The concept of Aramaiti in Zoroastrianism

I think Sabahans simply cannot read this without smiling. Zoroastrianism is a religion and philosophy based on the teachings of prophet Zarathustra, and was formerly among the world’s largest religions. It was probably founded some time before the 6th century BCE in the eastern part of ancient Greater Iran.

That’s why I call the following is the Temple of Aramaiti – time to go pilgrimage there? Perhaps there are even american made church chairs inside

If you’re wondering, it’s the Zoroastrian Fire Temple at Yazd, Iran.

The links/coincidences are spellbinding:

The Gathas are hymns (“Aramaiti” in Sabah is usually associated with songs, therefore hymns) composed by Zarathusthra himself, and are the most sacred texts of the Zoroastrian faith.

In one of the Gathas, the Spenta Mainyu Gatha, a person of aramaiti is described as “…one who has allied his conception with good thinking…”

In another Gatha, the Vohu Xshathra Gatha, Zarathushtra wrote: “Virtuous is a man of aramaiti. He is so by reason of his understanding, his words, his action, his conception”

P.S. the initial fanfare (Sunrise) of Thus Spake Zarathustra by Richard Strauss (1896) is one of the most dramatic music of all time. Of course, listening to it, some people would immediately think of the movie 2001 : A Space Odyssey or even Ric Flair.
