Who is Zarathustra?

Zarathustra, founder of Zoroastrianism, was a prophet who spoke to his God face to face. His teachings were passed down by oral tradition. It is believed that he may have been born in what is now east central Iran. Scholars place his birth between 1700 B.C. and 600 B.C.

Tradition holds that at the age of twenty, Zarathustra left his father, mother and wife to wander in search of Truth. Ten years later he had the first of many visions. "He saw on the bank a shining being, who revealed himself as Vohu Manah 'Good Purpose'; and this being led him into the presence of Ahura Mazda and five other figures, before whom 'he did not see his own shadow upon the earth, owing to their great light'." Zarathustra recognized Ahura Mazda as the one true God, the Creator of the universe. Much of what Zarathustra taught lives on in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Today Zarathustra is an ascended master whose consciousness bears an auric emanation of fire that is an all-consuming love, a piercing light that goes to the core of whatever is unreal. Being in the his presence is like being in the presence of the physical sun itself. If you want to keep the flame of Zarathustra, visualize him keeping the flame, the divine spark, in your heart.
