Bienvenidos a mi pagina del Web. Esta es una foto de mi sobrino y yo. Si te preguntas cual es mi sobrino y cual soy yo, el es el que tiene cara de travieso.


Soy Catedratico Asociado aqui en la Universidad de Puerto Rico en MayagüezMayagüez (UPR-RUM). Trabajo en el departamento de Ingenieria Electrica y Computadoras.

Si esta buscando lo que hago en mi tiempo libre, note que soy Catedratico Asociado, lo que quiere decir que no tengo ningun tiempo libre. Una de las cosas que hago fuera de la Universidad es estar envuelto en las actividades de la comunidad Bahai aqui en el area oeste de Puerto Rico.

Baha'i Faith

Soy miembro de la Fe Baha'i . La Fe Baha'i dice que uno de los propositos de la religion es ensen~arnos lo que va mas alla de lo material. La ciencia es maravillosa, pero no puede ensen~arnos valores, no distingue entre el bien y el mal, y no da un proposito a la vida. La religion es la que nos dice que tenemos un alma, que hay un Creador Todopoderoso, y que hay un orden y un proposito en este universo que va mas alla de lo material. O mejor dicho, que este universo material es un reflejo de una realidad espiritual.

Baha'i Faith

I am a member of the Baha'i Faith. The Baha'i Faith is religion. The Baha'i Faith is religion? Must be a typo, maybe the Baha'i Faith is a religion. Well, no typo, but let me explain what I mean. One of the central teachings of the Faith is that God is one. We believe that there is only one God who created us all. The implication of this is that when a person prays to their Creator they are praying to the same God. No matter whether they are brown, black, yellow or white, woman or man, rich or poor, it does not even matter what religion a person believes in, it does not change the fact that we all have the same Creator. The Baha'i Faith also teaches that humanity has passed through different stages in its long process of growth, and has been in need of education appropriate to its level of development. We believe that God has sent down perfect Teachers, Manifestations of Himself, to teach us what we needed at different times of our development. We believe that Moses, Zoroaster, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab, and now Baha'u'llah are Manifestations that have come with the the teachings from God appropriate for the age in which they lived. In this sense, what have been come to be known as different religions, can be seen as one. I don't intend this to be a study of comparative religion, so instead of comparing how these religions are practiced today, let us focus on the teachings of the Manifestation. Since the age in which these Manifestations came was not the same, some of the teachings are different. If we divide the teaching into social and spiritual, we see that the spiritual teachings are the same. It is love and harmony, not hate and prejudice that is promoted by the teachings of these Manifestations. This oneness of religion is what I meant when writing the Baha'i Faith is religion. This is not to say that there is nothing new in the teachings of Baha'u'llah. In fact, this being one of the most turbulent times in the history of humanity, there is an incredible wealth of teachings on the solution to the problems we are facing in the writings of the Faith. Well, what are they? Unfortunately a faithful introduction is beyond the scope of this page; for more info click on the links. However, for a short intro here are some words of Baha'u'llah, founder of the Baha'i Faith.

The utterance of God is a lamp, whose light are these words: Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Deal ye one with another with the utmost love and harmony, with friendliness and fellowship. He Who is the Day-Star of Truth beareth Me witness! So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth. The One true God, He Who knoweth all things, Himself testifieth to the truth of these words.

Exert yourselves that ye may attain this transcendent and most sublime station, the station that can insure the protection and security of all mankind. This goal excelleth every other goal, and this aspiration is the monarch of all aspirations.
