Abstract: The great strength of the Zoroastrian faith is that it enjoins the caring of the physical worldnot merely to seek spiritual salvation, but because human beings, as the purposeful creation ofAhura Mazda, are seen as the natural motivators or overseers of the Seven Creations, namely,sky, water, earth, plants, animals, humans and fire. As the only conscious creation, humans have theultimate task of caring for the universe. The faith endorses the caring of Seven Creations, as part of asymbiotic relationship. Zoroastrianism sees the physical world as a natural matrix of Seven Creationsin which life and growth are interdependent if harmony and perfection are to be the final goal. Thisgoal is to be achieved by recreating the primeval unity of a perfect world, unpolluted and unsullied,as was first conceived by Ahura Mazda, the Wise Lord.
In the context of the Good Mind – Nurturing Nature our panelists will share their thoughts:
Khojeste, will highlight some principles, anchored in Zoroastrian doctrine and practice, that are foundational to sustainable development when harmony and perfections are to be the final goal.
Farrokh, will relate what Khojeste shares by way of natural matrix of the seven creations to UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and how these are put into practice by a Social Entrepreneur, Ashok Das, of SunMoksha in India.
