The Zoroastrians marked Sadeh, an ancient feast celebrating the creation of fire, in Tehran, Iran this week. Sadeh has been observed since the days when Zoroastrianism was the dominant religion in the powerful Persian empire. Zoroastrianism is the religion and philosophy based on the teachings ascribed to the prophet Zoroaster, after whom the religion is named. The term Zoroastrianism is in general usage, essentially synonymous with Mazdaism, i.e. the worship of Ahura Mazda, exalted by Zoroaster as the supreme divine authority.

We're not worthy of becoming Zartoshti! They never lie!

They keep our culture as it should be and we owe a huge debt of gratitude for saving our heritage! I have nothing but respect for them all!

one has to transform to a much higher being to become zartoshti, and most of us are unable to do that! God bless them and let's hope they last for thousands of years more!


Every Iranian...

Every true Iranian Shiite Muslim is under his skin a Zoroastrian. We will use Islam to further our goals in the region!


Islam va Zartosht

by Mani Atabaki (not verified) on

There has been great effort by Iranian opposition to put Islam in contrast with Zartosht. It is pretty much like Zionist using Judaism as a tool to further their political agenda.

In reality, there is great force of coexistence between the two great religions and what their values are. This is the reason why use of Zartosht was not a very effective tool in Iran.

Just take a look at Tehranjelesi politicians and how they behave and you will find great deal of Anti-zartosht values they are preaching.
