How one should view the significance of the Master’s visit to the West

‘Abdu’l-Baha's historic journeys to the West, and in particular His eight month tour of the United States of America, may be said to have marked the culmination of His ministry, a ministry whose untold blessings and stupendous achievements only future generations can adequately estimate. As the daystar of Baha'u'llah's Revelation had shone forth in its meridian splendor at the hour of the proclamation of His Message to the rulers of the earth in the city of Adrianople, so did the Orb of His Covenant mount its zenith and shed its brightest rays when He [Abdu’l-Baha] Who was its appointed Center arose to blazon the glory and greatness of His Father's Faith among the peoples of the West.
