 Families of Religions  Zoroastrianism       Combination
 
Zoroaster, an Iranian religious reformer living in about 600 BCE, having received a vision from Ahura Mazda, the Wise Lord, proclaimed a kingdom of justice that promised immortality and bliss. Containing both monotheistic and dualistic features, the religion influenced Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The history of the world was seen as a drama in 3,000 year periods. The Ahura Vairya is the most sacred prayer of this religion and the Avesta is the sacred text. Zoroastrianism continues in Iran and in India where the Parsees carry on the traditions. The Fasli calendar is generally used.
