Zarathustra – Founder of Zoroastrianism

Initiate of the Sacred Fire

Zarathustra is the founder of Zoroastrianism, one of the world's oldest religions.

Zarathustra Zoroastrianism Threefold Flame Advent PrayerZarathustra, its founder, was a prophet who spoke to his God face-to-face. The Greek name for Zarathustra is Zoroaster, meaning “Golden Star,” or “Golden Light.” He was one of the priest class who formulated mantras.

Zarathustra lived in a nonliterate society, whose people did not keep records. His teachings were passed down by oral tradition, and much of what was later written down about his life and teachings has been lost or destroyed.

However, much of what Zarathustra taught lives on in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

History of Zarathustra

It is believed that Zarathustra was born in what is now east central Iran, but that is not certain. Zarathustra's date of birth is even more difficult to establish. Scholars place it sometime between 1700 B.C. and 600 B.C. The consensus is that he lived around 1000 B.C. or earlier. The Gathas say that Zarathustra was of the Spitama family, a family of knights.

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 Zoroaster into the presence of Ahura Mazda and five other radiant figures, before whom ‘he did not see his own shadow upon the earth, owing to their great light'.”

Ahura Mazda means “Wise Lord.” Zarathustra recognized Ahura Mazda as the one true God, the Creator of the universe. Shortly after his first vision, Zarathustra became a spokesman for Ahura Mazda and began to proclaim his message. He instituted a religious reform that was far-reaching.

Zarathustra the Ascended Master

Zarathustra is an ascended master whose consciousness is 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 presence of Zarathustra is like being in the presence of the physical sun itself. The mastery he has of spiritual fire and physical fire is, if not the highest, among the highest of any adept ascended from this planet. If you want to keep the flame of Zarathustra, visualize him keeping the flame, the divine spark, in your own heart.

He is the greatest ‘firetender’ of them all, if you will. And when you call to him, remember that when you are engaged in the battle of Light and Darkness and you give your call for the binding of the forces of Antichrist, there is no greater devourer of the dark forces than Zarathustra himself.

Zarathustra's etheric retreat is patterned after the secret chamber of the heart, which is the place where the threefold flame burns on the altar of being. Zarathustra has said that we may be welcomed in his retreat when we have the necessary development of the heart.
