If you get the chance, I would recommend that you visit the Zoroastrian temples in California och Texas.
I personally enjoy the MINIMALIST AESTHETICS found everywhere in Zoroastrian temples and meeting rooms. It is similar to the Zen aesthetics in China and Japan. No fuss, just very straight-forward arrangements, very much focused on stimulating the mind in the right direction without distortions and unnecessary decorations. Surprisingly different from both Islamic and Hinduist aesthetics. And the atash bahrams with their fires are wonderful and very stimulating for contemplation, which is exactly the idea.
Alexander/also grateful for the pictures here at Ushta...
Thank you so much for these pics, and for all your input and conversation. Out here in the middle of Oklahoma, I don't get to see any Zoroastrianism in practice, so pics like these are all I have to get any idea of what Mazdayasna looks like when practiced by people who have been doing it for thousands of years. Ahura Mazda's blessings on you and the people of Iran in this difficult time in your history. We're all praying for you!
