Concept Of God In Zoroastrianism (Parsis) | Minbar Al-Tawhid

CONCEPT OF GOD IN ZOROASTRIANISM (PARSIS)


God in Zoroastrianism is known as ‘Ahura Mazda’. ‘Ahura’ means ‘the Lord’ or 'The Master' and ‘Mazda’ means ‘the Wise’; hence ‘Ahura Mazda’ means ‘the Wise Lord’ or ‘the Wise God’. Ahura Mazda stands for God, in a strictly monotheistic sense.

Qualities of God according to the Dasatir:

According to the Dasatir, Ahura Mazda has the following qualities:

· He is One.

· He is without an origin or end.

· He has no father or mother, wife or son.

· He is without a body or form.

· Nothing resembles Him.

· Neither the eye can behold Him, nor the power of thinking can conceive him.

· He is above all that you can imagine.

· He is nearer to you than your own self.

Qualities of God according to Avesta
According to the Avesta, the Gathas and the Yasna give various characteristics to Ahura Mazda such as:

Creator


Yasna 31:7 & 11
Yasna 44:7
Yasna 50:11
Yasna 51:7

Spenta;
Yasna 43:4,5,7,9,11,13,15
Yasna 44:2
Yasna 45:5
Yasna 46:9
Yasna 48:3

Thus, in Zoroastrianism too, we find a concept of an eternal, omnipotent God. Several verses of Yasna praise the Lord as a Bountiful Creator.
