Publisher's Summary

Would you like to improve your thoughts and feelings about the world around you? If so, then you will find Zoroastrianism and the Teachings of Zarathustra: The Zoroastrian Creed and Selected Sacred Hymns of Zoroaster with Prayers and Liturgies of the Faith in Modern-Day English richly rewarding.

Referred to as Mazdayasna by its followers, Zoroastrianism is widely regarded as the world’s first monotheistic religion, meaning that it worships a single divine god.

The Zoroastrian faith was founded by the prophet Zarathustra in Persia nearly 3,000 years ago.

Known to the Greeks as Zoroaster, Zarathustra believed that God had entrusted him with a message for all humankind, and he preached this message in plain words to ordinary people living during his time.

The faith emphasizes the worship of wisdom and truth by striving for good thoughts, good words, and good deeds.

These teachings continue to be relevant in our time because of their emphasis on human choice and human thought as powerful forces in the universe.

Written in modern, easy-to-understand English, the publication first provides an introductory overview of the faith, its God, beliefs, and main deities.

The creed or declaration of the faith is given in the next chapter. This is followed by selected hymns or “gathas” of Zarathustra, as well as selected prayers and proclamations of worship.

The book is suitable for those wishing to learn about Zoroastrianism or for practicing Mazdayasnians looking for a daily devotional book.

Insightful introduction to Zoroastrianism

As someone who had heard of Zoroastrianism but didn’t know too much about it, I found this to be a very insightful book that covers the key teachings of this faith. I was pleasantly surprised to see how similar Zoroastrianism is to other faiths and I strongly believe that learning about other faiths is the key to promoting greater understanding and goodwill between people of all faiths.
