Now is the time to raise again the profound Spiritual Teachings of Zarathushtra, the forerunner of all Saviors, and to bring these teachings to their original and divine harmony - that is the mission of this web site.
after Christmas (Jan. 6), we celebrate the Three Kings, who, guided by a star,
arrived at Bethlehem and payed homage to the infant Jesus. However, did you know
these three men in fact were no kings, but Zoroastrian priests, called the Magi
in the original Greek text of the Gospel of Matthew? It is translated in the
King James Version as "wise men" and also by Daniel in earlier Hebrew
scriptures (Daniel 2:48). The Magi followed an allegorical Zoroastrian prophecy
about three Saviors to come - they were looking for Jesus!
Zoroastrianism was the
first monotheistic religion in History and the official (world) religion
of the Persian Empires, then ruling over half the known world, where the Magi
were a religious caste. The three Magi in Bethlehem were Zoroastrian missisonary
priests, astronomers and teachers of techniques, that looked like magic to ancient
people and it also led to the English term magic, while the Magi were no magicians
at all, but wise men indeed!
In spite of the intense pain, I didn't give a sound and for days I took care my mother wouldn't see my reddish palm, until it looked normal again - she never found out about my "sin".. Had I been old enough, my mother likely wouldn't have warned me, assuming I'm "wise" enough not to do such a foolish thing. If yet, there would have been no reason for her to punish me, as I then had punished myself already - she would take care of healing my hand instead. As a 4-year old, I was afraid she would become angry and punish me.In analogy, my mother was "God", a punishing one for me as a 4-year old, but a caring one at older age, allowing me to punish myself. In Zoroastrianism, this is God in essence, He/She lets us punish ourselves when we make the wrong choices, and so we don't have to fear God, but rather our own ignorance instead. Zarathushtra urges us to eliminate ignorance, so we will make the right choices, thus rewarding ourselves .... already in this life ... and consequently, in the Hereafter!
to help us all, to renovate our battered World!
