About Zoroastrianism

Preserving the Zoroastrian Heritage

Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions, founded by the prophet Zoroaster (or Zarathustra) in ancient Persia around the 6th century BCE. It is characterized by the teachings outlined in the sacred text known as the Avesta. Central to Zoroastrianism is the belief in Ahura Mazda as the supreme and benevolent Lord, representing the principles of truth, order, and justice.

Zoroastrianism emphasizes the cosmic struggle between Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu (Ahriman), the force of evil and chaos. Followers are encouraged to lead a righteous life, promoting good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. Fire is a symbol of purity in Zoroastrian worship, and temples play a significant role in religious practices.

History of ZAGBA

Keeping the flame alive

In 1984, a small group of Zoroastrian families settled in the Boston area came together with a  shared common mission of preserving the religion, culture and heritage and passing it down to future generations. They signed a declaration in the dining room of one of its founding members and ZAGBA was officially born.

Ever since then, the number of Zoroastrian families in the Boston area have grown and today, ZAGBA is proud to have over 200 families as part of its membership. 

The goal remains the same- to pass a piece of our culture to the next generation and create a community of Zoroastrians.
