Zoroastrianism or Mazdayasna is an Iranian religion and one of the world’s oldest organized faiths, based on the teachings of
the Iranian-speaking prophet Zoroaster (also known as Zaraθuštra in Avestan or as Zartosht in Persian). It has a dualistic
cosmology of good and evil within the framework of a monotheisticontology and an eschatology which predicts the ultimate
conquest of evil by good. Zoroastrianism exalts an uncreated and benevolent deity of wisdom known as Ahura Mazda (lit. ’Lord
of Wisdom’) as its supreme being. Historically, the unique features of Zoroastrianism, such as its monotheism,messianism,
belief in free will and judgement after death, conception of heaven, hell, angels, and demons, among other concepts, may have
influenced other religious and philosophical systems, including the Abrahamic religions and Gnosticism,Northern Buddhism,
and Greek philosophy.

Zoroastrians believe that everything he created is pure and should be treated with love and respect. This includes the natural
environment, so Zoroastrians traditionally do not pollute the rivers, land or atmosphere. This has caused some to call Zoroastrianism ‘the first ecological religion.
This religion was likely similar to early forms of Hinduism. According to Zoroastrian tradition, Zoroaster had a divine vision of a
supreme being while partaking in a pagan purification rite at age 30. Zoroaster began teaching followers to worship a single god called.
Jewish and Christian figures like Adam and Eve not only have roots in Zoroastrianism but also in the ancient Persian mythology
that preceded it. The archangels may have been derived from Ahura Mazda’s Amesha Spentas – immortal spiritual beings that carry
out the will of a single all-powerful God.
Prayers. Zoroastrians traditionally pray several times a day. Some wear a kusti, which is a cord knotted three times, to remind them
of the maxim, ‘Good Words, Good Thoughts, Good Deeds’. They wrap the kusti around the outside of a sudreh, a long, clean, white cotton shirt.
