Parsee Cluster – Profile
  • The Parsees follow the Zorastrian religion, an ancient Iranian religion and a religious philosophy founded by Zoroaster a few hundred years before Christ.
  • Zoroaster's philosophy was that the essence of human existence was the struggle between truth and untruth. The purpose of humankind, and all of creation, is to sustain truth.
  • A fire temple is the place of worship for Zoroastrians. Zoroastrians revere fire in any form. Fire, together with clean water, are agents of ritual purity. The Zoroastrian cult of fire is much younger than Zoroastrianism itself.
  • Ancestor worship is an emphasized aspect of worship. Pictures of deceased loved ones hang in homes and are prayed and bowed to. Parsees respect other faith systems and gods. The Bible is treated honorably as a religious text and Christ is also seen in a positive light.
