Her living essence of love lives in all that Is

FOREWORD

By Jack W. Frankel, Ph.D

Dr. Jack Frankel is one of the world's most distinguished virologists and a student of, and well versed in, many of the religions of world. Dr. Frankel traveled extensively investigating and examining many religions. His last trip was through the Tibetan mountains where he experienced several of the rituals exercised by those who follow the Zen Path. (See Foreword end note 1).

 

SYNOPSIS AND OVERVIEW OF “TAHIRIH THEALOGY: 

       FEMALE COSMIC CHRIST SPIRIT OF THE AGE”

 

Tahirih Thealogy: Female Cosmic Christ Spirit of the Age, is a writing which delineates a spiritual Path for all humankind, which in a sense is religion beyond religion. It seeks to empower and upraise the Female and thus upraise the Male in approaching a ‘balanced’ universal society. It accomplishes this intent by identifying the hitherto concealed Messianic station and figure of Tahirih, and liberating her from those who appropriated her figure for their own agenda.

 

Tahirih appeared in Iran in 1844 along with the Bab, as a twin revelator, fulfilling many religious prophecies. However, her message was beyond the confines of orthodoxy and sought to liberate all humankind. Her message, brought to light, has the potential to unite East and West as the author has suggested. To date there has been no work done in Thealogy which includes Islamic prophecy perspectives, and thus should be ground-breaking in its assertions and proofs.

 

While the book is well located in Spiritual Feminism, it also reaches outside of just one placement whereby it is well suited to the general population, the scholars, the gnostic, the mystic, the new-age community, the occult, the religious, the metaphysical world, and of course to Hollywood (as it has all the truth and drama for the making of a powerful movie). But above all, this work should be noted as being a serious historical biography of the life and teachings of an Iranian heroine whose life story is outlined in some of the chapters. These chapters accomplish bringing together many scattered bits and pieces about the life of Tahirih as well as information which has hitherto been obscured, and thus the book has an important and valuable historical document contained within it. Conceptually the book has meaning to the world of science as well in that it upholds the marriage of spiritual teachings with science and presents ideas for further scientific exploration. The Sociologist can not help but benefit from the research put forward in the book concerning the advanced children (starseeds) being born in this Age. All in all this book is well suited for almost everyone and every market, at least in part. The Da Vinci Code named Mary Magdalene as the Holy Grail, but this is the true story of the return of Mary Magdalene only a century and a half ago and is therefore relevant to the now and to the future. 

 

The book incorporates many writing styles, ranging from academic, to pure conversational and should find appeal, at least, in part to anyone who comes by its message. The journey through the book should lead one to self gnosis through raised conscious awareness and prepare the reader for entering the expected paradigm shift.

 

While the chapters and the material therein may not all seem linked they are interactive in that they prepare the reader for gaining a broad view for living in the ‘now’ and being receptive to the Female Voice of our times.

 

The book is cleverly crafted and accomplishes not only presenting a biography of the historical Tahirih but also is in many ways an autobiography of the author herself. I found the book to be not only informative but riveting – a book I could not put down. Starr* Saffa is one of the most intelligent and insightful authors I have had the pleasure of reading and I believe this book will become an all time classic.
