:

Kua tahuri ahau i tōku kanohi ki a Koe, e tōku Ariki! Whakamāramatia mai rā ia ki te rama o Tō mata. Tiakina mai rā ia, heoti rā, kia kaua e tahuri ki tētahi kē atu i a Koe.

Kātahi ia ka tukua kia tū, ka huri te kanohi ki Qiblih (te Pokapū o te Arohanui, i.e. Bahjí, Akká), ā ka kiia ai:

Ko tā Te Atua he whakaatu kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Ia. Nāna ngā kīngitanga o te Whakakitenga, o te orokohanganga. Nāna, tūturu, a Ia, te Matāpuna o te Whakakitenga, i whakatinana; Nāna te kōrerorerotanga ki runga o Hinai, Nāna te Pae O Runga Rawa i whakangihatia ai, ā, kua kōrerotia e te Rākau-Rote kāhore he huarahi o tua atu, a Nāna hoki te karanga i pāohongia ai ki te katoa kei te rangi me te whenua: “Inā, kua tae mai te Pouwhiwhi-Katoa. Nā Te Atua te whenua me te rangi, te korōria me te tōminiona, te Ariki o ngā iwi katoa, me te Mana o runga o te Torōna o runga rawa, o te mata o te whenua hoki!”

Kātahi ia ka tukua kia tuohu, ko ōna ringa ka tau ki ōna turi, me te kī :

e whaikorōria ana ki a Koe, kei runga noa atu o āku whakamihi, me te whakamihi o ētahi kei tōku taha, kei runga noa atu o āku whakaahua me te whakaahua o te katoa kei te rangi me te whenua!

Ā, i a ia e tū ana me te tūwhera o ana ringa, ngā kapu e tohu ana ki runga ki te mata, kātahi ia ka mea:

Kaua rā e kawea kia pāpōuri, e tōku Atua, te tangata, me ōna matimati pīnono, kua piri ki te remu o Tōu tohu atawhai, me Tōu māhaki, e ko Koe, te Tino Poutohu i te Aroha o te hunga Tohu Tino Atawhai!

Kātahi ia ka tukua kia noho me te kī:

Tēnei ahau te kaiwhakaatu o Tōu kotahitanga pū, ā, ko Koe Te Atua, kāhore hoki tētahi Atua i tua atu i a Koe. Tūturu, Nāu Tō Kaupapa i whakaatu mai, Tō Kawenata i tutuki, te kūwaha ki Tō atawhai i whakatūwheratia ai ki te katoa kei te rangi me te whenua. Kia whakapaingia, kia tau te rangimārie, kia whakamihia, kia korōriatia ngā tau o Tōu ate, rātou hei aha koa ngā piki me ngā heke o te ao kāhore kau i tahuri atu i a Koe, kua whakapau i ō rātou kaha katoa, me te whakapono ka riro i a rātou ko tērā Nāu. Tūturu ko Koe, te PoumurungaHara i Ngā Wā Katoa, te Whairawanui-Katoa.

(Ki te hiahia tētahi ki te whakatātaki kē atu o te whiti roa ko ēnei kupu: “ Ko Te Atua pū e whakaatu ana kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Ia, te Pouāwhina i te Mōrearea, te Matua-Kore,” ka ea. He pērā rā anō, ka ea hoki ki tāna kōwhiri, i a ia e noho ana, ki te whakatātaki i ēnei kupu: “Tēnei ahau te kaiwhakaatu i Tō kotahitanga pū, ā ko Koe Te Atua, kāhore hoki tētahi Atua i tua atu i a Koe.”)

KIA KOTAHI TE TĀKINA I ROTO I TE RUA TEKAU

MĀ WHĀ HAORA, I TE RĀNUI

TNāu ahau i hanga kia mōhio ahau ki a Koe, kia koropiko hoki ki a Koe. Ko tāku i tēnei wā he whakaatu i tōku kahakore, ināhoki ki Tōu kaha rawa, ki tōku rawakore, ā, ki Tōu whairawa.

Kāore kau he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, te Pouāwhina i ngā Wā Mōrearea, te Matua-kore.

KIA KOTAHI TE TĀKINA IA RUA TEKAU MĀ WHĀ HĀORA

Ko ia e hiahia ana ki te taki i tēnei karakia, tukua ia kia tū, ka tahuri ki Te Atua, ā, i a ia e tū ana, tukua ia kia titiro whakatematau, whakatemaui, anō nei ia e tatari ana ki te whai tohu a tōna Ariki, te Tohu Atawhai Rawa, te Mākoha. Kātahi ia ka mea:

E ko Koe te Hiahia o te ao, te Tau o te Ate o ngā neihana! Tēnā Koe te kite nei i ahau e tahuri nei ki a Koe, kua wetekina katoa ngā here ki tētahi i tua atu i a Koe, kua piri pū ki Tō aho, mai i reira te katoa o te orokohanganga i oreore ai. Ko ahau Tō pononga e tōku Ariki, me te tama a Tō pononga. Tēnei rā ahau te whakatika nei i tāku tū kia mahi i Tāu e hiahia ai, i Tāu e pīrangi ai, kia kaua tētahi mea i tua atu o Tāu e pai ai. Ko tāku inoi ki a Koe, mā te Moananui o Tōu atawhai me te Rā o Tōu atawhai, whakamahia ki To pononga ko Tāu e hiahia ai, ko Tāu e pai ai. Mā Tōu kaha, kei runga noa atu o te whākīnga, o te whakamihinga! Ko te mea e whakaaturia ana e Koe ko ia te hiahia o tōku ngākau, me te tau o tōku wairua ora. e Te Atua, tōku Atua! Kaua e titiro ki aku tūmanako me āku mahi, e kāo, tirohia kē ki Tāu e hiahia ai, ki Tāu e hīpoki nā i ngā rangi me te whenua. Mā Tōu Ingoa Nui Whakaharahara, e Koe Te Ariki o ngā neihana katoa! Ko tāku e hiahia noa iho nei ko Tāu i hiahia ai, ko tāku e aroha noa nei ahau ko Tāu e aroha ai. Tukua ia kia tūturi me te tūohu o tōna pane ki te whenua ka tukua ia kia kī:

Kua whaikorōria Koe ki runga noa atu i te whakaahua o tētahi i tua atu i a Koe, i te māramatanga hoki o tētahi mea i tua atu anō i a Koe.

Tukua ia kia tū me te kī:

Meinga tāku inoi, e tōku Ariki, ki tētahi puna waiora e ora ai ahau ki te mauroa o Tōu tino rangatiratanga, ā, e kōrero ai ahau Mōu ki tēnā, ki tēnā o Oū ao.

Tukua anō ia kia hiki i ōna ringa ki te inoi me te kī:

e ko Koe, ko te tauwehenga i a Koe te whakarewa i te ngākau me te wairua ora, ā, nā te ahi o Tōu aroha i muramura ai te ao katoa. Kei te kaha tāku inoi ki a Koe mā Tōu Ingoa nāna Koe te katoa o te orokohanganga i whakarata ai, kia kaua e tātāwhi atu i ahau tērā kei a Koe, e Koe te rangatira o ngā iwi katoa! e kitea ana e Koe, e tōku Ariki, tēnei tauhou e tere nei ki tōna kāinga whaikorōria rawa kei raro o te maru o Tōu rangatiratanga, kei roto o ngā tarawāhi o Tōu Aroha; ā, e kimi ana tēnei tangata hara i te moananui o Tōu murunga hara; me tēnei mōkai māhaki te marae o Tōu korōria; me tēnei rawakore te rāwhiti o Tōu whairawa. Nōu te mana o te kupu whakatau i Tāu e hiahia ai. Ko tāku whakaatu, tēnei ahau te kaiwhakaatu kia whakamihia Koe me Āu mahi, kia āta whakarongohia ko Āu e tau ai, kia noho māmā noa iho ki Āu i mea ai.

Tukua ia kia hiki i ōna ringa, kia toru ngā whakatātakinga o te Ingoa Tino Nui Rawa Atu.* Kātahi ia ka tukua kia tūohu ki mua i Te Atua - kia whakapaingia, kia whaikorōria a Ia - ko ōna ringa ki ōna turi - ā ka mea:

Kite mai ai Koe, e tōku Atua, kua oreore tōku wairua ki aku ringa me aku wae, ki te nui o te hiahia ki te koropiko i a Koe, me te kōingo kia maumaharatia Koe, kia whakakorōriatia ko Koe; ko ia e whakaatu nei i tērā ināhoki nā Te Arero o Tōu Ture i whakatātaki ki te kīngitanga o Tō kupu me te rangi o To mātauranga. Ko tāku e aroha nei au, ki tēnei āhua, e tōku Ariki, ki te inoi ki a Koe, ko te katoa kei a Koe, ka whakaahuatia ai taku rawakore rawa atu, ka whakanuia ai Tō tōnui, me Ō taonga, ka whākina ai taku kahakore, ka whakatinanatia ai Tōhou nā kaha, Tōhou nā mana nui.

Kātahi ia ka tukua kia tū, kia rua ngā hikinga o ōna ringa ki te inoi, ā, ka mea:

Kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, te Kaharawa, te Whairawanui-Katoa. Kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a koe, te Pouwhakarite, mai i te tīmatanga tae noa ki te mutunga. e Te Atua, Tōku Atua! Nā Tāu murunga hara ahau i whaimana ai, nā Tōu aroha ahau i whaikaha ai, nā Tāu karanga ahau i whakaara, ā, nā Tōu atawhai ahau i aratakina ai ki a Koe. Waihoki, ko wai rā ahau mō te tū ki te kēti o te taonenui o Tōu pātata mai, mō te tahuri rānei i tōku kanohi ki ngā rāiti e tīramarama mai rā i te rangi o Tō hiahia? Ko Koe kei te kite, e tōku Ariki, ko tēnei kararehe pōhara e pātōtō nei ki te kūwaha o Tōu atawhai, ko tēnei wairua ora rangitahi e kimi nei i te awa o te oranga mutungakore mai i ngā ringaringa o Tōu whairawa. Nāu te kupu whakahau o ngā wā katoa, e ko Koe te Ariki o ngā ingoa katoa, heoi anō tāku te koropiko ki Tāu e hiahia ai, e Te Kaihanga o ngā rangi!

Tukua kia toru ngā hikinga o ōna ringa, me te kī:

He nui atu Te Atua i ngā mea nui katoa!

Tukua ia kia tūturi ā, kia koropiko i tana rae ki te whenua, ka kiia ai:

He tiketike rawa Koe mō te whakamihi a ērā e tata nei ki a Koe kia piki ai ki te rangi o Tō pātata mai, mō ngā manu o ngā ngākau o ērā e kaingākaunui nei ki a Koe kia taea ai te kūwaha o Tō kēti. Tēnei ahau e whakaatu nei he tapu kē atu Koe i runga noa atu o ngā tini āhuatanga, i runga kē atu o ngā ingoa. Kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, te Whaikorōria Rawa, te Korōria-Katoa.

Kātahi ia ka tukua kia noho me te kī:

Tēnei ahau e whakaatu nei i te whakaaturanga o ngā hanganga katoa me te Huinga Kahurangi o runga rawa, me ngā kainoho o te Wāhi Tau o runga rawa, ki tua atu hoki, ko te Arero o te Korōria tonu mai i te Pae korōria-katoa, i noho mai ko Koe Te Atua, kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, ā, ko Ia kua whakatinanatia ko Ia te Pōrehu Ngaro, te Tohu i Kōingotia, nāna hoki i tūhonotia ai, i tuituia ai ngā kupu, te ‘Ko’, me te ‘Ia’ (Ko-ia). Tēnei ahau e whakaatu nei ko Ia Nōna te Ingoa i tuhia e te Pene o te Runga Rawa, ko Ia i kōrerotia ki ngā Pukapuka a Te Atua, te Ariki o te Torōna o runga me te whenua o raro.

Kātahi ia ka tukua ka tū hāngai me te kī:

E Te Ariki o ngā mea katoa, Nāu te katoa e kitea ana, kāore hoki i te kitea! e mārama ana ki a Koe aku roimata, ko aku mapu kau, ā, e rongongia ana aku auē, me āku hakū, me te tangi o tōku ngākau. Mā Tō kaha! Nā aku hara i haukoti taku whakatata ki a Koe; nāna hoki ahau i matara rawa ai i te marae o Tō tapu. Nā Tōu aroha, e tōku Ariki, ahau i whairawa ai, nā te wehenga atu i a Koe ahau i turakina ai, nā te matara rawa i a Koe ahau i kaingia ai. e inoi nei ahau ki a Koe mā Ō tapuwae ki tēnei kōraha, ā, mā aua kupu, “Tēnei ahau. Tēnei ahau.” nā Ō Kōwhiringa i whākī ki tēnei nui whakahirahira, ā, nā ngā hā o Tō Whakakitenga, me ngā hau angiangi o te Awatea o Tō Whatinanatanga, he whakatakotoranga e taea ai e ahau te titiro ki Tō ātaahua, me te mātakitaki i ngā tini āhuatanga kei roto kei Tō Pukapuka.

Tukua kia toru āna whakatātakitanga i te Ingoa Tino Nui Rawa Atu, ā, kia tūohu anō, ko ana ringa kia tau ki ana turi me te kī:

Korōria ki a Koe e tōku Atua, Nāu ahau i āwhina kia mau mahara ki a Koe, ki te tuku whakamoemiti ki a Koe, Nāu ahau i whakamōhio ki a Ia, ki te Mātāpuna o Ō tohu, Nāu anō ahau i akiaki kia koropiko ahau ki Tō Arikitanga, kia whakaiti ahau i ahau anō ki mua ki Tō Arikitanga, ki te whāki hoki i tērā kua whakapuakina e Te Arero o Tō korōria.

Tukua ia kia tū me te kī:

E Te Atua, tōku Atua! Kua koropikona tōku tuarā i te toimaha o aku hara, nā taku kore e whakarongo ahau i tuakina ai. Kia āta kimi whakaaro ahau mō aku mahi hara, me Tōu tuku aroha, ka rewa tōku ngākau i roto i ahau, ka pāwera tōku toto i roto i aku iaia. Nā Tō Ātaahua, e Koe e te Kōingo o te ao! Ka mumura ahau ki te hiki i tōku kanohi ki a Koe, me te toro i aku ringaringa e manako ana ki te rangi o Tōu tōnui. e kitea ana e Koe e tōku Atua, te haukoti o aku roimata i te maumahara ki a Koe, i te whakaatu hoki i Ōu horomata, e Koe e te Ariki o te Torōna o runga me te whenua o raro! Ko tāku inoi ki a Koe mā ngā tohu o Tōu Kīngitanga me ngā pōrehu o Tōu Tōminiona kia mahia e Koe ko ngā tau o Tōu ate e ai ki tā Tōu whairawa, e Te Ariki o ngā mea katoa, e haratau hoki ki Tō atawhai e te Kīngi o ngā mea e kitea ana me ngā mea kāore i te kitea!

Nā, ka tukua ai kia toru ana whākīnga i te Ingoa Tino Nui Rawa Atu, ka tūturi ko tōna rae ki te papa, ka mea ai:

Kia whakamoemititia Koe, e tō mātou Atua, kua tukuna iho ki a mātou tērā e kukume nei i a mātou kia tata ki a Koe, tērā rā ano e whakaratohia ki a mātou ngā painga katoa kua tukuna iho e Koe ki Āu Pukapuka me Āu Karaipiture. Manaakitia mai mātou, ko tā mātou inoi ki a Koe, e tōku Ariki, mai i ngā tini o pōauau, o pōhēhē. Ko Koe rā, tūturu, te Mananui, Te Mōhio-Katoa.

Tukua ia ki te hiki i tōna pane, kia noho me te kī:

Tēnei ahau te whakaatu nei e tōku Atua, ki tērā nā Ō Kōwhiringa i whakaatu, me te tautoko i tērā kua tautokona e ngā kainoho o te Wāhi Tau o runga rawa, me ērā e āmio haere nei i Tō Torōna nui. Ko ngā kīngitanga o te whenua o te rangi Nāu, e Te Ariki o ngā ao!

MŌ TE HUNGA MATE

(Ko te Karakia mō te Hunga Mate anahe te karakia me whakatātaki ki te whakaminenga; me whakatātaki e tētahi kaiwhakapono, ka tū, ka hū katoa te whakaminenga. Nā Bahá’u’lláh te whakamārama he ritenga nō tēnei inoi kia tekau mā rima tau neke atu te tūpāpaku, kia karakiatia mō mua noa o te tukunga kia tāpuketia, kāore hoki he tahuri ki Qiblih i a ia e karakiatia ana. Ka kotahi te whakatātakitanga “Alláh-u-Abhá”; kātahi te tuatahi o ngā whiti e ono ka tekau mā iwa ngā karakiatanga. Kātahi ka kiia anō, “Alláhu-Abhá”, ko te whiti tuarua ka whai muri mai, ka tekau mā iwa ngā whakatātakinga, huri noa.)

E tōku Atua! Ko Tō pononga tēnei, me te tamaiti a Tō pononga i whakapono ki a Koe me Ō tohu, kua tahuri rā tōna kanohi ki a Koe, e wātea ana i te katoa, heoti rā Mōu. Ko Koe, tūturu o ngā mea tohu aroha, te tino o rātou ngā mea Tō atawhai rawa.

Ārahina rā ia, e Koe te poumuru i ngā hara a te tangata, te pouhuna i ā rātou hapa, e ai ki te rangi o tō whairawa, me te moana o tō atawhai. Tukua ia kia uru ki roto ki ngā takiwā o Tō tohu aroha nō mua noa atu o te tūāpapa o te whenua, o te rangi. Kāhore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, Te PoumurungaHara i ngā Wā Katoa, te Marere Rawa.

Tukua ia ki te mea pēnei (arā, mō ia o ngā whiti e ono o raro ake nei, kia kotahi te tātaki i te mihi “Alláh-u-Abhá,” kātahi ka tekau mā iwa tātakinga o ia whiti):

Alláh-u-Abhá (x1)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e koropiko ana ki Te Atua. (x19)

Alláh-u-Abhá (x1)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e tūohu ana ki mua i Te Atua (x19)

Alláh-u-Abhá (x1)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e piripono ana ki Te Atua (x19)

Alláh-u-Abhá (x1)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e whakamoemiti ana ki Te Atua (x19)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e whakawhetai ana ki Te Atua (x19)

Alláh-u-Abhá (x1)

Ko tātou katoa, tūturu, e hūmārire ana i roto i Te Atua (x19)

Tēnei ahau te whakaatu i Tō kaha rawa me Tō āhei nui, ki Tōu tino rangatiratanga me Tō tohu pourauaroha- ngākau māhaki, ki Tō atawhai, ki Tō mana, ki te kotahitanga o Tō Mauri, o Tōu Iho. Tō tapu, korōria hoki o runga o te ao tūroa, o ō ngā mea katoa hoki o reira.

E tōku Atua! e kite nei Koe i ahau kua wehea atu i te katoa tua atu i a Koe, e kaha nei ki te piri ki a Koe, e tahuri nei ki te moananui o Tō whairawa, ki te rangi o Tō popore, ki te Rā o Tō atawhai.

E Te Ariki! Tēnei ahau te whakaatu nei kei Tō pononga Tō Whirinakitanga, ko ia hoki tērā te Wairua i whakaora ai Koe i te ao.

Ko tāku tono ki a Koe mā te mīharo o te Ao o Tō Whakakitenga, kia arohaina te whakaae mai i a ia ko tāna i taea ai e ia i Ō rā. Tukua koa kia tau rā te korōria ki runga i a ia o Tāu i pai ai, kia kākahuria ia ki Tō whakaaetanga

Kei tōku Ariki! Tēnei ahau me ngā orokohanganga katoa e whakaatu nei i Tō āhei nui, ā ka inoi nei ahau kia kaua Koe e tahuri atu i a Koe ko tēnei wairua kua piki ake ki a Koe, ki Tō kāinga i te rangi, Tōu Wāhi whaikorōria, me Ō piringa o te piritata, e Koe, Te Ariki o ngā iwi katoa!

Tēnā tukua, e tōku Atua, kia hui Tō pononga me Ō kōwhiringa, Ō hato, Ō Karere kei ngā wāhi o te rangi tē taea ai e te pene te tuhi, te arero rā anō hoki te whākī.

Kei tōku Ariki, ko te pōhara tūturu kua tere atu ki te Kīngitanga o Tō whairawa, te tauhou ki tana whare kei tō wā kāinga, ko ia kua kino te hiainu ki te awa i te rangi o Tō Tōnui. Kia kaua ia e hapa, e Te Ariki, mai i tōna wāhi o te hākari o Tō atawhai, mai hoki i te popore o Tō whairawa. Tūturu ko Koe te Kaharawa, te Tohu Tūpore, te Whairawanui-Katoa.

Kei tōku Atua, kua whakahokia Tō Whakawhirinaki ki a Koe. He tau rā ki Tō atawhai me tō whairawa kua karapotitia Ō tōminiona i te rangi i te whenua, hei oati ki Tōu nā kātahi anō ka pōwhiritia i Ō tākoha me Ō tukunga iho, me ngā hua mai i te rākau o Tōu tohu aroha! Pūkaha ana Koe ki te mahi ki Tāu e pai ai, kāore he Atua tua atu i a Koe, te Tohu Tūpore, Te Whairawa Nunui, te Mākoha, te Poutuku, Te Poumuru Hara, te Tongarerewa, te Mōhio-Katoa.

Tēnei ahau e whakaatu nei, Kei tōku Ariki, kua ākina e Kōe kia manaakitia e te tangata tana manuwhiri, ā i a ia hoki kua piki ake ki a Koe tūturu kua tae ake ki Tō Aroaro. Meinga ko tāna ki Tāu e pai ai, ki Tō atawhai, tōnui hoki! Mā Tō korōria, tūturu ahau te mātau e kore rawa Koe e whakapupuru i a Koe mai i Tāu i akiaki ai i Ō pononga, e kore rawa rā ano Koe e tupe i a ia kua piri ki te taura o Tō tōnui kua piki ake hoki ki te pae o te Pūaotanga, ki te mātāpuna o Tō whairawa.

Kāore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, te Kotahi, te Takitahi, te Pūkaha, te Mātau-Katoa, te Whairawa.

Heoi anō ka whakakāhoretia e kōrua ko tēwhea o ngā painga o tō koutou Ariki e whakakāhoretia ai e koutou? Mai i tēnā i tēnā tīkina ai e ia te poe‡ nui atu, te poe iti ake rānei.”

E Te Ariki! Ki tēnei Whakawāteatanga Nui Whakaharahara Rawa Atu kua whakaaea e Koe te inoi motuhake a te hunga tamariki ake mō ō rātou mātua. Ko ia tēnei tētehi tukunga motuhake mutungakore o tēnei Whakawāteatanga. Nō reira, e Koe te Ariki ngākau māhaki, me whakaae mai tēnei inoi a Tō pononga kei te pae o Tō takitahitanga, kia whakatotohu tana matua ki te moananui o Tō atawhai, nō te mea kua matike tēnei tamaiti hei ngarengare Māu, ā, ki te whakapau i tōna kaha i ngā wā katoa ki te ara o Tō aroha. Tūturu, ko Koe te Pouhōmai, te Poumuru Hara, te Mākoha hoki!

Ete Ariki, kua anga kē atu tōku mata ki Tōu aroaro, a, kua ruku kē atu ahau ki te moana o Tōu Aroha. e te Ariki whakamāramatia tōku pōuritanga ki Tōu rama, ā, whakakoangia ahau

ki te waina o Tōu aroha. e te Ariki, tukua ahau kia rongo i Tōu reo, a, whakatūwheratia ā mua o tōku kanohi ngā tatau o Tōu rangi kia kite ahau i te māramatanga o Tōu kororia, kia whakawhirinaki atu ahau ki Tō ātaahua.

Tūturu, ko Koe te Pouhōmai, te Marere, te Tohu Atawhai, te Poumurunga Hara.

NGĀ PUKATUHI O TE TORO HAERE

(Pānuitia ai tēnei ki ngā Toma o Bahá’u’lláh rāua ko te Báb. Whakamahia ai anō hoki ki Ō Rāua huritau whakamaumahara.)

Ko ngā whakamihi kua ara ake i Tōu Mauri tino tū rangatira, me te korōria kua ngiha mai i Tōu Ātaahua hahana, he mea takoto ki runga i a Koe, e Koe te Whakatinanatanga o te Whakahirahira, te Kīngi o Ake Tonu, me te Ariki o ngā iwi katoa kei te rangi kei te whenua! Ko tāku whakaaturanga Māu ko te tino rangatiratanga o Te Atua me Tōna tōminiona, mā te nui whakaharahara o Te Atua me Tōna whakahirahira i whakakitea ai, ā, kua horo i ngā Rā o te ahurei onamata tō rātou hahana i te rangi o Tāu kupu e kore e taea te whakarerekē, ā, ko te Ātaahua o Tērā Tē Kitea Ai kua pīata mai i runga o te pae o te orokohanganga. Waihoki, ko tāku whakaaturanga, ki te kori noa iho o Tāu Pene ko Tāu Kupu “Ko Koe” kua manā, ā, ko te Muna a Te Atua kua whakakitea, ā, kua whakatinanatia ngā orokohanganga katoa, ā, ko ngā Whakakitenga kua tukuna iho.

Waihoki, ko tāku whakaaturanga mā Tō ātaahua te ataahua o te Mea Kōingo ka hurahia ai, ā, mā Tōu kanohi te kanohi o Te Mea Āritarita ka pīata mai ai, ā, mā tētahi kupu Āu ka whakataua ai e Koe, mai i waenga i ngā orokohanganga katoa, ka piki ai te hunga piripono ki a Koe ki te taumata o te korōria, ā, ka taka ai ko te hunga whakaponokore ki Rarohēnga rawa.

Ko tāku whakaaturanga ko ia kua mōhio ki a Koe kua mōhio ki Te Atua, ā, ko ia kua tae ki Tōu aroaro kua tae ki te aroaro o Te Atua. Nō reira he nui te whakapainga o tērā e whakapono ana ki a Koe, me Ōu tohu, kua whakaiti hoki i a ia anō i mua o Tōu tino rangatiratanga, kua whai hōnore ki te tūtaki ki a Koe, kua whakawhiwhia hoki ki te harikoa o Tāu e hiahia ai Koe, kua āmio haere i a Koe, ā, kua tū ki mua o Tōu torōna. Kei pahe raruraru ki runga i a ia kua hara ki a Koe, kua whakakāhore i a Koe, kua whakapae i Ōu tohu, kua whakahē i Tōu tino rangatiratanga, kua whana ki a Koe, kua tū whakahīhī ki mua i Tōu kanohi, kua tohe i Āu whakatātakitanga, kua oma atu i Tāu kāwanatanga me Tāu rohenga, kua noho ki waenganui o te hunga whakaponokore, kō ō rātou ingoa kua tuhia e ngā matimati o Tāu whakahau ki Āu Papatuhi tapu.

Nō reira pupuhia mai e tōku Atua e tōku Tau, mai i te ringa katau o Tōu whakaaroha me Tōu atawhai aroha, ngā hā tapu o Āu atawhai, ka kawea ai ahau i ahau anō, ā i te ao hoki ki ngā marae o Tō pātata mai, o Tō Aroaro. He mana Nōu ki te mahi i Tāu e hiahia ai. Ko Koe, tūturu, kei runga rawa o ngā mea katoa.

Ko te maumahara ki Te Atua me Tōna aumihi, me te korōria o Te Atua me Tōna ātaahua, me noho ki runga i a Koe, e ko Koe ko Tōna Ataahua! Ko tāku whakaaturanga kīhai i kitea e te karu o te orokohanganga tētahi pēnei i a Koe te kino o te aupēhi. I ngā rā katoa o Tōu oranga ka rūmakina Koe i raro o tētahi moananui o te pēpēhitanga. I tētahi wā ka herea koe ki te tīni me te herehere, i tētahi atu ka whakawhiua Koe e te hoari o ōu hoariri. He oti rā kō ēnei ēnei, ko Tāu he whakahau i ngā tāngata katoa kia mātakitākina ngā whakaritenga Mōu e Ia te Mōhio-Katoa, te Whai Whakaaronui-Katoa.

Ko tōku wairua hei whakahere mō nga aupēhitanga ki runga i a Koe, ko tōku wairua ora hei utu mō ngā pēpēhinga i mau i a Koe. Ko tāku inoi ki Te Atua, Māu, mā rātou ō rātou kanohi kua ngiha mai i ngā hahana o te rama o Tōu mata, ā mā te aroha ki a Koe, kua whai i te katoa i tukuna ki a rātou, ki te tango i ngā ārai kei waenga i a Koe me Āu kīrehe, ki te hōmai ki ahau te pai o tēnei ao me te ao kei te haere mai. Ko Koe, tūturu, te Kaharawa, te Tino Kairangi. te Korōria-Katoa, te Poumurunga-Hara i ngā Wā Katoa, te Mākoha Rawa.

Kia whakapaingia Koe, e te Ariki tōku Atua, te Rākau-Rote Tapu me ōna raurau, me ōna peka, ōna manga, ōna pūnga, ōna rerenga, ki te roa o te pūmau ki Ōu taitara whai hiranga, o te haere tonu a Ōu āhua tū rangatira. Kia tiakina ia mai i te rāwekeweke a te kaiwhakaeke me ngā tini o te aupēhi. Ko Koe, tūturu, te Kaharawa, te Whaikorōria Rawa. Kia whakapaingia Koe, e te Ariki tōku Atua, me Āu pononga, me Āu hawini kua tae atu ki a Koe. Ko Koe tūturu, te Whairawanui-Katoa, Nōu hoki te tohu aroha mutungakore. Kāore he Atua i tua atu i a Koe, te Poumuru-i-te-Hara, te Marere Rawa.

(Ko tēnei karakia, nā ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, i whakakite, he mea pānui ki Tōna Toma. He mea karakia anō mā te tangata ki tōna kotahi.)

Ka hari ka koa te ngākau o tēnei Pononga ki te tangata e whakatātaki ana i tēnei karakia i runga i te whakaiti me te hīkaka; anō nei kua tūtaki i a Ia kanohi ki te kanohi.

Ko Ia te Korōria-Katoa!

e Te Atua, tōku Atua! Mea iti, mea wairutu, tēnei ahau te toro atu i aku ringa inoi ki a Koe, ā, kua uwhia e ahau tōku kanohi ki te puehu o taua Pae Ōu, he mea whaikorōria i runga kē ake o te mātauranga o ngā mea matatau, me te aumihi o te katoa e whakakorōria nei i a Koe. Tirohia atawhaitia Tāu pononga, mea iti, ngākau pāpaku ki Tōu kūaha, ki ngā tirohanga o te karu o Tōu whakaaroha, ka rūmakina ia ki te Moananui o Tō tohu aroha mutungakore.

E Te Ariki! He pononga pōhara, ngākau pāpaku Nāu, mea manarū e inoi ana ki a Koe, kua mauheretia ki Tōu ringa, e kaha ana te inoi ki a Koe, e whirinaki ana ki a Koe, e tangi ana ki mua o tōu kanohi, e karanga ana ki a Koe me te kaha o te inoi pēnei:

E Te Ariki, tōku Atua! Hōmai Tō atawhai hei manaaki i ngā tau o Tōu ate, whakakahangia ahau i tāku hāwinitanga ki a Koe, whakangihangia tōku rae ki te rama o te pōhana ki Tōu marae o te tapu, o te karakia hoki ki Tōu kīngitanga whakaharahara. Āwhinatia ahau kia kaua ahau e kaiponu ki te tomokanga i te rangi o Tō kēti, kia noho wātea atu i ngā mea katoa o roto o Ōu takiwā e Te Ariki! Tukua ahau kia inu i te kapu o te whakamōwai, te whakawātea i ahau i aku hiahia ake; whakakākahuria ahau ki tōna korowai, whakarukuhia ahau ki tōna moananui. Meinga ahau he puehu ki te ara o ngā tau o Tōu ate, tukua hoki ahau kia tāpae i tōku wairua mō te ao, e rangatira ana i ngā tapuwae o Ō kōwhiringa ki Tōu ara, e te Ariki o te Korōria o Runga Rawa.

Mā tēnei karakia Koe e karangatia ai e Tāu pononga i te atatū i te atapō. Whakatutukitia te kōingo o tōna ngākau, e Te Ariki! Whakangihangia tōna ngākau, whakaharitia tōna tarauma, tahuna tōna rama, ka manaakitia ai e ia Tō Kaupapa me Āu pononga.

Ko Koe te Poutuku, te Whaiaroha, Te Tino Poumanaaki, te Tohu Tūpore, te Tohu Atawhai, te Mākoha.

TE PAPATUHI O AḤMAD

‘’Ko ēnei karakia o ia ata me taki, taea noatia ētahi atu mea motuhake, pērā me te Karakia mō te Whakaora, Te Papatuhi o A ḥ mad, nā Bahá’u’lláh i whatu ki tētahi mana motuhake nō reira me tautoko me whakatātaki e te hunga whakapono ki te whakapono me te whakamanawa e kore e pātaitia, mā reira rātou e uru ai kia tata kē te hono ki Te Atua, me tā rātou here i a rātou anō ki Āna Ture me Āna whakaritenga.”

—Mai i tētahi reta i tuhia mō Shoghi Effendi

Ko Ia te Kīngi, te Mōhio-Katoa, te Whaiwhakaaronui!

Inā, ko te Manu Reo Āwenewene o te Wāhi Pai Rawa kei te tangi i runga i ngā peka o te Rākau o Ake Tonu, he tapu, he rōreka āna tangi, e whakaatu ana ki te hunga pono ki ngā rongo pai o te pātata o Te Atua, e karanga ana ki te hunga whakapono i te Kotahitanga Tapu ki te iāri o te Aroaro o te Ngākau Marere, e whakaatu ana ki ngā mea kua tauwehea i te karere kua whakakitea e Te Atua, te Kīngi, te Korōria, te Kotahi tonu, e ārahi ana i ngā tau ki te tūru o te piringa me tēnei Ātaahua wheriko.

Tūturu ko ia tēnei taua Ātaahua Nui Whakaharahara, he mea poropiti i ngā Pukapuka o ngā Karere, māna te pono e mārama mai i te hē, ā, ko te whakaaronui o ia akiaki ka whakamātauria. Tūturu ko Ia te Rākau o te Ora e puta mai ai ngā hua o Te Atua, te Whaikorōria, te Pūkaha, te Nui Rawa.

E Aḥmad! Kia whakaaturia e koe tūturu ko Ia Te Atua, kāhore he Atua tua atu i a Ia, te Kīngi, te Kaitiaki, te Kotahi, te Kaha Rawa. Ā, terā Ia Tāna tukunga mā te ingoa o Ali§ ko Ia tūturu Tērā mai i Te Atua ko tā tātou he whakarongo katoa ki Āna tohutohu.

Meatia atu: e te iwi whakarongo ki ngā ture a Te Atua, kua herea ki te Bayán e te Korōria, e te Whakaaronui. Tūturu ko Ia te Kīngi o ngā Karere ā, ko Tāna Pukapuka te Pukapuka Matua mei mōhio koe.

Nō reira ko tā te Manu Reo Awenewene tangi ki a koe mai i tēnei mauhereherenga. Ko Tāna noa iho te tuku i tēnei karere mārama. Ko ia e hiahia ana māna e tahuri atu i tēnei tohutohu, ā, ko ia e hiahia ana, māna hei kōwhiri te ara ki tōna Ariki.

E te iwi, ki te whakakāhore koutou i ēnei whiti, mai i tēwhea taunakitanga koutou e whakapono ai ki Te Atua? Whakaaturia mai, e te huhuinga o te hunga hori.

Ēngari, Māna, ko Tōna ringa tōku wairua ora, kāore ēnei, ka kore rawa rā anō, e āhei ki te mahi i tēnei, hei aha koa tā rātou whakakotahi ki te āwhina tētahi i tētahi.

E Aḥmad! Kia kaua Āku rawa e warewaretia i ahau e ngaro ana. Kia maumaharatia Ōku rangi i te wā o Ōu rangi, me Tōku pāmamae, paenga hoki ki tēnei whare herehere. Me ū rawa rā anō koe ki Tōku aroha e kore ai tō manawanui e tītakataka, he ahakoa te uatātā o ngā hau a ngā hoari ki runga i a koe, me te ara ake a ngā rangi me te whenua ki te whakaariki i a koe.

Meinga koe hei mumura o te ahi ki Ōku hoariri, hei awa koiora o ake tonu ki Ōku tau, ā, kia kaua rawa e uru ki roto o te hunga rangirua.

Ā, tēnā ki te pāngia koe e te pōraruraru i runga i Tōku ara, e te whakakurītanga rānei Mōku, kaua rawa rā e āwangawanga.

Me whakawhirinaki ki Te Atua, tōu Atua, te Ariki o ōu mātua. Te take ko te iwi kei te kōtiti ki ngā ara o te pōhēhē, kāore he āta kite i Te Atua ki ō rātou mata ake, he āta rongo rānei i Tāna Pūoro ki ō rātou ake taringa. Nō reira Mātou ka kite i a rātou, inā ko tāu hoki e kite nei.

Nō reira i tū ai ā rātou whakataputapu hei ārai i waenga i a rātou me ō rātou ngākau ka noho wehe ai rātou i te ara o Te Atua, te whaikorōria, te Whakahirahira.

Me mārama ki a koe anō, tūturu, ko ia e tahuri atu ana i tēnei Ātaahua kua huri atu hoki i ngā Karere o nehe e whakahīhī ana ki Te Atua mai i onamata ki anamata.

Kia āta ākona tēnei papatuhi, e Aḥmad. Kia tātakina ia kia kaua hoki koe e noho wehe mai i a ia. I te mea, tūturu, nā Te Atua i whakarite mōna e tātaki ana, ka riro i a ia te rawa o ngā whakahere kotahi rau, me te mahi pono ki ngā ao e rua. Ko ēnei tākoha kua tukuna ki a koe hei rawa nā Mātou, he whakaaroha atu i tō Mātou aroaro, kia whaiwāhi ai koe ki waenga o te hunga whakawhetai.

Nā Te Atua! Ki te pānuitia tēnei e tētahi kua pēhia, kua pāmamaetia rānei me te pono mārika, ko tā Te Atua he whakakore i tōna pāmamae, he whakatau i ōna pōraruraru, he tango i ōna pēpēhi.

Tūturu, ko Ia te Tohu Atawhai, te Mākoha. Korōria ki Te Atua, te Ariki o ngā ao katoa.

TE PAPATUHI O CARMEL

Kia whakakōroriatia katoatia tēnei Rā, te Rā i horahia ai ngā kakara o te aroha tohu ki runga ki ngā mea katoa i waihangatia ai, te Rā nā te kaha o tōna whakapainga, kīhai i taea ai te whakataetae e ngā wā o mua, o neherā, te Rā e tahuri ai te mata o te Namata o Ngā Rā ki Tōna nōhanga tapu. Ina rā ngā reo o ngā mea katoa i waihangatia ai, i tua atu o ērā, ko ō te Huinga Kahurangi o Runga Rawa, ka rangona e karanga ana: “Kia horo koe, e Carmel, notemea, ko te rama o te mata o Te Atua, te Rangatira o te Kīngitanga o Ngā Ingoa me te Kaihanga o ngā rangi kua hīkina ki runga ki a koe.”

Tāmau ana i te kukume o te harakoakoa, pāoroorongia ana tōna reo, ka karanga : “Ko tōku ora pū hei whakaatutanga Mōu, ināhoki, Nāu i hāngai ai Tō mātai mai ki a au, Tō tōnui i tuku mai, ahau i aratakina ai ki Ōu ūpane. Ko te tauwehenga i a Koe, e Koe te Mātapuna o te whaioranga mutungakore, e kakai nei i ahau kia tata hemo, ko te matara rawa atu i Tō Aroaro kua tāwera mārika i tōku wairua ora kia pau. Korōria katoa ki a Koe Nāu ahau i āhei ai ki te rongo i Tō karanga, kua rangatira ahau ki Ō tapuwae, kua whakaterehia tōku wairua ora mā te kakara whakaora o Tōu Rā me te reo pararē o Tāu Pene, he reo Nāu i whakarite hei pūtātara ki waenganui o Tōu iwi. Ā ka tae ki te haora e pā mai ai Tōu Whakapono āraikore, Nāu i hā ki roto o Tō Pene tētahi wāhi o Tōu wairua tapu ki roto o Tāu Pene, inā rā, ka rū ai te ōrokohanganga katoa ki ōna tūāpapa, he hura ki te ira tangata ko aua pohewa i hunaia ki roto i Āna whare tahua, kei reira e takoto ana; ko Ia pū, Nāna nei ngā mea katoa.”

Pāoro atu ana tōna reo ki taua Pokapū tapu, whakahokia ana e Au: “Whakamoemititia Tō Ariki, e Carmel. Ka tere pau koe i te ahi o tō tauwehe i a Au, i te pōrutunga o te moananui o Tōku aroaro ki mua o tō kanohi, he whakakoakoa i ō whatu, me ngā whatu o te katoa o te orokohanganga, he whakahari pai i te katoa o ngā mea e kitea ana, kāore hoki i te kitea. Me harikoa, ko te take i tēnei Rā kua whakatūria e Te Atua Tōna torōna ki runga i a koe, kua meinga koe hei wāhi whakawhiti o Ōna tohu me te mātāpuna o ngā taunakitanga o Tōna Whakakitenga. He painga mōna e karapoti nei i a koe, e whakatātaki nei i te whakakitenga o tō korōria, e whākī nei i aua tūāhua kua tāuwhiuwhia ki runga i a koe mai i te tōnui o te Ariki tō Atua. Kapohia te Kapu o te Oranga Mutungakore i runga i te ingoa o tō Ariki, te Korōria-Katoa, whakamoemititia rā ko Ia, ināhoki Nāna, hei tohu o Tōna aroha ki a koe, tō pāpōuri i tahurihia ai ki te hari, tō raungaiti ki te manawarū. Tūturu, e roha ana Ia ki te pokapū kua meinga hei tūnga mō Tōna torōna, kua takahia e Ōna tapuwae, kua rangatira i mua i Tōna aroaro, mai i reira Nāna Tāna karanga i whakahiki, ki reira ia Ōna roimata i maringi.” “

“Karanga ki a Hīona e Carmel, ka whakatātakina ai ngā rongo pai: kua tae mai a Ia i ngaro i te tirohanga kanohi! Kua tūria Tōna rangatiratanga raupatu-i-te-katoa; kua whakakitea tōna ahurei tākai-i-te-katoa. Kia tūpato kei whakaroa koe, kei kokekoke rānei. Kia tere ka āmio haeretia ai te Taonenui o Te Atua kua heke mai i te rangi, te Pokapū o te Kaingākaunui e karapotitia nei e ngā makau a Te Atua, ngā ngākau parakore, me te huinga o ngā anahera whaikorōria rawa. I ahau e, taku wawata ki te whakatātaki ki ngā wāhi katoa kei runga i te mata o te whenua, me te kawe ki tēnā ki tēnā o ōna taonenui, ngā rongo pai o tēnei Whakakitenga - he Whakakitenga kua autō i te manawa o Hinai, ā, i runga i Tōna ingoa kei te karanga te Rākau Mumura: ‘Nā Te Atua, te Ariki o ngā Ariki, ngā kīngitanga o te rangi me te whenua.’ Tūturu ko ia tēnei te Rā e harikoa ai te whenua me te moana tahi ki tēnei whakaaturanga, ko te Rā hei whakakite i aua tūāhuatanga i whakaritea e Te Atua, mā tētahi tōnui o tua kē atu o te mōhio a te hinengaro, a te pūmanawa o te ira tangata. Kāore e roa ka whakaterehia e Te Atua Tōna Āka ki a koe, ka whakamāramatia ai ngā iwi o Bahá kua whakahuatia ki te Pukapuka o Ngā Ingoa.”

Whakatapua ana te Ariki o ngā tāngata katoa, ki te whakatātakitanga o Tōna ingoa kua tōiriirihia ngā kongakonga katoa o te whenua, kua whakakōrerotia te Arero o te Whakahirahira ko tērā kua tākaia ki Tōna mātauranga, kua hunaia, kua takoto ki roto o te whare tahua o Tōna nui, Ko Ia tūturu, nā te kaha o Tōna ingoa, te Mananui, te Pūkaha-Katoa, te Teitei Rawa, ko Ia te ariki o te katoa kei roto o te rangi, kei runga o te whenua.
