Introduction to Daheshism.com website
We live at an age where human beings are sending unmanned vehicles to the planets of our solar system and are deploying telescopes outside of earth’s atmosphere to minimize distortion while peeking through time down to the first lights after the Big Bang. Advances in biology, chemistry, quantum mechanics, and computer science are ushering in the age of the digital revolution, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and the mapping of the human and nonhuman genomes along with advances in gene editing that may lead to the eradication of many of the incurable diseases human beings suffer from.
It is an exciting era, but it is also a sad one! We have seen the damage human beings are inflicting on this planet by the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the loss of habitat for many animals, and the danger of a nuclear conflict that threatens to wipeout life from the face of this earth for thousands of years. In the past 100 years we have witnessed two World Wars and many regional conflicts that continue to this day. Add to that many of the conflicts instigated by religious intolerance leading to barbaric deaths, mass homelessness, and unbelievable destruction.
Religion and science continue to diverge. Many scientists no longer believe in a Creator and have been influencing the way people think. Many that belong to religious beliefs are not religious at all. Traditional religions are unable to explain the vastness of the universe, the Big Bang, the probable existence of life throughout the universe, the discovery of fossils that date back to over 65 million years--a refutation of the religious belief that life began only a few thousand years ago. Evolution verses Creation and Evolution verses Intelligent Design continue to be hot topics for many.
Daheshism is a 21st century Spiritual Message of Guidance that bridges the gap between religion and science, for there can never been a conflict between a Spiritual truth and a scientific truth. If religion fails to explain a scientific truth, then our religious understanding is flawed. Daheshism embodies the essence of all religions, yet it goes beyond any of them in order to quench the thirst of truth seekers by providing them with a unique perspective on the Universe, our existence, and purpose in life. It is a new garment for the body of traditional thought and belief. The aim of Daheshism is to provide a universal belief that encompasses all other beliefs. It accomplishes synthesis rather than fragmentation of religious beliefs and expansion rather than contraction of philosophical thought.
Daheshism is an endless quest for the truth, while recognizing that our perception of the “truth” is relative. There are no absolutes in the physical world that we live in. Taken in this context, no one religion has a monopoly over the “truth”. All religious beliefs call for decency, ethical behavior, compassion, and doing good. They are better described as many roads leading to one destination, for their essence is the same. Daheshism, in earnest, is a unifying faith that encompasses all beliefs.
Daheshism calls for compassion towards fellow human beings and to the plight of the needy, sick, and disadvantaged. It is a true call for the brotherhood of mankind, where race, gender, country of origin, wealth, class, and religious beliefs are not used to create chasms between us, but rather to instill in us respect towards each other and to celebrate our diversity. Daheshism also heightens our compassion towards all living species on earth, treat them humanely, lessen their suffering, and minimize the damage to their environments.
We are a group of individuals from all walks of life and dispersed throughout the world, who had the privilege of being exposed to Daheshism.
Some of us had an opportunity to: be with Dahesh, witness his miracles, travel with him, live with him, and listen to his wisdom. Although some of us have never had the pleasure of meeting Dahesh in person, due to age or circumstances, yet our faith in him and in his Mission is strong—it is always reassuring to remember the words of Lord Christ:
“…How happy are those who believe without seeing me!” (John 20:29)
The content of this web site has been collected from magazine and newspaper interviews and reports and other publications. Although this web site is limited in content at this early stage of development, it is expected to grow significantly as fellow Daheshists finish preparing testimonials about their experiences with Dahesh and Daheshism.

Daheshism is a spiritual/philosophical faith that calls for the brotherhood of mankind regardless of race, religious affiliation, or convictions.It also calls for reforming one’s self,
willingly seeking righteous deeds, and returning to the essence of religions devoid of tribalism and intolerance. It calls for the return to righteousness, enlightenment, and certitude, love, compassion, and forgiveness—the pathway to heavens and to the unity of religions.
Any believer in Daheshism is called upon to adhere to the teachings of his religion, because all religions have the same lofty goals. It is necessary, but not sufficient, to be versed in religious holy books, because salvation is not possible without applying such teachings to all aspects of life. Acting upon such teachings brings the person closer to God Almighty.
In order to have just laws, comprehensive equality, and total brotherhood of mankind, Daheshism calls for a genuine spiritual awaking and an elaborate intellectual revolution, so that individuals live as members of one family governed by love and brotherhood.
Daheshism believes that man is formed from a physical body, Spiritual Fluids (Sayyals for short), and a Spirit. The body is nothing but a physical instrument to shackle the Soul on earth for a specific period of time and only through death that the Soul is liberated.
As to the Spiritual Fluids (Sayyals), they are the fundamental components of life’s true nature on earth. They resemble the cords of a musical instrument that produces different tunes with varying frequencies—waves that can either be constructive or destructive in nature.
As to the Spirit, it resides in a Spiritual Realm created by God Almighty—a Realm devoid of time-space. The Spirit is not governed by any universal laws or the laws of nature. The Spirit is a Mother Spirit to all the Sayyals that extend life to a being and reincarnate from one physical existence to another in worlds of varying lofty or degraded levels until such time that the Sayyals are able to elevate themselves and reunite with their Mother Spirit.
The happiness is great when a Spiritually elevated Sayyal is reunited with its Mother Spirit, which would then bring the Spirit closer to merging with the Creating Force (God). Just as there are different material worlds corresponding to the Spiritual rank of the various Sayyals, so is the case in the Spiritual Realm, where the Spirits are also ranked and elevated or downgraded with the elevation or downgrade of its Sayyals in the physical realm. The Spirit is likened to a butterfly that glides depending on the wind direction and either finds itself in a refined or degraded place.
Spirits are not subject to death, because they are eternal Spiritual entities. Daheshism calls for an unwavering belief in the eternity of the Spirits, a system of just rewards and retributions based on Spiritual causality and reincarnation.
According to Daheshism, death is an instrument of transitioning from one state of life to another. The future abode of a human being after death is determined by his thoughts, sayings, and deeds represented in his Sayyals. Sayyals continue to transition throughout the stars and planets depending on their merits, while the body deteriorates and reverts to its original basic elements. The Sayyal that leaves the individual could reincarnate into an animal, vegetation, or inanimate object, because they all possess intellect and perception. The physical forms change, however, the Sayyals transition from one state to another and burdened with responsibility through the ages. The Sayyal could transition into a drop of water, a sand grain, or an air breeze…
Reincarnation in Daheshism doesn’t take place only on earth, rather it can be at different planets, stars, and cosmological objects, for they all are worlds populated with beings and each with its own physical characteristics.
Daheshism is a loud voice from heavens trumpeting righteousness. It is a light from God, glory be to His name, and the dawn of enlightenment and truth.
