Abstract

The Zoroastrian calendar reveals the wisdom of our ancestors. It reflects the ancient Iranian worldview, showing a sophisticated and mature perspective of interactions that recognizes reasoned decision-making as an essential condition for solving our human-made problems. Moreover, freedom of choice is essential in recognizing human agency when thoughtful people come together to deliberate about the best options for advancing the general welfare of all. By naming each of the 30 days of the month after a life-sustaining element (e.g., water, earth, air, fire, etc.) or attributes (e.g., truth, justice, trust, etc.) that are needed for good governance, we discover the recipe for socio-political enlightenment.
