Zarathushtrianism       What is Zarathushtrianism all About?

Preview       You now know that your religion is a path that brings you closer to Ahura Mazda. This path was shown to us by our prophet Asho Zarathushtra. He taught us to tread on THE PATH OF TRUTH.



Do you know what it means to follow the path of TRUTH? Being truthful is only a part of that path.

What does "following the path of Truth" mean?

a)

It means understanding the "truth" behind your own existence - what is Ahura Mazda and the Heavens - what is this world and universe -- How did we come to be - and why are we here. What is the purpose to life?

b)

It means understanding the Greater Purpose in life. It means learning to lead your life according to that greater purpose. It means applying yourself to this purpose in everything you do.

c)

It means, understanding that you are made up of a physical body as well as a spiritual body or soul. It means understanding the "GOD Component" in you and all other living things.

d)

It means understanding the need and function of our prayers, Sudreh Kushti, Navjote ceremony, Agiaries and Atash Behrams.

e)

It means understanding how to get closer to Ahura Mazda, how to "tune in" to his help and direction

f)

It means understanding Ahura Mazda's cabinet of Amesha Spentas and Yazads. It means understanding how all creation is under their careful watch.

g)

It means understanding more about our Prophet Zarathushtra. Why he was born, what is his position in heaven, what is the story of his life on earth, what miracles happened in his infancy.



Zarathushtra The fundamental thought behind Zarathushtrianism is individual spiritual alchemy. That means that the Zarathushtrian way of life - complete with morals, customs, rituals, sudreh/kushti, Fire temples, towers of silence and prayers - have been divinely designed to help us convert or alchemize our own negative aspects into good or holy aspects. It does this by addressing the entirety of our being. That means our whole being - body, mind and soul - undergoes the process of individual alchemy. When we follow the path of our religion we will ultimately become victorious in the conversion of evil into good.
