Prescription for Living, written by Amatu’l-Bahá Rúḥíyyih Khánum was first published in 1950. It was subsequently revised in 1978. The subject of this book is man’s present unhappiness, confusion and uncertainty with the book’s aim, as the title states, to provide the reader with a prescription for living. As Rúḥíyyih Khánum states in the Foreword to her book:
“When a person is ill he takes medicine. We individuals are the members of a very sick species–man; living in a very unhealthy environment–society. There are laws of what we might call “inner hygiene” which, if obeyed, will assist us to regain our moral and spiritual health personally, and, through changing us as the components of society, enable our joint lives to be happier and better in every respect. Those laws are dealt with briefly in this book…”
