Ancient Wisdoms: Mithraism, Zoroastrianism, and our Cultural Roots
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PSTFree
Mithrasim, Zoroastrianism, and our cultural roots
The roots of mystical thinking were found in ancient Iran. The philosophy of Iranian mysticism by nature fosters adoption of other cultures. It is not based on a single source but is based on many, and that philosophy traveled to emerge among many civilizations.
Many of today’s modern holidays, festivals, religious traditions, dance, and even children’s fairy tales or Hollywood movies have been based upon the myths and beliefs of the ancient Persian religions of Mithraism and Zoroastrianism. This lecture by Farima reveals some of the mysteries of these religions and how they shaped our modern culture, beliefs, and traditions.
