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.

With much gratitude to you for your kindness in helping to share the Knowledge given by Asho Zarathushtra and increase awareness of the Zoroastrian Faith in the World, so that we can achieve a Fellowship with All and with Nature.

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.
