    Welcome, Jules!

    If it wouldn't be too much trouble, I would love it if you could briefly share what ultimately let you to a discovery of Dr. Dahesh.

      as promised....here is where I first discovered Dr. Dahesh, Mario....

      http://www.sectsofbahais.com/

      Dr. Dahesh is featured as a re-incarnation of "The Bab"

      as ever Jules

        I was afraid of that.

        Back in the day, we had attempted to contact the owner of this website, requesting that they remove the section about Doctor Dahesh — on the grounds that it's all based on the work of a man who (by his own words) suffers from mental illness.

        You probably should visit this post...

        (and this one... http://www.daheshville.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1041)

        For the record, the man behind all this caused me, and my family, a lot of anguish. I've forgiven him. After all, he's mentally ill. But the ripple effects of the countless web sites he created are still resonating, and will probably do so for a long time to come.

          Hello Mario...thanks for the clarification...it surely seems the internet can be very much like the "gossip over the back fence" of my old time days. The only exception is....the "gossip" keeps expanding in ever widening circles.
          Pity.

          One question still exists...Is Dr. Dahesh a reincarnation of The Bab?
          If Dr. Dahesh is the 20th reincarnation of The Christ, who was the 19th? or the 18th?

          I love this site and respect your knowledge & commitment to the truth!
          Thank you for all that you do.

          respectfully, Observer Jules

            Hello, Jules, and you're welcome. As for the expansion of gossip, I guess it's entropy at work.

            You know, based on my research, it doesn't appear as though that's the case. I searched the archives, and found these two posts that mention that issue. I know they were supplied by Darrick Evenson. But check out who the actual author is: Ghazi Brax. That was confirmed. Back in the day, Brax would feed plenty of information to Darrick...

            Actually, Dr. Dahesh is not the 20th reincarnation of The Christ. There are a LOT more reincarnations than that.

            Doctor Dahesh is the reincarnation of The Christ's 20th Spiritual Fluid (I have the book, written by Doctor Dahesh, whence that information came.)

            Many Spiritual Fluids from The Christ materialized on Earth. I don't know, offhand, what ranking they each have. But just reading that one paragraph in "Strange Tales and Wondrous Legends, Pt. 3" we see such names as Moses, Elijah, Solomon, David, Abraham, Jacob, ... (the Doctor actually placed the ellipsis, then mentioned Daniel). The list is certainly long. In all, I recommend reading up more about the Spiritual Fluids. Actually, I might even recommend you visit that FaceBook page we recently made public: https://www.facebook.com/groups/112277508842054/

            There, we're slowly featuring the important links found on Daheshville.

              The Power of Darrick

              It's interesting that distortion, exaggeration, lies and deception certainly do make for good reading. Or is that salesmanship? Good fiction? It was some of Darrick's grandiose tales that got my attention.

              And it was hard to get those things out of my thinking. But fiction makes entertaining reading. And the truth is hard to swallow.

              It seems the more I study the major religions, the harder it is to maintain faith.

              I recently have tried to complete reading Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. I try to be fair to authors by not prejudging. This author, I think, tried a little too hard to apply logic to understanding the person described in the new testament. If I believe the reasoning presented, I don't think I could be a Christian.

              After Islam, I don't think the world needed another religion. And correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think Dr Dahesh wanted to create another religion. But Darrick did. Maybe Dr Dahesh wanted to clarify God, the prophets and perfecting the soul. And again, Mario, correct me if I'm wrong.

                Going simply on the basis of what Doctor Dahesh wrote in his piece "I Will Sing," which I translated from a book that the Doctor gave me in the early 1980's, we would have to conclude that the Doctor unequivocally wanted to form a new religion.

                But the main question is "why?". Perhaps the world, which is a big place, did need a new religion that would be able to offer a framework that could deal with the many issues the current religions simply can't offer satisfactory answers for. For example, "why do certain bad things happen to certain good people?" Or, "what crime did this or that infant perpetrate to merit such suffering?" Unanswered questions such as these have pushed many to reject the notion of a Creator, others to fall into deep depression, and the list goes on.

                Plus, you have the bigger picture to consider: Dr. Dahesh, whether we want to accept it, or not, was an envoy/messenger/prophet (whatever you want to call it) sent from a dimension that is far beyond our understanding. Sure, we talk about spiritual fluids and similar concepts; but, let's face it. This stuff is beyond our true understanding. We're human. We're puny. We're so low on the spiritual ranking scale that our dimension is at the threshold dividing "heaven" and "hell."

                Here's my personal observation: The Daheshist religion is coming. When, how, only God knows. But, in the meantime, let's ponder what happened since 1995: The key stakeholders in Daheshism publicly disavowed Dr. Dahesh. In a six page article titled "The Riddle of Doctor Dahesh" published in the December 1996 issue of ArtNews magazine, we found the following official statement on behalf of the Dahesh Museum board of directors:
                Kaplan goes even further. Speaking on behalf of the board, she denies that Dr. Dahesh founded the spiritual movement. "He didn't establish it," Kaplan says. "The fact is, these people (Daheshists), that's what they say. He never proclaimed himself anything, not a prophet, not a reincarnation. He never claimed anything that people are claiming for him. He was born a Christian, and he must have been very charismatic.".
                How many people defended them? Plenty.

                Ironically, back then, these people claimed they were Muslims. Today, they probably wish they could refer to themselves as Daheshists, or followers of Dahesh.

                Only problem is "ISIS" in Arabic yields an abbreviation in Arabic that is داعش, which in English and French sounds like Da'esh — and I say this because I hear it every day, over the radio and TV. Again, it sounds like داهش (Dahesh) because Westerners cannot pronounce that one letter that makes the difference between HEAVEN and HELL.... And the reason, for example, the French Gov. is adamant about saying "Da'esh" over and over... is to annoy ISIS, which has declared war on anyone who refers to it as "Da'esh!"

                Do you see the cosmic joke?

                Anyway, who do we blame when the omelet is ruined? The cook or the "chicken"?

                  .................................................. .................................................. .......Dear Mario & Others...
                  Dr. Dahesh was programmed by the Divine to do what he did....
                  he represented a 20th century example of "Progressive Revelation"
                  His message was pertinent to our Earthly times and our current needs....
                  The Buddha, Mohammed and others came to us with their words of Divine intervention....exactly the same way.
                  That is not to say, that we start every revelation with a clean slate...but we "layer" them one upon the other, to see the total good. Dr. Dahesh knew this to be true.

                        Hi Jules,

                        I've been following your posts. I can only guess the other sources of the internet that you may have accessed. Quite possibly Dr Brax is not in good health, but you could try Najwa Brax. I no longer have Dr Brax's email address.

                        Mario may have a suggestion on how you may get an email to Dr Brax.

                        What other sites have you tried in your search for information on Dr Dahesh?

                          Sorry about that. I suppose, like any city that grows organically to some extent, you've got to travel through it a bit before you got acquainted with its districts, and neighborhoods. Plus, maybe it's the new web design that's more iOS compatible. What you could do is click on the "LEGACY VERSION" link we've made available in the footer of the welcome screen. That's what I personally use, anyway. It's "old school," but it works.

                          There's no one-size-fits-all way to answer this question given that Daheshism was not an invented construct.

                          Usually, and back in the day, you would have (for whatever reason) asked to meet Doctor Dahesh, and an appointment would have been scheduled for you. Once in the presence of Doctor Dahesh, at his house, you would have (most probably) witnessed what Daheshists refer to as spiritual manifestations. At that point, one of many outcomes would have been possible: either you would have believed in the existence in a Divine Power (let's call it that for now), and undergo an instantaneous internal transformation, or you just shrug your shoulders and chalk whatever you witnessed up to magic, sorcery, prestidigitation, or whatever else you might choose to believe you saw. Or, as was sometimes the case, you would excuse yourself and dash out the door.

                          But lest's say you fit the first group, and you realize that you're standing (or sitting) before a man who is no ordinary man. Inside of you, a perfect storm of emotions, ideas, thoughts...

                          After that comes the life-long journey of learning, absorbing, and putting into practice what you've learned (on that front, I recommend reading David Johnson's "My Daheshist America." I think he, more than anyone may be qualified to answer that question for you, being that he'd never met Doctor Dahesh).

                          You get in touch with your heart, you do some serious soul searching, and make a solemn promise to your creator.

                          In time, there might be physical places where one could go and learn all about Daheshism, and register even as a Daheshist. The Doctor himself assured me we'll have a Temple. Currently, however, I would say we're still at the "frontier" stage.

                          Not sure that "Dahesh VILLAGE" is... Did you send it to the Daheshist Publishing Company, in NYC?

                          Oh, I assure you, the mere fact we're mentioning it "live" on this website, the word will eventually spread around.
                          For what it's worth, though, you don't need anyone to be an intermediate between yourself and Daheshism.

                            The only address I have for Dr. Ghazi Brax

                            answering the question....
                            My letter was returned to me as "undeliverable"

                            sent to: Dr. Ghazi Brax
                            Dahesh Heritage
                            1775 Broadway Suite 533
                            New York, NY 10019

                            As Dr. Brax seems to have been such an intregal part of the Daheshism/Daheshist movement in America, it seems a bit strange
                            that this important individual has become unavailable or hidden.
                            Are my suspicions unwarrented or valid?

                            as ever,

                              Unfortunately, like many other people who played an important role in Daheshism, Ghazi Brax is now old; it's as simple as that. I don't think he's hiding. Why would he ? He probably has a lot to deal with regarding health issues.

                              And that's how we are slowly going to lose all the brothers and sisters who witnessed a lot of extraordinary events.

                              In a blink of an eye, we'll just be a memory - and that's if we're lucky !
                              I hope that we would have left something for future generations. Daheshville was created to leave a true and honest account of what we had experienced.

                              Soon enough, if we're meant to live that long, we'll be like Ghazi Brax and people will think we hide.
