According to the Encyclopedia Wikipedia, Zoroastrianism, or more natively Mazdayasna, is one of the world’s oldest extant religions, approximately 3500 years old. The religion is based on the Teachings of the Iranian Prophet Zarathusti (Zoroaster) who lived in Persia, what is now Iran. For one thousand years it was one of the most powerful religions in the world and the official religion of Persia from more than 1200 years, until the arrival of Islam.
As a result of the Revelation He received at the age of thirty, Zoroaster boldly proclaimed Ahura Mazda to be the one uncreated God, existing eternally and Creator of all else that is good. While the Gathas, part of the Zoroasterian scriptures called the Avestas, talk about two spirits which battle for ascendancy, it is certain that a final savior at the end of time will bring the complete and final victory of good over evil, ending dualism and restoring the oneness of reality. Zoroastrians do not see evil as inherent in nature but as greed and anger.
The essential value that All human beings are responsible beings with equal dignity and rights is inherent in Zoroastrianism which affirms that the purpose in life is to “be among those who renew the world…to make the world progress towards perfection”. Its basic maxims include: a) Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds; b) There is only one path and that is the path of Truth, and; c) Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do, and then all beneficial rewards will come to you also.
Zoroastrian theology includes a duty to protect nature. Among its strongest precepts, the Zoroasterian scriptures call for the protection of water, earth, fire, air.
At the Humanics Sanctuary a site has been reserved for sculptures or plaques of Zorastrianism that portrays the three essential values that the Humanics Institute is meant to promote. The Institute would appreciate if Individuals or groups belonging to the Zorastrianism faith, could volunteer to work with the Institute to develop this site with relevant sculptures or plaques and appropriate landscaping.
