I have been very impressed with how inclusive a faith the Baha’i is.  The faith founded in the mid 1800s in Iran recognizes the prophets and leaders of most monotheistic religions including Buddha, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.  Essentially Baha’I followers believe in the worthiness of all religions and work toward the unity and equality of all people.   While pictures are sparse images of inspirational sayings such as this one abound.   https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/fd/04/86/fd0486a3db4166b32a0df1acafddb79d--faith-quotes-inspiration-quotes.jpg

The Ringstone Symbol, next to the five pointed star, is the most commonly used in the Baha’i faith.  Found on rings it is also used on necklaces, book covers, paintings, etc.  The symbol was designed by Abdu’l-Baha, the son of Bah’a’u’llah, a primary founder of the faith.   The lower line represents humanity and the created world.  The upper line represents God.  The middle line stands for the site of revelation (Manifestation of God) where people link with God.  The vertical line is the Holy Spirit proceeding from God to mankind through the Manifestation point where we meet with God.  The two stars stand for Bah’a’u’llah and Bab the founders of the faith.    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5f/Ringstone.svg/150px-Ringstone.svg.png
