THE GUARDIAN SPIRIT - This icon is a fravashi, a "guardian spirit." The fravashi is different than, and separate from, the soul that incarnates in human flesh. It is the preexistent 'higher Self,' the eternal essence that is one with Ahura Mazda (the righteous God of Zoroastrianism). Believed to be the very nature of God within a person, the fravashi subtly guides the individual soul on its journey through this world.


This unique religion stems from ancient Persia and is based on the teachings of Zoroaster (630-550 B.C). Considered a prophet by his followers, he declared Ahura Mazda ("Wise Lord") to be the chief deity and God of light, opposed by Angra Mainyu, the God of Darkness. Both gods are self-existent, co-equal and able to create. Darius I, who reigned from 521 to 486 B.C., was probably the first Persian king to embrace Zoroastrianism. It was established as the state religion of Persia centuries later, from 224 to 641 A.D. Persia was eventually conquered by the Arabs and gradually converted to Islam during the seventh century A.D. Zoroastrianism was then suppressed, but still managed to survive. In India, Zoroastrians are called Parsis ("Persians"). Adherents revere fire as a symbol of the divine Presence. Their sacred Scripture is the Avesta.
