Encyclopedia of Zoroastrianism Avesta Farsi
The Avesta was the holy book of the ancient Iranians, collected and revived by Ardeshir Babakan while on the throne.
Zoroastrianism or Mazdayasna is one of the world’s oldest continuously practiced religions. It is a multi-faceted faith centered on a dualistic cosmology of good and evil and an eschatology predicting the ultimate conquest of evil with theological elements of henotheism, monotheism/monism, and polytheism. Parts of the Avesta have been written by many people in different eras, but only a part of the hymns is from Zarathustra himself. The writings of Avesta include the worship of Ahura Mazda and Amshaspandan and other gods and symbols of nature and human needs in the world of heaven and hell and national stories. It is said that after Alexander the Great set fire to the palace of the Persian Empire, he also burned the Avesta. Parthian Blash ordered the scattered Avesta to be collected from the cities of Iran.
