Zoroastrianism and Sustainable Development – Webinar

Saturday, 10 Dec 2022 

NAMC Zoom meeting ID: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82165047814

This is one of a series of classes of a course on “Ecology in Zoroastrianism” offered by NAMC Institute of Zoroastrian Studies.

2 PM EST / 7:00PM London 

Zoroastrianism and Sustainable Development 

Khojeste P. Mistree, Farrokh Mistree, Karishma Koka 

The Good Mind Nurturing Nature – A Zoroastrian Perspective on Sustainable Development 

Abstract: The great strength of the Zoroastrian faith is that it enjoins the caring of the physical world not merely to seek spiritual salvation, but because human beings, as the purposeful creation of Ahura 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 the ultimate task of caring for the universe. The faith endorses the caring of Seven Creations, as part of a symbiotic relationship. Zoroastrianism sees the physical world as a natural matrix of Seven Creations in which life and growth are interdependent if harmony and perfection are to be the final goal. This goal 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.

Khojeste, in this webinar, 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, in this webinar, 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.

Karishma will synthesise the principles that Khojeste and Farrokh present.

This concept was first presented online on 25 July 2021 and then at the Parliaments of The World’s Religions in 2021. The Good Mind Nurturing Nature A Zoroastrian Perspective on Sustainable Development is a webinar series set up by Dr. Karishma Koka and Mr. Yazdi Tantra.

About the SSZ.  The Society of Scholars of Zoroastrianism (SSZ) is an initiative to promote study and scholarship of the Religion of Zarathushtra.  The mission of the Society is to revive the tradition of scholarship within our community among athornans and behdins alike, and to promote interaction among academicians, theologians (priests), educationists, lay scholars and practitioners of Zoroastrianism, through roundtable discussions, conferences and publications.

History of SSZ Conferences.
  SSZ Conferences have been held since 2006, when noted scholars and students present their research papers.  To encourage Zoroastrian studies within the community, these SSZ conferences also include sessions delivered by community members, especially the next-generation. Persons/Associations interested in the mission and vision of the Society of Scholars of Zoroastrianism, are invited to host future Conferences in their areas.  The organizers enjoy complete autonomy in regard to programming and organizing the Conference.

All community members, students, scholars and members of interfaith communities are invited and encouraged to participate.  Your presence gives support to the speakers, and your feedback is invaluable so that future research efforts may be directed in a constructive manner for the benefit of both the academicians as well as the community.
