'Zoroastrianism' Chapter

Zoroastrianism

The oldest revealed doctrine religion on the planet. The world has two divine beings, Ahura Mazda, the source of all good, and Ahriman, the source of all evil.

“Turn yourself not away from three best things: Good Thought, Good Word, and Good Deed.” Zoroaster
