Zoroastrianism – A BBC Audio program

“Now have I seen him with my own eyes, knowing him in truth to be the wise Lord of the good mind and of good deeds and words.” Thus spoke Zarathustra, the prophet and founder of the ancient and modern religion of Zoroastrianism. It has claims to be the world’s first monotheistic creed and perhaps as long ago as 1200 BCE Zarathustra also said, “I point out the way, it is the truth, it is for all living”.

This traditional is central to more than one tradition, including Judaism.  Plato, Plotinus and Pythagoras sought out the Magi  who in turn are mentioned in the Christmas story  which occurred on one of the holiest days for the Zoroastrians.
