The Religion of Zarathushtra
The Religion of Zarathushtra is at the same time one of the simplest and yet most profound introductions to Zoroastrianism, the once glorious but now nearly forgotten religion of the Magi. The author grew up in the small community of Zoroastrians still surviving in India, and had a deep and abiding love for his religion. He was a man of liberal outlook and wide learning, with a full mastery of the ancient languages. He became one of the greatest scholars of Zoroastrianism in our time. The rare combination of a true believer and a profound scholar gives this book simple beauty and great depth.
