In 1993, I was able to get an audience with then U.S. congressman Ed Royce to provide him the evidence of copious mention of Cyrus the Great and The Achaemenian Dynasty in the Old Bible as the “anointed one of God,” pioneering the first Human rights in History. Based on that evidence the Hon. Congressman, after due process, was very pleased to issue a Proclamation which stated “The immense and timeless contribution of the Zoroastrian community to Human Rights, Democracy, History and Civilization.” He was also pleased to forward “The Dawn of consciousness,” a video made by Silloo Mehta, on basic understanding of the Zoroastrian religion, to the Library of Congress. It was readily accepted and placed in the Congress Library by the Chief Librarian. I was also appointed to the Hon. Congressman’s advisory sub-committee on Human rights and South-East Asia following the 9/11 tragedy in 2001.


  • Zoroastrianism stands for Freedom Equality, treatment of humans with respect humility understanding dignity
    As per Cyrus Cylinder: treat people the way you liked to be treated. Not like a slave to poked & prodded waiting to be bought..

    This is the most interesting of all the three Timeless Zoroastrian Legacy webinars presented by Mr. Sam Billimoria. I encourage all Zoroastrians living in USA & Canada and India to at least watch the third presentation.
