This paper explains that Baha'u'llah, who founded the Baha'i religion, followed the Bab, a young man called Siyyid Mirza 'Ali-Muh ammad, who declared himself to be the promised Mihdi --- the prophesied savior or redeemer of Islam. The author points out that today the Baha'i religion is practiced by approximately 6 million people in 200 countries around the world, although its center is still in Asia, especially India, which is home to the majority of its followers. The paper relates that there are three central principles within the Baha'i faith: the unity of God, the unity of religion and the unity of mankind.

From the Paper:

"Baha'u'llah, like the majority of the founders of all the world religions, claimed to have received a vision from the Handmaiden of God, through whom it was revealed that he was the One "whose coming the Bab had prophesied." And not long after this, he left Baghdad and went to the mountains of Kurdistan, where he lived alone for two years. It was during this period that he authored such works as the Four Valleys and other such compositions. On his return to Baghdad, after being persuaded by members of the Babi community to return to the city, he took up his postition as leader of the new religion."
