Many months ago, my daughter gave me an idea to start with my own blog. Today on Meher Roj, Shehrevar Mah, 1386 Yz (29th January 2017), with her assistance, I have started “Karl’s Blog”! Periodically, I hope to publish articles here, which may be of interest to all.
The purpose of this blog is to highlight the kernels of Zoroastrian history, art, culture and its people. Being the first revealed religion, Zoroastrianism has influenced not only Judaism but also Christianity and Islam. It’s ancestral language, Avestan, shares many commonalities with the Indo-Aryan Sanskrit text, the language of the Rig Veda.
Amongst other things, this blog aims to bring to its readers not only the lost glory of the Achaemenian, Parthian and Sassanian dynasties, but also the philosophy behind them.
It is only when we know who we are and where we came from, that we can appreciate this invaluable heritage that we have inherited. A heritage which if frittered away would make not only Zoroastrianism, but the entire world a poorer place. We would then have to wait. Wait to live… wait to die… wait for an absolution which would never come!
