It is related that one day they came upon Majnun sifting the dust, and his tears flowing down. They said, "What doest thou?" He said, "I seek for Layli." They cried, "Alas for thee! Layli is of pure spirit, and thou seekest her in the dust!" He said, "I seek her everywhere; haply somewhere I shall find her."
(Baha'u'llah, The Seven Valleys, p. 6)

Who is Layli and why do we seek her?

North and South?

" Were He to pronounce the right to be the left or the south to be the north, He speaketh the truth and there is no doubt of it. (Baha'u'llah)"

On Sunday 7th December at 12 noon we will meet in the car park at Holwell Gorge for another search for Layli. Holwell Gorge is reached from Launceston by following the West Tamar Highway up to Beaconsfield and watching for the signposts. But it gets more complex there are two entrances to the Gorge, the North and the South or as they or sometimes known the East and the West. We are going to the North entrance or to put it another way, the one furthest from Launceston. If you reach the wrong one you will notice there is no Blue Holden Cruze there. You can either:

1. Jump back in your car and head further up the highway to the right one (its not far).

2. Console yourself with the thought "....North and South are both inebriated with the wine of His presence. Blessed is the man that hath inhaled the fragrance of the Most Merciful,..." (Baha'u'llah)

Some photos and description can be found at

Bring something to eat and a willingness to take part in some Devotions.
