‘KEMNA MAZDA (Transliteration already given during kushti prayers)


Mazdayasni simply means the worship of or devotion to wisdom. The religion of Zoroaster in middle Persian was known as ‘Behdin’ or ‘good religion’. Hence the word ‘Behdinan’ means ‘adherents of the Zoroastrian religion’.

The religion exalts wisdom. The name given to the highest divinity is ‘Ahura Mazda’. ‘Ahura’ meaning ‘Being’ and ‘Mazda’ meaning ‘knowledge/wisdom’; the highest divinity in Zoroaster’s religion is therefore, not a personified creator but the intangible being made up of the energies of wisdom. ‘Ahu’ is often translated as ‘Lord’ ‘High Being’, a meaning deduced from the original meaning of ‘Ahu’, ‘a life-giving force’; ‘Mazda’ translated as the supreme intelligence/intellect/wisdom.

Zoroaster attributes this supreme entity with both a mind and a being which are immanent; meaning inherent and indwelling within the divinity itself leading to the belief in a universe that is immanently conscious and self-creating.

However, while this being, Ahura Mazda, the creative mind/principle, is Almighty, but He is not omnipotent; there also exists Ahriman (the destructive mind/principle), who is finally defeated before the end of time and wisdom, the pure and good mind, alone exists thereafter. On Ahriman’s defeat time will end and the Cosmos — including the dark souls – will be renewed and reunite in Ahura Mazda.

Thus the religion has a duality in its cosmogony (how the cosmos/universe


originated), but a monotheism in its eschatology (the part of theology which speaks of the final destiny of the world and humankind). This makes Zoroaster’s religion unique amongst the religions of the world.

The creation emanating from Ahura Mazda is ‘Asha’ (eternal order); that from Ahriman is ‘Druj’ (chaos). Humanity and all Universe have a duty to actively resolve the conflict between Asha and Druj and rise in wisdom and purity. According to Zoroastrian beliefs, Ahura Mazda , patently  made clear His ultimate triumph over Ahriman by the enunciating the “Ahuna Vairyo” (Yasna 19: “this utterance is a thing of such a nature, that if all the corporeal and living world should learn it, and learning hold fast by it, they would be redeemed from their mortality.”). The primordial sound, pronounced by Ahura Mazda before the universe manifested itself but after the emergence of the unmanifest, is the ‘Ahuna Vairyo’. It is ascribed with ‘talismanic virtues’ to destroy evil and ‘a most sacred gift’ and ‘healing recitation’ to assist mankind in distress.

Wisdom is immanent in the Universe and in mankind; through it, the self creating wisdom interacts with its created facet. During the temporary state of life manifest, the religion enjoins a duty upon the Universe, including mankind, to actively combat chaos (Ahriman and Angre Mainyu) by performing good deeds and ensuring happiness. This duty of conscious and voluntary participation by Zoroastrians in the war of good versus evil is pertinent to the idea of Free Will in Zoroaster’s teachings; Zoroastrianism abjures any form of monasticism.
