The Ten Primordial Masters - 04 Zarathushtra

The Ten Primordial Masters - 04 Zarathushtra

Published by phoba
Part of the series "the ten primoridial masters"

The word 'religion' is a western term, the eastern word, Dharma, simply means `duty’. The Primordial Masters taught that of all Dharma, the best is to utter sincerely the praise and names of God. That is the foremost of all religions, and the work of The Ten Primordial Masters was the religion of bringing the Lord and his Power, to all people.

They taught to all people that religion abides in every soul. It is the innermost nature of everything that exists. It is the yearning of man to be perfect. As there is Only One God, there is only one religion: Of the droplet of water to become the ocean; of a flame to merge with the fire, of the incomplete man to become complete, then he must receive enlightenment and realise the self.

ntroduction___________
The Zoroastrians of Iran were members of the Indo-European family known as theAryans. They called themselves Zoroastrians because they believed in the teachingsof the first Aryan prophet, Zarathushtra.Zarathushtra was the first prophet to preach a monotheistic religion, and He was bornin Iran about 8000 years BC. He revealed that there was only one God, Ahura Mazdaand that life in the physical world was a battle between good and evil.As per man's actions, he would either cross the "Chinvato Peretu" or the sword bridgeafter death, and reach Heaven, or fall from it and go to the abode of the evil one. Inthe final days there would be a battle between good and evil, evil would bevanquished and the world would be purified by a bath of molten metal. Mazda wouldthen judge the world, resurrecting the dead and His Kingdom would be established onearth.Zarathushtra's songs are called the "Gathas" which linguistically may be older thanthe Indian Vedic scriptures. The Gathas are written in an ancient Avestan dialect. Thisis a sister language to Sanskrit of India, and Greek and Latin of the West. The reasonis, the common ancestors (common to the ancient Iranians, Ancient Indians, Greeks,and Europeans) were one and the same - the Indo-European or Aryan peoples.Surprisingly, many so-called Christian concepts actually were derived fromZoroastrian Aryan ideas which thrived in Iran for thousands of years until the Arabinvasion of Iran around 1300 years ago.Concepts such as heaven and hell, God and the evil adversary ahriman, the coming of the Saviour or Saoshyant born of a virgin, the end-time purge of the world by Firefollowed by the resurrection of the dead , the making fresh of the world and the finalbattle between good and evil leading to the final defeat of evil. These beliefs filtereddown to Judaism during the reign of King Khushru (Cyrus) of Iran.Zoroastrians also believe that all races in the world are created by God and are equal- a true sign of the real ancient Aryan's nobility and tolerance. Cyrus, King of Iranwho was an Aryan rebuilt the temple of the Jews after freeing the Jews from Babylon- for this, he is still remembered by the Jews and called the "Anointed of the Lord" inthe Bible.

The Jews stillcelebrate that act of thetrue Aryans in afestival. Many Jewsthen stayed in Iranunder Cyrus and hissuccessors such asDarayus, as equalsubjects under theKing. Books of theBible written after thisstay have taken allthese Zoroastrianconcepts, from therethey came toChristianity and otherreligions. There arescholars who considerZoroastrianism as suchto be the motherreligion of the presentday world's faiths.In fact the edict of Cyrus proclaimingequality for all hissubjects is enshrined inthe United Nationstoday. The originalAryans were realymulticultural andtolerant of all races!So, it is probable thatthe Jews wereinfluenced by theZoroastrian faith of Iran in those days - andtook on the concepts of heaven/hell, God's eviladversary, theresurrection and thefinal purification of theworld - the virgin birth,the Saviour etc., allthese concepts beingZoroastrian. There areother similarities too -certain purificatory
