A questioner asked:I was reading about it from the wikipedia.
"Ahura Mazda's creation-evident as asha, truth and order-is the reorder of tumult, which is evident as druj, falsehood and chaos. The substantial boxing match involves the amount to design, by kindness, which has an brisk alcove to drop in the boxing match."
"Zoroastrianism (as well as bearing in mind Manicheism) may increasingly exercise converted elements of Buddhism, superfluous in specifications of light symbolism."
"Daena (din in modern Persian) is the eternal Law, whose order was revealed to kindness at some stage in the Mathra-Spenta ("Consecrated Words"). Daena has been recycled to mean religion, trust, law, and even as a summary for the Hindu and Buddhist confinement Dharma."
It seems Zoroastrianism may exercise a major regard in each Buddhism in Chinaas well as well as Judaism and Christianity in the west.
Mesmerizing stuff... Would be knowledgeable to grasp reflection from others :)
To me, it seems one and the same anybody requirements to say their own religion converted the others. It may be a ancient history truth that Zoroaster/Zarathustra was a seer in the time of 1400 BCE but to the grade that Zoroasterian themes abrade up in other cultural areas is not indicitative of cultural passage per se. I don't see any simple connect with Buddhism but offering is a carcass to be finished for specific cultural shield polliination and regard of Zoroasterian themes in the extension of Jusaism and Christianity.
The cultural archeology is sensational, but to me the psychological archeology is far choice enchanting. But for persons knowledgeable in the cultural anthropology, here's a bond for an sensational story about the Zoroastrian heredity of Judaism's monothesim and Paul's Mithraic depiction of Christianity as particular crucially an sacrilegious Christianity.
In my view, the sympathy of "light" as an image for "intention" transcends any choosy culture and is hopelessly creamy and crucial in the psyche/mind. I'm using the confinement "psyche/mind" to mean the Motive morally ("cittamatra") of the Lankavatara.
In other words, every culture gets the meaning of light as the envoy image for the core of our essence without any withstand to conceive of cultural passage. Relentless physics has come to the stop that "light" is the core of the design, that everything is stardust, and light is straight marginal way of saying energy which is the shake that is being.
From the Buddhist twist, the "obstacle" with the customary interpretation of Zoroastrianism (and all three of the a little religions of the Lavant that present to exercise been converted by Zoroastrianism) is that it does not escape the literalization of good and evil. The objectification of the arrangement of truth and falsehood is the post of the 6th and 7th consciousnesses working together to wadding the fail to disclose of the skillfully of basis. The interim that is along with shaped is a litter role-play that the fail to disclose can be reopened by a star of the good dull the evil. In fact the very benefaction in that interim is the assert of Mara having the status of that is an uninterrupted sound of boxing match with limitless regression. The self-glorification of kindness by positing a "special" alcove in that boxing match by playing the fundamental alcove of aiding the good to overcome the evil is the litter wishfulfillment of roleplaying.
But, that doesn't mean we must push out the childish person with the rinse water. Indoors every litter role-play is the take the stones out of of truth. Our yearning for "God" is having the status of intention longs to return to its skillfully. We drawing of "God" in monotheistic specifications having the status of basis is one mind--there is basis only--and this basis is the one true suchness as skillfully. Indoors the consciousness of kindness is the special aspect of self-consciousness open in the light itself. Humans exercise a special relationship with the design in particular ingenious to revive the fail to disclose of the 8th consciousness and look the alteration of wisdom. But it is not done by "good winning evil" in the insincere judgment of storytelling that posits one turn-off of the opposites can not working the other shaft of the duality, but in the intention itself that becomes conscious of the open unity of all opposites straight as light cannot apparent without the split of the wave featuring in a peak and a gather. Also the simple non-cognitive intention that the opposites of good and evil are the peak and gather of the shake of light itself, the Dharmakaya comes to conscious attainment in a self-less-consciousness and manifests the order that transcends the duality of the colorless and the unclean and realizes the goodness that transcends the duality of good and evil.
