Windflower Translations


English translations of works of Baha'u'llah 

Windflower Translations contains English translations of works by Baha'u'llah, who was the founder of the Baha'i Faith. The translations have been prepared by scholars who have acted in a personal capacity. Windflower Translations is owned by Alison Marshall and is not affiliated to any Baha'i community institution.


Readings for Comfort and Confidence video series

The Windflower Readings YouTube channel has now put out three videos in the Readings for Comfort and Confidence series. Each video features six readings from the writings of Baha'u'llah, and lasts about 20 minutes. Each reading contains a striking statement about the nature of the Baha'i revelation, or explains the divine power of the believer, or carries important advice on how to live well.



Go to the Readings for Comfort and Confidence playlist.

Main Menu: two options

Translations here

Clicking on Translations here (above) takes you to a list of the 40+ translations on this website. You can also go to the Introductions page to find introductions to the translations.

Translations elsewhere

Clicking on Translations elsewhere (above) takes you to four pages containing lists of translations available elsewhere on the Internet.

Each page has a table with a list of translations, with links to them and to YouTube readings of them (where available).

The lists do not include many translations found in official collections such Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, or scholarly translations. The purpose of the lists is to highlight, for general readers, translations that are not well known.

The translations are listed alphabetically by English title, with the Arabic/Persian name in brackets. The tables are broken down into A-L and M-Z, excluding works beginning “Tablet of/on/to…”, with the two other tables listing those works.

The Translations elsewhere option also has a page listing the principal websites that house translations, where the reader can find further reading.
