Everyday life

The people of this faith live by the creed, 'Good Words, Good Thoughts, and Good Deeds'. They are initiated at the age of seven, after that they perform a ritual with prayers several times a day.

Purification

Purification is used a lot in Zoroastrian rituals. Zoroastrians focus on keeping their minds, bodies and environments pure in the quest to defeat the evil side of Zoroastrianism, Angra Mainyu. Fire is viewed as the supreme symbol of purity, and sacred fires are maintained in Fire Temples which are called Agiaries . The fires represent the light of their God, Ahura Mazda, and are never extinguished. No Zoroastrian ritual or ceremony is performed without a sacred fire.
