Arch rationalist or scientist with ancient Iranians spiritual core?
Albert Einstein the year before his death was sold for the staggering amount of $404,000 at an auction in London on May 16, 2008. The letter which is handwritten in German to philosopher Eric Gutkind in January 1954, at the age of 74, while he was living in Princeton in the US. suggests his views on religion did not mellow with age. Einstein, who helped unravel the mysteries of the universe with his theory of relativity, expressed complex and arguably contradictory views on faith, perceiving a universe suffused with spirituality while rejecting organized religion. He states in the letter, for example, “The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.” And, although from a Jewish background, he writes, “For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people.”
Ironically, more than 5000 years ago ancient Iranian's religious conviction was based on knowledge and wisdom. Zartosht (Zarathustra), the greatest Iranian teacher and philosopher was a messenger of peace and life, eternal love and wisdom. Zartosht who believed that there is some kind of intelligence (Ahura Mazda) working its way through nature based his philosophy on Good Deeds, Good Thoughts and Good Words. He united ancient Iranians into a way of life that guided them to glorious time of prosperity and happiness for centuries (Persian Empire). Zartosht was a great Iranian spiritual leader of profound and lasting significance. "If only Iranians had adhered to Zartosht's principles Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds, Iran would have remained eternally prosperous and exalted."
The greatest gift to Iran's future is connection to her past!
It is time
for IRANIANS to be True IRANIAN
