Iranian calendars

One of the longest chronological records in human history, the Iranian calendar has been modified time and again during its history to suit administrative, climatic, and religious purposes. History[edit] Ancient calendars[edit] Prayer, Zoroastrian. Ahura Mazda. Ahura Mazda (/əˌhʊrəˌmæzdə/;[1]), (also known as Ohrmazd, Ahuramazda, Hourmazd, Hormazd, and Hurmuz, Lord or simply as spirit) is the Avestan name for a higher spirit of the Old Iranian religion who was proclaimed as the uncreated spirit by Zoroaster, the founder of Zoroastrianism.

Ahura Mazda

Ahura Mazda is described as the highest spirit of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked spirit in the Yasna. The literal meaning of the word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom. Ahura Mazda first appeared in the Achaemenid period (c. 550 – 330 BCE) under Darius I's Behistun Inscription. Until Artaxerxes II (405–04 to 359–58 BCE), Ahura Mazda was worshiped and invoked alone. With Artaxerxes II, Ahura Mazda was invoked in a triad, with Mithra and Apam Napat.

Williams from La Revue Theosophique for February, 1890 reprinted from “Theosophical Siftings” Volume - 3 - [Page 14] THE Magus of Samaria is the first doctor of the Gnosis. His teaching contains the germ of that grand philosophy which we, towards the end of this nineteenth century, after an eclipse of several hundred years, recognise as the most perfect and luminous expression of the absolute. I say an eclipse, but in reality the Gnosis has never been without its disciples and its apostles. A sovereign interest draws us towards the high priest of Samaria. Zoroastrianism by Annie Besant.

Our President has truly said that in all the faiths of the world there is belief in such manifestations, and that ancient maxim as to truth — that which is as the hall mark on the silver showing that the metal is pure — that ancient maxim is here valid, that whatever has been believed everywhere, whatever has been believed at every time, and by every one, that is true, that is reality.
