Baha’i Faith 101 Infographic

Three weeks ago, I set out to create the most insane infographic in the world about the Baha’i Faith. This is what I came up with…

Baha'i Faith 101 Infographic

I tried to squeeze as much information and as many ideas as I could into a 36″ x 24″ poster-sized document. Hopefully when you click through to the image, you’ll be able to zoom in and out in order to read it a region at a time. Next step is seeing how it prints at poster size. Alla’u’abha!

    I am speechless, Avrel. This is utterly fantastic. Thank you and let me know when you are ready to take orders. 🙂 -alison

  2. A great effort! Fun to see some new things even I didn’t know. You can do the diacriticals though, it’s a pain to learn them, and figure out how to do them in the program, but they will make it look “finished.”

  3. Amazing!! This can be a lifetime of browsing.

    This is absolutely fabulous! I would definitely purchase a printed poster of this!

    This is amazing, I’m discussing the Baha’i faith in an upcoming philosophy lecture; (I’d like this infographic to be reading material for it ) can I share this with my class?

    You might like to send it to bannersrus.com.au the owner is a Baha’i and can print it BIG. It look’s great only question is who is the target audience??

    All of the 10 precepts listed are Catholic to the core. This religion the wonderful insights of its founder are nothing new. Study Catholicism “universal”ism. Peace bro, Jansen

    • Avrel Seale says:

      Thanks for the comment, Jansen. I agree it is not all new (or else it would not be “progressive” revelation), but neither would I say it’s “nothing” new. If it were nothing new, we’d probably have a lot more adherents. Thanks again, and peace to you.

      While it is true that the churches are now – some of them – espousing these principles, they did not do so in the past, and often fought against new ideas that threatened their ‘political’ powers. The Baha’i Faith began with these principles. If we read an outline of the Baha’i project for mankind’s future, and the state of the world at the time, these principles were laid down (approx. 140 yrs. ago), we can see that the world has steadfastly moved in the direction the Writings of the Faith were promoting at that time. The new spirit of God that emerged into this world 173 years ago is changing ALL of us in profound ways. All the great lines of human thought are being revolutionized and harmonized as Baha’u’llah predicted they would.

      Much love,
      Robert

    Dear Avrel, I love, love, love your Infographic. The only suggestion I have — like you need more stuff on it, right? — is to add singers Red Grammar and Andy Grammar, as both have hit songs which are popular and therefore known. With admiration from your new fan, Sue B

    • Avrel Seale says:

      Thank you Sue! I would if I could. Unfortunately I no longer have the software I need to edit this piece, so it stands as a snapshot in time from 2011. Thanks for your nice comment!

  10. Vera says:

    Wow an amazing poster. Perfect for what we plan to do for the Bi-Centenary celebrations, Is this poster available for purchase somewhere preferably could be be downloaded as postage to South Africa remains tricky and risky?

    • Avrel Seale says:

      Vera, thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately, I never did make this available in print, and what is on the web is now the highest-resolution version that has survived my several computer changes since 2011, when I created it. You are most welcome to print it yourself and use it however you’d like, although the images will not be sharp if it goes beyond a certain size. You might try printing it at 24 inches wide as a first try. Thanks again!

    Is it possible to have this amazing infographic printed for our Baha’i Centre?

    • Avrel Seale says:

      Alla-u-abha, Barbara! Please help yourself to it. Unfortunately I no longer have access to the original file, but the online image seems to still be large enough. I have printed it before at 24″x36″ and it looks good. Enjoy!
