Zoroastrianism

holyimage-001.jpg

Zoroastrianism is the religion and philosophy based on the teachings ascribed to the prophet Zoroaster (Zarathustra, Zartosht). Mazdaism is the religion that acknowledges the divine authority of Ahura Mazda, proclaimed by Zoroaster to be the one uncreated Creator of all (God).

As demonstrated by Zoroastrian creed and articles of faith, the two terms are effectively synonymous. In a declaration of the creed — the Fravarānē — the adherent states: “…I profess myself a devotee of Mazda, a follower of Zarathustra.” (Yasna 12.2, 12.8)

Zoroastrianism was once the dominant religion of much of Western- and Central Asia but as of 2007 practiced only by fewer than 200,000 worldwide, with its largest center in India. (courtesy wikipedia)

  1. iam ethnicaly a baloch iam intrested in zartosht religon but not without reason aciently our religon was zartosthism and our balochi language is related to acient pahlavi language.from balochistan [pakistan]

  2. Amin,

    You are absolutely right. Pakistan west of the River Indus is not part of the “subcontinent” and the Pakistanis who live west of the river Indus (namely the Pashtoons and the Baloch) are Iranian (not indian) peoples. The Greeks called the Pashtoon regions of Pakistan Bactria (from Pakhtaria) and the Baloch regions of Pakistan, Gedrosia (from Gwadar-khwa). The Balochi and Pashto languages are also old Iranian languages.

  3. i think all baloch should unite togather and all should convert back to Zoroastrain religion. pakistanis are foolings us for past 65 years in name of religion as they did to Khan of Kalat
