Hi lads,

There was a Zoroastrianism thread a couple of days ago asking what it meant to be Zoroastrian. Someone had written several sentences that I completely forgot to save.. It included something about gluttony and just general values. It was pretty well written. Does anyone remember what it was?
>>
Are you talking about this?

To ride, shoot straight and speak the truth
Moderation in worldly pleasures, both celibacy and lechery, gluttony and temperance is not encouraged
Charity and love for all human beings
Industry and honest toil
Forgiveness, mercy and tolerance

Arrogance, greed, petty quarrels, wrath and jealousy are discouraged

Wwhy don't they accept converts? I image they would attract ton of people with this, combined with the fact how old they are.
>>
>>586257

I am pretty sure they do. In Iran right now large amounts of people are converting.

Are they? I read somewhere they don't. That's great anyway.

I'm pretty sure its just the old people and the farm folk that are still heavy muslims.
Most city folk don't seem to give much of a fuck, and a lot of the Zoroastrian teaching and stuff are in-twined with Iranian culture.

t: someone who visited Iran for a week last year.

>>586257
Mainstream Zoroastrians accept converts.

Thing is that the more numerous offshoot called Parsis do not. The Indian king who let them stay with him made a law that they cannot spread their faith or compete with mainstream Hinduism.

Kurds, Pashtuns, and other folks convert all the time.

>>
>>583710
What parts of the Avesta should I read to get a basic understanding of Zoroastrianism?

Also, are there any good biographies about Zoroaster/Zarathustra?
>>
>>583731
I wrote the post quoted in >>583719, this was my source
http://tenets.zoroastrianism.com/deen33i.html plus the Herodotus quote which was admittedly not hugely relevant but its a great sentence anyway
