Zoroastrianism is the world’s oldest monotheistic religion, revealed by a prophet in Persia back in the 5th Century BC. Believing in one supreme deity, Ahura Mazda (Lord of Wisdom), creator and sustainer of all things, the central value is everyone has free will to choose between good and evil. Adherents express their faith through the three tenets of good thoughts, good words, and good deeds.
Suzanne Hill delved deeper into the religion’s profound past with Dhun Karai and Simone Kasad of the Australian Zoroastrian Association. Discover how Zoroastrians conduct their rituals, their faith and scripture, and the belief systems practised in our modern age.
