Sudreh and Kushti are Alats
      The Sudreh and Kushti are spiritual tools or spiritual equipment. When we consider our own internal conflict between good and evil, these tools are indeed golden spiritual weapons [Zarenumantem Surem], that help us with our inner battle. The spiritual equipment of Sudreh Kushti invoke and awaken the energies of our 16 Chakhras. The material, shape, size, form and constitution Sudreh Kushti of the Sudreh as a garment and Kushti as a thick thread, are ordained and geared for the invocation of spiritual energy within.

      Zarathushtrian Science teaches us that Sudreh and Kushti work together as an ALAT. We have already learnt that every piece of matter, whether a stone, a flame, a butterfly or a human, has in its deep interior, a spark of God's Divine Light. Zarathustrian Science teaches us that there are levels of subtle energies reaching the divine. These are dormant and hidden in the deep interior of everything, but can be invoked, awakened and enlightened by certain Manthras and religious ceremonies.

      An ALAT is a material object, in which certain higher level of energies have been awakened. This generates certain wavelengths and vibrations within the object and it then becomes attuned with similar waves and vibrations flowing in nature outside it. A circuit is thus formed which enables the object [now an Alat] to receive and absorb Ahura Mazda's divine light and then transmit it all around.

      Just like the sacred Atash Padshah Sahebs in our Agiaries and Atash Behrams. Sudreh and Kushti are Alats that perform the above mentioned function of absorption and emission of divine energies.

      Sudreh and Kushti, as Alats, play a major role in the process of individual spiritual alchemy. If we keep referring to the Sudreh and Kushti as mere symbols of our religion and ethnicity, it downgrades this lofty spiritual institution and tool and breaks our confidence in its spiritual function.
