"Nazirmoreh brought those drawn to Nazirmoreh as students, out of worldly life and instructed them by up-leveling or revealing esoteric truths hidden in conventionally accepted spiritual writings. The community subsequently went into the wilderness to live a secluded life, learn from nature and grow spiritually. Such was the path of spiritual communities in days of old. Some students left, some stayed and more came, as there is only room for those who are serious about their spiritual advancement….

...The fires of providence presented circumstances which took the community once again out of seclusion, to dwell among the masses, to be an example that there is more to life than what is conventionally taught, and to grow further…"

Rev. Nazirmoreh (ABRD) - A Biographical Account - Veil of Truth Newsletter 4/94

Providence brought the Community  from the monastic retreat to New Orleans in 1985. The Reverend's (ABRD) initial plans of a brief stay on route to relocating the monastic retreat in another quiet, secluded, forested area -  turned into 14 years of heartfelt service in New Orleans. Part I of this preface is a very  brief look at  the establishing of Nahziryah Monastic Community - Retreat for Meditation and Holistic Living in a beautifully, quiet home owners area in New Orleans/ Algiers. Part II is the initial move ('On the Road') to the relocation of the monastic retreat, the mountain top retreat. Reverend Nazirmoreh (ABRD) highly looked forward to the full time live-in members seeing the new Retreat for the first time. However, the Nahziryah bound caravan was detoured at several points along the way. Pictured below is the point when the motor blew out on one of the main traveling vehicles (about half way on route in Duck Hill, MS). From this experience blossomed a beautiful lifelong attunement  and appreciation with the mechanics. (After putting in the new motor, they made sure every thing was alright with the motor by following the caravan nearly to the state border.) Part III  shows some of the very early beginnings of Nahziryah as it stands today (more pictures to follow)…
