ZORRO IS ZOROASTER
Zoroastrian Follower of the religious doctrines originally spread in Persia by Zarathustra - also known as Zoroaster - in the 6th century BC. Zoroatrians believe that the world is the site of a cosmic battle that is continually raging between good and evil, with man free to choose between the two. Eventually the good god and creator Ahura Mazda, the Wise Lord, will defeat the power of evil personified of Ahriman. The Zoroastrian scriptures, the Avesta, contain the Ahura Vairya, their most sacred prayer, and relate the creation history of the world as a drama divided into four periods of 3000 years each.
Zoroastrianism was the state religion in Persia under the Sassanian dynasty (3rd-7th century AD), but an Islamic invasion in 642 resulted in the persecution and emigration of believers. Isolated groups survived there, but the focus of emigration was Gujerat, India where the new cult flourished due to Hindu toleration. There Zoroastrians became known as Parsees (from the Persian parsi, ‘Persian’). Characteristic religious practices include the preservation of the sacred fire, and disposal of the dead by exposure on ‘towers of silence’.
