The station of the Letters of the Living – gleaned from the Writings by the Guardian

  • The “first Letters generated from the Primal Point”;
  • The “company of angels arrayed before God on the Day of His coming”;
  • The “Repositories of His Mystery”;
  • The “Springs that have welled out from the Source of His Revelation”;
  • The first companions who, in the words of the Persian Bayán, “enjoy nearest access to God”;
  • The “Luminaries that have, from everlasting, bowed down, and will everlastingly continue to bow down, before the Celestial Throne”;
  • The “elders” mentioned in the Book of Revelation as “sitting before God on their seats,” “clothed in white raiment” and wearing on their heads “crowns of gold”. (Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By)
