In a few days, the Christian world will celebrate Easter—a holiday signifying the rise of Lord Christ from the dead, three days after his capture, torture, and crucifixion.
His ordeal is a story of faith, love, sacrifice, redemption, and humility. It is also a story of a loving God that has continuously sent his prophets, messengers, and guides to enlighten and guide
humanity. A day or so ago, spring commenced in the northern hemisphere, ushering in the rebirth of nature and the return of beauty, warmth, and color. Also, on March 23, Daheshists throughout the
world will celebrate the birth of Daheshism—a Spiritual Holy Mission that descended on earth on March 23, 1942, ushering in a dawn of a new era.
Daheshism is a glitter of light and hope to guide humanity through a very difficult period, where many individuals had abandoned the belief in a Creator in favor of an evolutionary process, yet not a single individual is able to explain the creation of something from nothing in direct violation of the laws of physics.

Be humble, yet compassionate and resolved?... << MORE >>

By: Dr. Ghazi BraxThe founder of Daheshism was one of the few that contributed throughout history in documenting the living saga of freedom. It was because of freedom that he faced persecution by the Lebanese government during a period when an oppressive regime reined on the country. Bechara el-Khoury (the Lebanese President at the time, 1943-1952) and his evil accomplices from the clergy and citizens, conspired against Dr. Dahesh in order to force him to abandon his activities of promoting a Spiritual Message that calls for the unity of religions. They tried to muzzle him and to illegalize his activities by unsuccessfully attempting to pass a law in the Parliament. Alternately, they resorted to bribing most journalists who, in turn, attacked Dr. Dahesh and fabricated lies about him in order to defame him and in doing so, to drive people away from him—especially the intellectuals who flocked to Dr. Dahesh after they have had enough lies and deception from some religious authorities. They also denied him and his ... << MORE >>
It was June 1st, 1909, when our Beloved descended from his Paradisiacal World to our evil-laden Earth in order to enlighten humanity and to direct mankind towards justice, freedom, love, and righteousness. To us, it was a glorious day and God’s gift to humanity, however, to our Beloved, it meant years and years of agony, pain, and suffering by living a human life that is way too foreign from the life he was living in his Paradisiacal abode, nonetheless, he had a Mission to deliver and, as a result, he had to suffer.
His descent was anticipated and prophesied in the Holy Bible and the Holy Qur’an. His message is that of love, compassion, and Spiritual enlightenment—characteristic of the Greatest Power in the universe before God, namely, that of Christ. But his message is also a warning of the impending destruction of the earth to fulfill certain prophecies, such as this one: “The Lord is going to devastate the earth and leave it desolate. He will twist ...<< MORE >>
Our Beloved and Guiding Prophet passed away on April 9, 1984. While he was alive, he had instructed Daheshists in writing to recite eight items during his interment, beginning with a prayer and then followed by seven expressive pieces in a specific order. The following piece is the third:
When I depart from you
When distance places a formidable obstacle between you and myself, and I am no longer visible to your eyes—eyes that long to see my familiar face.
When you are urged by a strong longing to meet with me, the way we used to meet, at that point, remember what I used to tell you, bring my image closer to your thoughts, and rest assured that your wish is the same as my wish and that it was the only reason for my living.
That’s because I love you so much! Love you so much!
When you are ascertained that I was lashed, slapped, insulted, and driven by the lashers while being insulted, cussed, and then thrown in a horrific and scary prison, where ...
On March 23, 1942, Heavens provided humanity with the most precious of gifts, namely, Spiritual enlightenment. Spiritually speaking, it is akin to the end of the dark ages and the beginning of renaissance. Is this metaphor an exaggeration? On the contrary, it is a grave understatement. The last of the major religions to provide us with Spiritual truths was established in the 7th Century AD. Take time to ponder the behavior of people and you’ll notice that there are many individuals who are interpreting literally their holy books, and if it is up to them, they will institute draconian laws to regulate everyone’s life; some still believe that Creation took place less than 10,000 years ago and regardless of what science says; some individuals are so turned-off by religion that they have resorted to Atheism; then there are those who have gone to extremes by extrapolating and fabricating “truths” to suit their needs, thereby creating their own ...<< MORE >>
The Departure of Christ
From “Memoirs of Jesus of Nazareth”
By Dr. Dahesh
O city of Nazareth! I will return to you after so many years.
I will return to you, however, you will reject me again.
I will return to you when it is time to reveal the truth.
I will return to you, however, you will be drowning in sins.
Then you will not listen to me, as you are not listening to me now!
O city of Nazareth! Woe to you if you continue with your oppression and recklessness!
When my ...<< MORE >>
It was a horrible day!
The day we lost our mentor and Celestial Guide.
After years of being in our midst,
Most took him for granted and few appreciated his sacrifices!
He returned to his paradisiacal abode,
To enjoy the beautiful creations of the Almighty!
Living in harmony among his peers,
In a place that can truly be called divine!
We are left here on earth for a while,
To pay penance for our transgressions!
Living in a state of constant struggle,
And witnessing the cruelty of man!
Our Beloved was relentless, exact, and determined
In setting the stage for us and for humanity
To benefit our Souls from his Divine Message,
And leaving future generations a path to salvation!
We are lazy, arrogant, and selfish!... << MORE >>
In 1942, darkness peaked at a time when human hatred and greed ran amok. Brutality drove millions to their deathbeds, civilizations lost their civility, religious groups failed miserably in controlling their followers, and cries of the wretched reached the heavens.
Such was the backdrop when Divine Light shone upon us on March 23, 1942 to announce its presence and to warn the human soul: either submit to the commands of the Creator and enjoy His eternal bliss or sink deeper into the abyss of darkness! The announcement already reached a select few, but has yet to spread globally pending the completion of the delivery vehicle—The Daheshist Faith as explained in the Book of Daheshism.
The Divine Light seeks the illumination of our souls at a time when humanity ...<< MORE >>
Not by any human court or justice system,
Rather, by a Just Order of Divine Justice.
My crime or multiple crimes and transgressions
Are unknown to me, yet my presence in this life,
Is proof positive of my unadulterated guilt.
I live my life surrounded by others of varied transgressions,
Yet, God only knows what theirs are!
I dare not stipulate, because that would be like “casting the first stone.”
We are all oblivious to our true reality!
To some, our life situations are attributed to luck and to others, it is fate!
Yet some may even venture to label them as strictly random occurrences.
The truth of the matter, we are all serving prison sentences,
And our only way out is to fully serve them.
There are no shortcuts or easy exits!
A served sentence severs our soul from our human form,
Where it stands anew to further retributions and rewards.
No deed is forgotten or ignored! Yet the sentence ...<< MORE >>
Words are incapable of describing the extent of the sacrifices made by all manifestations of the Christ Power, for many were oppressed, tortured, imprisoned, ridiculed, and killed. The persecution of Lord Christ and the crucifixion of his Personality, as well as, the persecution of Dr. Dahesh and the execution of his Personality are classic examples. What impact did Lord Christ’s teachings and crucifixion ...<< MORE >>
As I live among fellow human beings, I ponder over their physical, cultural, behavioral, and intellectual diversity as well as all the contradictions that are associated within them. I see the extremes and all shades in the middle between the rich and poor; healthy and sick; young and old; good and evil; generous and stingy; happy and sad; reserved and permissive; moral and immoral; intelligent and dumb; playful and stern; religious and atheist; gentle and harsh; kind and abusive…My pondering leads me to the ultimate question: What does it all mean?
To Daheshists, there is only one answer: Being one with the Creator. One may wonder, how human diversity and all the contradictions lead to being one with the Creator? According to Daheshist ideology, the entire physical universe is comprised of 150 levels of infernal worlds and 150 levels of lofty worlds. Each level is made up of countless environments where life can form, such as the case for all living entities on Earth. The two extremes represent the furthest from and the closest to the Glory of God, and ...<< MORE >>
Over three millennia had passed since Moses presented us with the Ten Commandments and the most basic of laws to live righteously and that form the basis of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Two millennia had passed since Lord Christ preached to us about humility, compassion, and love. A millennium and a half had passed since the Prophet Muhammad turned the pagans of the Arabian Peninsula into God fearing people. Three Prophets of God who are descendants of the Prophet Abraham had laid down the ground rules for proper human behavior and provided us with a wealth of information about our existence. One may think that followers of these religions would recognize the lineage and would respect each other. Instead, each religion fractured and in addition to intra-faith fighting, interfaith fighting continues to this day.
Since the times of Moses and to this day, humanity endured the most horrific acts of violence—all in the name of religion. In reality, no religion would sanction such behavior. From the late 19th Century and to ...<< MORE >>
Excerpt taken from New Light on the Founder of Daheshism and His Miracles, by Ghazi Brax, Ph.D., Melhem Chokr, Ph.D., and Fares Zaatar, Esq.
Soon after the author, Youssef El-Hajj believed in Daheshism, a number
literary and scientific figures, as well as members of the elite
society in Lebanon also believed in Daheshism. Of those was the author
Marie Hadad, the president of the Artists Association and the
sister-in-law of the former Lebanese President, Bechara El-Khoury. She,
her husband, and members of her immediate family all believed in
Daheshism after they have seen his irrefutable miracles.
As a result of this expansion in the new belief that infiltrated
Lebanese society in all of its religions and acted to unite them by
eliminating illusions and worthless traditions, thereby creating a buzz
in the Lebanese and Arabic press. The family of Marie Hadad and her
siblings—especially, her sister Laure and her brother Michel Chiha—who
were devout Catholics, were afraid that the power of the Catholic
Church in Lebanon would weaken, so they plotted against the Man of
Spirit, supported by President, Bechara ...
