Zarathushtra Spitamas philosophy of life "Daena vanghui"

  From: Farishta.Dinshaw's facebook

Zarathushtra Spitama lived about 5,000 years ago. His philosophy of life is called "Daena vanghui", or good conscience, because he recognised that Ahura Mazda [Lord Wise] has endowed human beings with a powerful mind and the ability to distinguish what is right and what is wrong. It is up to us to choose between a progressive, creative mentality (spenta mainyu) and a regressive, negative mentality (angra mainyu). The other side of the coin, therefore, is responsibility for our own actions. Zarathushtra’s teachings were collected into five "gathas", or holy hymns, containing seventeen "Haiti" or songs. These hymns are in an ancient language called Avesta, which is no longer spoken, but is studied by scholars. Tradition says that there were more hymns, but they were destroyed later during various conquests by foreign armies. The core messages of Asho Zarathushtra’s teachings are summarised in the album. The most significant characteristic of Asho Zarathushtra’s message is its timelessness. It is valid today as when he first preached it. Since his message focuses on human attitude and behaviour, and is not dependent on geographical or historical context to be relevant, it is still practical. And, one does not have to be born of the faith to appreciate or practise Asho Zarathushtra’s extraordinary vision for a life of good conscience.
