· Oppression
grevious
What “oppression” is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it?
(Bahá’u’lláh, The Kitáb-i-Íqán, page 29)
want of capacity
Whereas, by “oppression” is meant the want of capacity to acquire spiritual knowledge and apprehend the Word of God.
