Promoting vitality within the Zoroastrian community and awareness in the wider world

At the Vakhshoori Foundation, we believe that each Zoroastrian can and should help shape our future. The smaller the community, the greater the responsibility and potential impact of each of its members. As Zoroastrians, we measure our achievement as a community by our positive contributions to humanity at large. We are motivated by our respect for all living things, and we seek to follow Zarathustra’s example in the Gathas:
All my actions I dedicate to Truth.
May the Wisdom of the Good Mind guide me.
