Mythra, Zoroaster

It is unclear what the connection between these two beliefs is. It would appear that Mythra is the western version of this Persian religion. Adopted by Rome and the forerunner of both the Catholic and Masonic beliefs.       

Zoroastrian / Mazdaism

The date of Zoroaster, or, the date of composition of the Old Avestan gathas, is unknown. Scholarly mainstream opinion mostly places him near the 1200 BC or 1100 BC, but dates proposed in scholarly literature diverge widely, between the 1800 BC and 6000BC.

"Enlightenment writers such as Voltaire promoted research into Zoroastrianism in the belief that it was a form of rational Deism, preferable to Christianity. With the translation of the Avesta by Abraham Anquetil-Duperron, Western scholarship of Zoroastrianism began" 

Phrygian Cap

The Phrygian cap is a soft conical cap with the top pulled forward, associated in antiquity with several peoples in Eastern Europe and Anatolia, including Phrygia, Dacia, and the Balkans. In early modern Europe it came to signify freedom and the pursuit of liberty through a confusion with the pileus, the felt cap of manumitted (emancipated) slaves of ancient Rome. Accordingly, the Phrygian cap sometimes is called a liberty cap; in artistic representations it signifies freedom and the pursuit of liberty.

Zoroaster created Judeo Christian Religions

Zoroaster and Zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism and the dog

Dogs are given utmost importance in our religion. Sarosh Yasht Hadokht (karda 7), mentions "Pashush-harun" dog and reveals that just as this "dog" protects the other innocent, good creatures of Spenta Mainyu, Sarosh Yazata, similarly, protects us. Here, "dog" is compared to Sarosh Yazata! This "dog" therefore, is not just a dog in animal form, but its name "Pashush-harun" indicates that it is a mystic reference to "pasu" (life-atoms, seeds of consciousness); and "harun" or "haurva" indicates perfection and union with the Divine. This "dog", therefore, leads one to Sarosh Yazata who is Manthra Incarnate, Keeper of the Mysteries, Protector of Souls in Both the Worlds!

MITHRAISM AND ITS INFLUENCE UPON CHRISTIANITY.

The sacred books of Mazdaism, especially the Avesta, breathe the spirit of a lofty monotheism, which in the course of its further development was supplemented by the belief in a divine mediator, Mithra, born of a virgin and destined to be the ruler of the kingdom of God on earth, for the coming of which all good worshippers of Ahura Mazda were praying.

Mazdaism has on several occasions powerfully influenced the religious life of the Western world, first in the days of Cyrus, then in the time when the Apocrypha of the Old Testament were written, furthermore in the beginning of the Christian era when Mithraism became a rival of Christianity, and finally in its sectarian revival as Manicheism, after the suppression of which the very names of Ahura Mazda, of Zarathushtra, and of Mithra were forgotten. 

Mitra/Mithra

Justin Martyr LXXI: "And when those who record the mysteries of Mithras say that he was begotten of a rock, and call the place where those who believe in him are initiated a cave, do I not perceive here that the utterance of Daniel, that a stone without hands was cut out of a great mountain, has been imitated by them, and that they have attempted likewise to imitate the whole of Isaiah's words?"

Daniel 2:34: "While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them."
