Zarathustrianism (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Zarathustrianism (Zoroastrianism) is the first monotheist religion in the world. Its founder, the prophet, Zarathustra (Zoroaster), was born in the North East of Iran and although there is no consensus on when he lived, the most logical estimation for his life time is about 1500 BC.

Zarathustra was an ordinary person who knew the pains and sufferings of ordinary people very well. He believed that humans possess free will and have the power to choose between good and evil. All his teachings are about justice, benefaction, truth, health and happiness and after thousands of years many of his teachings and rituals about how to have a good life are still practiced in Iran and in other parts of the region. The sacred text is the Avesta, which is the spiritual book of all Zoroastrians even today.

In this course we will discuss topics such as: Zarathustrianism as religion reflecting Iranian soul; Time of Zarathustra’s appearance; his teachings; his heavenly virtues; Zarathustra’s religious principles and manifestation; its historical destination; present time status; and Zarathustra’s place in current life of Iranians.
