By A Customer on February 11, 2000
Format: Paperback
The term "Parsi" originates from "Pars". Pars means Persia. Therefore "Parsi" means "Persian", and is applicable to a native and to the language. There is no "P" or "pay" sound in Arabic. It is replaced by "F" or "Fay". So when the Arabs over-ran Pars, the area came to be known as "Fars", and the language came to be known as "Frasi" and the inhabitants were called "Farsis" or "Pharasees" as in the old testament. Therefore, Parsism is not a religion, or a creed. Zoroastrians from India like to call themselves "Parsis", without understanding its true meaning and to differentiate themselves from the "locals". In fact there is no movement known as Parsism. The closest one can come to that term is when die-hard Zoroastrians from India have tried to form their own version of this simple religion, and to add insult to injury have called it "orthodox". If that's the case, then yes, Parsism is a different form of the true Zoroastrian faith practiced in Iran today.
