When shall Righteousness, Good Mind,
and the Divine Dominion hasten to me?
Wise One, do acknowledge, with Your discernment,
the order of the Great Fellowship.
God, help us now.
We look to Your kindness.
(Gathas: Song 2 – stanza 11)
Summary Substance: Satisfied, the World wishes for Righteousness, Good Mind,
and the Divine Dominion — all Principles of Life-to prevail. A new era has
dawned, and she wants God to bless the new order and recognize the Great
Fellowship being established by Zarathushtra.
Pondering Points: The Zarathushtrian Fellowship, based on the Principles of
Life, needs consideration, recognition, and promotion towards true happiness in
mind and body, spirit and matter.
(from “The Gathas, Our Guide,” translated and annotated by Ali A. Jafarey,
Cypress, California, USA, 1989)
