Ahura Mazda, the Zoroastrian god of the Persian Empire

Ahura Mazda-Işığın, saflığın, gerçeğin, iyiliğin ve bilginin karşısına karanlığı, kirliliği, yanlışı, acımasızlığı ve cehaleti koydular. Ahura Mazda’nın yararlı ve temiz hayvanlarına zıt olarak Ahriman, vahşi hayvanları ve kana susamış kuşları yarattı. İncitmeye hor görmeyi de ekledi ve kardeşinin yarattığı barış dolu ve zararsız varlıklara güldü.
