Dublin Inn

I am a member of the Bahá’í Faith. Each year a celebratory commemoration of when ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith spoke in Dublin in 1912 takes place on the same anniversary weekend. This year Lyn and I were fortunate enough to attend—one, we hope, of many more in the future—and these are the photographs I took while there. I hope you like them.

While in Dublin, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stayed for some time at the Dublin Inn, now an historic Bahá’í site. This is the first building in the photographs. While there, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá also spoke at the local community church, the current elders of which still graciously allow the Bahá’ís to use for their commemorative talk. That is the second large building in the photographs.

This post is the second of two series of photographs made that day. The first is Gilson Pond.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • Good heavens! What a typical American I am! I had not even thought of Dublin, NH vs. Dublin, Ireland! How parochial of me! I would think that the only connection is a shared name. Many, many places in North America are named after older European towns and cities, often on merely a whim. Plus, the names are often pronounced differently as the settlers knew the name from a book, but not how to pronounce it like a native. Thus (for example) there is MAWH-drid, Missouri vs Mu-drid (i.e.Madrid), Spain.

    • It is in Dublin, NH, just above the Massachusetts border. North of Mt Monadnock. If you can get ot that area it is really very, very pretty throughout that entire area.

    • yes, it is a wonderfully quiet and contemplative place and the caretakers are a lovely and kind couple who are very welcoming and warmhearted. This was our first time there, but hopefully, it will not be our last!

    • “And so am I.” Sorry, do you mean to say that you are a Bahá’í too? And as to New Delhi, you must be referring to the Lotus Temple, one of the most stunningly beautiful examples of architecture on the planet today. It is my hope to someday go there and visit it!

        • I am so glad that you have been there although I confess to a teensy amount of jealousy as I have always wanted to go there. Another Temple is under construction in Chile and when it is finished, maybe, maybe, just maybe we will get to that one. But all joking aside, I am glad that you have been blessed with a visit to the Lotus temple.

    • Thank you! And as always, you are very kind and supportive. It was a lovely day and we had a wonderful time. Luckily, all I had to do was show up and click the button…the camera did all the rest. 🙂
