The Gāthās, the early hymns, many of which may have been written by Zarathustra, are eschatological (concerned with last things). Almost every passage contains some reference to the fate awaiting individuals in the afterlife. Each act, speech, and thought is viewed as being related to an existence after death.

He is mentioned sixteen times in the Gāthās, which are largely texts of traditional ritual poetry and should be interpreted as such. Zarathustra is mentioned one time in each gāθā at the head of a group of human beings.

GĀTHĀS The hymns of zoroaster preserved as part of the Avesta, are short poems, comparable to those of the Rig-Veda in India.

Source for information on Gāthās. The Avesta is in five parts. Its religious core is a collection of songs or hymns, the Gāthās, thought to be in the main the very words of Zoroaster.

They form a middle section of the chief liturgical part of the canon, the Yasna, which contains the rite of the preparation and sacrifice of haoma. The Visp-rat is a lesser liturgical scripture, containing homages to a number of. Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen, also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts written and published between and Much of the work deals with ideas such as the "eternal recurrence of the Author: Friedrich Nietzsche.

Zoroaster (Greek Ζωροάστρης, Zōroastrēs) or Zarathustra (Avestan: Zaraθuštra), also referred to as Zartosht (Persian زرتشت), was an ancient Iranian prophet and the founder of Zoroastrianism, a religion that was the national religion of the Sassanian Empire of Persia; it is predominantly practiced today by the Parsi community of India.

In his The Gāthās of Zarathustra, Insler used his introductions to each of the hymns, among other matters, to emphasize the moral and ethical character of Zoroaster’s thought neglected in the ritualist approach.

While it is true that all modern translators have made use of comparative materials from the Vedas, Insler, an outstanding.

the gĀthĀs for piano This exposition represents a series of piano compositions of which the rhythmic structure is derived and developed from the language of Zarathustra's homonymous book of poems (The Gāthās), Gāthic or Old Avestan which belongs to the ancient Iranian language group that is a sub-group of Eastern families of the Indo.

The Gathas (/ ˈ ɡ ɑː t ə z,-t ɑː z /) are 17 Avestan hymns believed to have been composed by Zarathushtra (Zoroaster) himself. They form the core of the Zoroastrian liturgy (the Yasna).They are arranged in five different modes or metres.

The Avestan term gāθā (𐬔𐬁𐬚𐬁 "hymn", but also "mode, metre") is cognate with Sanskrit gāthā (गाथा), both from the Proto-Indo. The Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy considers Zoroaster to have been the first philosopher.

Zoroaster has also been described as the father of ethics, the first rationalist and the first monotheist (having belief in just one God) as well as the first to articulate the notions of heaven and hell, judgment after death and free will.

The Gathas, consist of seventeen hymns composed by the great poet-prophet Zarathushtra around BC. They are arranged into five groups based on their meter: Ahunavaiti Gatha (Y28, Y29, Y30, Y31, Y32, Y33, Y34) Ushtavaiti Gatha (Y43, Y44, Y45, Y46) Spentamainyush Gatha (Y47, Y48, Y49, Y50) Vohukhshathra.

There was a time when the philosophy of oneness, one entity and one universal power emerged out of the polytheistic teachings. The Persian words goftare nik, pendare nik, kerdare nik meaning good words, good thoughts, good deeds became the main keystones of the religion called Zoroastrianism.

; see AHUNWAR) and the Aṧəm vohū (q.v., Y. ), and by the Yeŋ́hē hātąm prayer (Y. ), which has come down to us not in Old Avestan but in archaized .The premise of the book is Zarathustra's (and Zoroastrian) philosophy having had an impact on the modern Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

As a non-religious person myself, I found it fascinating and plausible the way the author links ancient Zoroastrian teachings with the development of modern faith traditions/5.

The Gāthās alone within the Avesta make claim to be the ipsissima verba of the prophet; in the rest of that work they are put into Zoroaster's own mouth (Yasna, 9, 1) and are expressly called “the Gāthās of the holy Zoroaster” (Yasna, 57, 8).

The litanies of the Yasna, and the Yashts, refer to him as a personage belonging to the past.
