Babel: (Gen. 11:4) "And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name,..."

So the city was going to be built for making a name for themselves. That is why all throughout the Bible, the "city of Babylon" refers to egoistic pursuance for making a name and fame, which is from ego and creates confusion (Babel).

Baha'i Faith: the religion founded by Prophet Bab (Baha'u'llah) in Persia. Its most significant feature is its universal view of religion and its teaching of the unity of humanity. We can say it is a religion of universality.

The symbol of universality is the fifth seal (Baha-s.gif (883 bytes)) in The Greatest Sign.

Baha'u'llah : another name of the Bab, the founder of the Baha'i Faith, the fifth seal in The Greatest Sign. The name Baha'u'llah means, "the worth of God."

Balaam, Doctrine of: any belief or doctrine which does not teach that "The Goal Of The Life Is To Be(come) Divine, That Divinity (God) Is Everything."

Baptism: a ritual performed to become pure, or repentant. It is an act of turning from the external world toward the spiritual world. At the moment of baptism, the person will decide to change the direction of his or her life from flesh toward spirit, so his past deeds will be forgiven for a promise of a new life in purity and goodness.

This universe was made to enable man to overcome his lower nature and go to his higher self. Any moment a person decides that he will change his life and will sanctify it toward good deeds and purity, his past bad actions will be forgiven, and he can start a new life of struggle toward becoming more and more Divine. Through his struggle, he wins God's Grace and will reach salvation.

The act of baptism does not finish with its rituals, but it is the beginning of a lifetime struggle to be(come) Divine (or even many lifetimes).

The ritual of using water and the experience which follows the ritual is because the person is immersed in water, or water is poured on the top of his head (the seventh chakra). Suddenly prana, which is stored in the solar plexus, is released and a blissful feeling occurs. The person feels he received the Spirit of The Holy Ghost.

However, the commitment of the person to be(come) Divine after baptism is what is most important.

It is when an intellectual sees this manifested world as the only truth and has no realization that this visible universe has come from the unseen.
