The words in
Zarathushtra’s message are filled with love and peace. Zarathushtra
teaches us to find truth and practice it through our words and actions. We
are free to make our own choices in life, but the best way to exist for us
is to follow the path of truth.
understand the teachings of Zarathushtra, we will live in truth and
happiness; but we must practice what he has taught us.
You grant happiness to both factions through your bright
Fire, Wise one, as well as through the purifying test. This is the
established principle of existence: Sufferings for the wrongful, and
blessings for the righteous.
choose to live his life in truth and happiness or in deceit and darkness
as we are free to make our own mistakes in life. When we choose a life of
evil deeds we suffer pain constantly, but if we spread love and happiness
to others we are happy and perform good deeds. We are in a “house of song”
and Ahura Mazda shall surely bless us for our good choices in life.
Wise God, singing praises, I shall always venerate You with
righteousness, the best mind, and sovereignty so that the aspirant stands
on the path and listens for the manifestations of revelation for the
devotees in the House of Song.
But we must
have knowledge about the teachings of Zarathushtra in order to make the
right choices that lead us to happiness and truth.
Zarathustis have chosen Zarathushtra as our leader and teacher to guide us
and to inspire us to live in peace and love with nature and all mankind.
message he advised us to think and use our good mind in order to travel on
the right path in life.
The best shall come to the wise person who will propagate
my true thought-provoking message. It leads to righteousness for wholeness
and immortality. Thus the dominion of the Wise One will through the good
mind, increase for him.
is the best medicine for us as it can make us happy and better people. But
we must open our minds to hear the voice of Zarathushtra and fill the
power of Mazda inside us. We shall never find ourselves unhappy if we have
something to believe in, and we Zarathushtis believe in the love of
Zarathushtra and his and our supreme God, Ahura Mazda. It is our duty to
help Ahura Mazda spread love and peace.
We are born
to live in freedom, but we must fight for our freedom. When we have
overcome all evil deeds, we must defend ourselves so that the evil deeds
do not triumph over the good ones. This is important for us to do, so that
we can destroy all darkness in this world, and the light of Mazda shall
bless us all now and forever.
Zarathushtra walked around spreading his new message to the people, many
ignored him, while some listened to him. But when they listened to him
with an open mind, a light inside them began to “speak” to them, and they
began to practice Good Words, Deeds and Thoughts, the ethical code
for a Zarathushti. And now in this modern world, many people have chosen
Zarathushtra as a leader and teacher for a life of happiness and truth. We
must spread the teachings of Zarathushtra, so his voice never dies and
that people will always learn the true meaning of his message.
Some of us
are born Zarathushtis whilst others convert to Zoroastrianism after they
have studied the religion and chosen Zarathushtra as their teacher. I am a
Christian, but after reading about Buddhism and the Islamic religions, I
have chosen to practice the teachings of Zarathushtra in Sweden.
I am happier
after I have read some of the songs from The Gathas. My question is, how
can Zarathushtra make me happy now? When Zarathushtra lived so many years
before me? When we read a song from The Gathas, our hearts and mind are
filled with Ahura Mazda and Zarathushtra and that brings us true
happiness. Only when we are happy inside, we can spread love and peace to
already gone through two world wars and we hope there will not be a third.
In today’s modern world, in many countries we have wars where many young
people die and their families are left without money or food. If we work
side by side and destroy all the weapons on earth, we shall live in
freedom and happiness. Whether you are an Iranian or Swedish is not
important. If I kill you, your blood is red and if you kill me my blood is
also red as we all have the same colour inside us. We can cry and be
happy; we can feel love and hate. A big difference between us and other
animals is that we can change the world to be a better place to live in
for all mankind and animals. Animals do not wish to feel pain and so a
Zarathushti must also preserve wild life and nature. I think that is
important for a Zarathushti to consider in life.
Words, Deeds and Thoughts every day, twenty four hours a day and fill your
heart with love and peace.
Now I shall speak to those who wish to hear of the two
principles, which are of importance even to the wise. I shall also, with
reverence for good mind and the good consideration of righteousness, have
praises for the Lord, so that you may see brilliant happiness.
Zoroastrianism is a small religion and I think that is good. However in
Sweden, where I live, not many people have heard about Zoroastrianism and
First of all,
born Zoroastrians living in Sweden do not make any propaganda about
Zoroastrianism and Zarathushtra. After I have learnt about the
Zoroastrian religion, I call myself a Zarathushti and I have found that
being truthful and practicing truth has given me immense happiness. The
teachings of Zarathushtra have filled me with love and peace.
And I think
that the meaning of life is to find both happiness and truth inside you.
For it is only when you have found happiness and truth within yourself,
that you can spread it to others.
Righteousness is the best good. It is radiant happiness.
happiness comes to the person to whom righteousness is for the sake of the
best righteousness alone.

is one of my favourite prayers and it gives me
hope when I read it every day.
fills us with happiness, love and peace and when we have these qualities
within us we will have found a good life. We shall live in happiness and
enjoy a long life on earth.
Zarathushtra and Mazda
O, Mazda you loving God, You make us happy to live on this earth. With
your power you give us the will to make a better world.
O, Zarathushtra, you Good prophet, you teach us about Mazda, the one of
We pray to Mazda for a long and happy life on earth, to live in harmony
side by side with all people.
O, Zarathushtra you teach us to be good
And we shall always do what you teach us to do; your teachings make us
happy and give us in WORDS, DEEDS AND THOUGHTS, hope.
O, Zarathushtra you have given me this new life, and I shall never forget
your good teaching. I shall always spread your love around me. Now and
I shall share all these lovely teachings so more can have some chance to
learn from you.
Side by side I shall work with your good teachings, and I shall always
created to live in love and peace and not in hate and war. We must teach
this to those filled with hatred so they can begin to love and spread
peace and a new world shall grow under us. Always remember to have love
and peace in your mind.
With the help
of Zarathushtra’s good teachings we can find love and peace inside us and
when we have found this, we should never lose it. In this modern world,
many people do not have much food to eat and many children sleep on the
streets. We must keep fighting and spread love and peace so that wars and
misery no longer exist and all have food and a bed to sleep on. Don’t we
all have the same right to eat before we go to bed?
Zarathushtra’s voice we can find peace and love. Let us open our minds and
hearts to hear his voice and begin to practice his words in our lives. We
are all good people and we shall surely find a way to happiness and
happiness and truth, and with the help of Mazda’s light inside us, we will
be people of “Good
Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds”.
