Inspiration
Today it behoveth one and all to forgo the mention of all else, and to disregard all things. Let their speaking, let their inner state be summed up thus: ?Keep all my words of prayer and praise confined to one refrain; make all my life but servitude to Thee.? That is, let them concentrate all their thoughts, all their words, on teaching the Cause of God and spreading the Faith of God, and inspiring all to characterize themselves with the characteristics of God; on loving mankind; on being pure and holy in all things, and spotless in their public and private life; on being upright and detached, and fervent, and afire. All is to be yielded up, save only the remembrance of God; all is to be dispraised, except His praise. Today, to this melody of the Company on high, the world will leap and dance: ?Glory be to my Lord, the All-Glorious!? But know ye this: save for this song of God, no song will stir the world, and save for this nightingale-cry of truth from the Garden of God, no melody will lure away the heart ?Whence cometh this Singer Who speaketh the Beloved?s name?? ('Abdu'l-Bah? ? Selections from the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Bah?, Page 93)

Symbolism
The nightingale is a very plain little bird (its colors are brown and cream), but is known for its wonderfully sweet evening song. In the Bah?'? Writings the nightingale symbolizes the Manifestation of God, particularly Bah?'u'll?h. The two crystals signify the B?b and Bah?'u'll?h as twin Manifestations. The green bead symbolizes the B?b as a siyyid?a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. The nine-pointed star represents the Bah?'? Era.

Materials
  • Round beads and birds: batik dyed bone; this bone is strictly a by-product and no animals were killed solely to provide material for these beads.
  • Glass beads: highest quality glass from the Czech Republic.
  • Bead cord: a German product made from silk or polyamid?materials that provide durability with minimal stretching.
  • Siyyid tail: the two clear beads are Swarowski Austrian lead crystals; the green bead is either Chinese or Taiwanese Jade.
  • Nine-pointed star: sterling silver.
