Format: Paperback
This is an interesting book. It is written by a Zoroastrian author, from India, and concerns the "history of the Aryan Race". The style is simplistic but effective, in the vein of epic sagas of the Indian variety. We get to follow a number of heroic characters (mainly manly men and fair ladies of various stripes), as they leave their home in the polar region to conquer the world. The book is based on a Zoroastrian world-view (according to which zoroastrianism, or rather the worship of Ahura Mazda, is the original Indo-European religion, though it has become diluted in both Europe and elsewhere), and as the wanderings of the Aryans continue, we finally end up in the area of Iran. Here Zoroaster/Zarathustra is born to restore the True Religion.

The intention of the book is to inspire pride in the author's fellow Zoroastrians. The communities of Parsis and Irani Zoroastrians are dwindling on a global scale due to low birthrates and intermarriage causing children to be raised outside the faith, as well as (I would guess) the severity of the Islamic repression in Iran, which has reduced the Zoroastrian population in Iran to a minimal fraction. This is probably one of the reasons why the book is so simple in style - while it is a really good read for an adult, it is not too complex to be understood even by children.

I can only wish Porus the best of luck in his struggle to maintain and restore his once-proud community to health. His book is an impressive effort to write a modern day spiritual epic.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In Iran and India, "Aryan" is the tribal forbearers of these modern nations, in the same way "Anglo-Saxons" are the tribal forbearers of the United States. This book, The Saga of the Aryan Race, seeks to flesh out this tribes story by connecting it to the ancient scriptures of the Zoroastrianism religion.

The book is a compilation of a series about the Aryans moving from their mythical home in the Arctic to Iran. They must survive against nature and savage man, carry out good marriages to preserve their people, and follow their religion.

What is striking is just how similar the Zoroastrian faith is to Christianity in many ways. The story is much like the early Puritan founders of Massachusetts Bay Colony. One wonders if Indo-European expansion across the globe has been carried out by means of a common pattern.

The book is best read and understood by a person familiar with Zoroastrian ideas.
