A Happy New Year to all of you! Welcome to the Frashogard blog!
I propose to make occasional comments on various interesting Zarathusthrian facts – small posts which may not merit a whole article, but which contain important details about our religion.
I shall also take a critical look a the current way in which we practice our religion, and compare it with the correct practice. This serves two purposes – not only do we analyse and understand why we follow certain practices, we also realise how far removed we are from the original Zarathushtrian ideal. Once we see the wide gap, we can make conscious efforts to go back to the original tradition.
In this process you will see how some very ‘fashionable’ current practices of our religion are actually totally anti-Zarathushtrian! The intention is not to hurt anyone’s feelings, but to try and point out the reality and to separate fact from fiction.
I welcome you to go through these posts and leave your critical yet valuable feedback. The more interactive this becomes, the more we all benefit. Thank you.
