“Education of the individual Bahá'í in the Divine law is one of the duties of Spiritual Assemblies.“

In a letter to a National Assembly on 1 March 1951, Shoghi Effendi wrote:
“The deepening and enrichment of the spiritual life of the individual believer, his increasing comprehension of the essential verities underlying this Faith, his training in its administrative processes, his understanding of the fundamentals of the Covenants established by its Author and the authorized Interpreter of its teachings, should be made the supreme objectives of the national representatives responsible for the edification, the progress and consolidation of these communities.”
