This interview enlightens humanity by sharing:
Even if you’re not a Zoroastrian, your religion (if you have one) wouldn’t be the same without it. It’s one of the world’s oldest traditions, predating Islam, Christianity and even Judaism.
Zoroastrians introduced many of the religious concepts we know today, like angels and demons, belief in one God, and the idea of a final judgment day.
With the Zoroastrian New Year Nowruz approaching, Zoroastrian Deena Guzder joins us with more about the holiday and this ancient, vibrant faith.
