Ink of Light Presenter: Afsaneh Varzaly

One of Afsaneh’s Favourite Quotes
“Love is the spirit of life unto the adorned body of mankind, the establisher of true civilization in this mortal world, and the shedder of imperishable glory upon every high-aiming race and nation.”

Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p27

What is your favourite book?

My favourite book is Seven Valleys by Baha’u’llah.
I am inspired by its poetic and informative look at the spiritual journey of life.

Who is your favourite hero?

My favourite Hero is Tahirih. I find her sense of strength, courage, far-reaching vision and her devotion inspiring.

What is your main motivation for writing?

To contribute to the betterment of mankind by inspiring people through contemporary stories that show through examples as to how Baha’i teachings can be applied in everyday life through fictional characters.

Afsaneh believes living a life grounded in moral values and virtuous behaviour and focused on being of benefit to others is conducive to happiness and contentment. This forms the foundation of her Romance Novel, I Will Not Cry. She will be speaking on Saturday May 18th at https://inkoflight.org/
