Return to Edition 22

Stained glass replica of Prophet Zoroaster and a revered ancient Persian king. Note the fire urn in the center.

 

Prophet Zoroaster or Zarathushtra


Fire is used as a symbol of light in all temples. In San Jose,
due to fire restrictions, the big urn has gas lighting. During ceremonies, a sandalwood fire is used in the smaller urn.
