“Zarathushti (Zoroastrianism) 101: Faith, Beliefs, Teachings and History”
June 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
with Maneck Bhujwala
Zarathushtis (Zoroastrians) believe in one supreme God, Ahuramazda (Wise Lord), who has created everything with wisdom, and maintains creation with a law of righteousness, justice, mercy, love, and kindness. God is considered as a friend of mankind who were given the faculty of reasoning and freedom to choose.
Prophet Zarathushtra (known as Zoroaster by ancient Greek philosophers), estimated to have lived over 4,500 years ago in eastern Iranian lands, taught his followers to listen to his guiding principles, about right and wrong, the twin and opposite mentalities of good and evil, meditation to understand his teachings, and decide with rational thinking (instead of blind faith) on choosing the righteous actions in life, and face the consequences of their choices. He taught about equality of all men and women, taking good care of God’s creations, and resurrection of all creations to a perfect state at the end of time.
