March 26th in Baha'i History


26 Mar 1863 Bahá'u'lláh reveals the Tablet of the Holy Mariner. 

Prompted by the stirrings of the clergy and the Persian Consul General of Baghdád, Bahá'u'lláh was invited to Istanbul on March 26th and given a sum of money for the journey by the Governor of Baghdád. Bahá'u'lláh accepts the invitation but gives all the money to the poor.
