Description

The words of Zarathushtra, Prophet of Ancient Iran, have come down to us across the centuries through the Gathas, 17 hymns which he composed and which embody the core of his faith.

For the first time ever, these hymns are published with commentary and relevant illustrated material to explain the text. For the first time too, the background provided by the Story of Creation is examined with the help of a page from an unpublished manuscript at the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.

Vedic parallels are emphasised to aid compartive studies of these two ancient Aryan traditions.

An ideal book for laypersons and scholars alike, this is a must for every Parsi home, libraries and researchers working on Zoroastrian tradition.

About the Author

Piloo Nanavutty graduated from Girton College, Cambridge, and taught at the universities of Bombay and Delhi. She has travelled widely and lectured extensively on Zoroastrianism as well as the mystical tradition. Her published works include The Songs of Zarathustra, Fravarane and The Parsis.
