Excerpt from A Modern Zoroastrian Surely, I thought, here is a case in which the Professor must have thrown down the Review when he came to these words: but when I came to the end, I found that it was not the Review, but the pen, which must have been thrown down, for the article is signed T. Huxley. Can there be a more conclusive proof that there are a vast variety of facts out side of magnetism and electricity, connected by an under lying idea, which inevitably suggests analogy to them, and which can be most conveniently expressed by the word polarity Words after all are only coins to facili tate the interchange of ideas, and the best word is that which serves the purpose most clearly and concisely. Thus instead of using a waggon load of copper, or the verbiage of a conveyancer's deed, to express the ideas comprised in such words as theism, pantheism, or agnosticism, we coin them for general use, as Huxley did the word agnosticism, in order to convey our meaning. Polarity is such a word. It sums up what Emer son says in his Essay on Compensation Polarity, or action and reaction, we meet in every part of Nature in darkness and light; in the ebb and flow of waters in male and female; in the inspiration and expiration of plants and animals in the undulations of fluids and of sound; in the centripetal and centrifugal gravity; in electricity, galvanism, and chemical affinity. Super induce Magnetism at one end of a needle, the opposite Magnetism takes place at the other end. If the South attracts, the North repels. An inevitable dualism besets nature, so that each thing is a half, and suggests another to make it whole: as Spirit, matter; man, woman; odd, even; subjective, objective; in, out; upper, under; motion, rest; yea, nay.

The Zoroastrian Flame

This authoritative volume brings together internationally recognised scholars to explore Zoroastrianism in all its rich complexity.

For many centuries, from the birth of the religion late in the second millennium BC to its influence on the Achaemenids and later adoption in the third century AD as the state religion of the Sasanian Empire, it enjoyed imperial patronage and profoundly shaped the culture of antiquity. The Magi of the New Testament most probably were Zoroastrian priests from the Iranian world, while the enigmatic figure of Zarathushtra (or Zoroaster) himself has exerted continual fascination in the West, influencing creative artists as diverse as Voltaire, Nietzsche, Mozart and Yeats. This authoritative volume brings together internationally recognised scholars to explore Zoroastrianism in all its rich complexity. Examining key themes such as history and modernity, tradition and scripture, art and architecture and minority status and religious identity, it places the modern Zoroastrians of Iran, and the Parsis of India, in their proper contexts. The book extends and complements the coverage of its companion volume, The Everlasting Flame.

Samuel Laing (1812-97) was a British railway administrator, politician, and writer on science and religion during the Victorian era. After graduating from St John's College, Cambridge in 1827 he was elected a fellow and remained as a coach before being called to the bar in 1837. After serving as private secretary to the President of the Board of Trade in 1842 he was made secretary to the railway department, retaining the post until 1847 by which time he had become an authority on railways, and in 1848 was appointed chairman and managing director of the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway. He first entered Parliament in 1852, and over the following years served in various roles, including Financial Secretary to the Treasury and finance minister in India, before returning to positions within the railways. In later life he became well known as an author on scientific subjects, showing a positive attitude towards new developments in science and offering an optimistic vision of progressive modernity. He also wrote on religion and in A Modern Zoroastrian (1888) he argued that the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism was more consistent with modern scientific thought than was traditional Christianity. Reprinted from the edition of 1893 which includes several diagrams.

Zoroastrianism might be a fast-declining religion in today’s world, but what is remarkable is its eternal enigma. It is hard to believe that the hymns of the faith have travelled down to us in accurate form and poetic metre, purely through the memory of generations of priests. Zarathustra, the founder of the faith, belonged to a period of Persian history which antedated the Achaemenid dynasty (from 550 BC to 330 BC). He followed the old Rigvedic religion until he was the first to receive a revelation from Almighty God. The Gathas—the most sacred text of the Zoroastrian faith—were first composed and sung by Prophet Zarathustra. Along with the complete comprehension of the Gathas, consisting 238 verses in the same language as the Rigveda, this book is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the purpose of life on earth and what happens to mankind after death. The Gathas are extremely relevant in modern times for the fundamental reason that they are timeless. They do not emanate from Prophet Zarathustra’s mind, but are revelations from Almighty God, making them universal in their approach. This book is an attempt to help the reader fully comprehend these and choose the path of leading a righteous life.
