When I wished to tell the story of Zarathushtra to my grandsons Mishal, Ayaan
and Armaan, I could not find material that was simple enough for them to
understand and enjoy.
Therefore, I decided to write and illustrate this book for them and for children
of all faiths to enjoy the wonderful story of the first Prophet on earth.

preached three positive principles:
Mrs. Kety DadyBurjor has penned this book on the life of Prophet Zarathushtra.
This book has been aimed at young children and has been written in the form
presently popular with them. The language used is simple, with effective
illustrations that not only draw the attention of the young minds but also help
children grasp the correct understanding of the life of our Prophet Zarathushtra.
A young child’s mind is very perceptive like a sponge. Therefore, it is very

A group of Aryans settled in ancient Iran about 9,500 years ago. They were
spiritually enlightened. They practised a religion called the Mazdayasni Din
which worshipped good and hated evil. Amongst them was a group called the
Devasyasnis, whose belief in good was not central to their existence. Out of
fear and superstition they worshipped other deities, some of whom were evil.
To become powerful, they offered blood sacrifices to please these evil gods.
Slowly the Mazdayasnis were dominated by the evil Devasyasnis, who were
ageressive and violent. Being a peaceful and spiritual people, the Mazdayasnis
did not know how to retaliate. At their wits end, they prayed to their Creator
to send them a saviour to rid the world of the evils spread by the Devasyasnis.
Ahura Mazda heard their prayers, and with his council of Amesha Spentas and
Yazads (arch angels and angels) decided to send them Zarathushtra, the divine
child. Zarathushtra would grow up to be Ahura Mazda’s divinely appointed
Ratu or spiritual messenger, and conquer evil. He would also enlighten the
world about Ahura Mazda, the One True God.
Thus Zarathushtra was born. He was the first Prophet on earth.
