THE FIRST PART OF THIS ARTICLE WAS POSTED YESTERDAY UNDER THE TITLE “ TAMIL WITCHCRAFT IS 3000 YEAR OLD! FIVE MIRACLES OF ZOROASTER!!

THIS IS THE SECOND PART:–

Vishtaspa’s favourite horse Aspa Siha (Black Horse) was rolling on the ground in agony as his four legs disappeared into his stomach. Not all the medicine men of the land could cure him.

Zarathustra /Zoroaster heard this story from the keeper of the dungeon and offered to cure the sick horse. Permission was granted. After bathing, putting on clean clothes and saying his prayers, Zarathushtra  presented himself in the courtroom.

Before he would cure the horse,  Zarathushtra  laid down four conditions. The first was that Vishtaspa  should embrace the new doctrine. Vishtaspa agreed. Then the prophet stroked the right leg of the sick horse reciting certain prayers. Immediately the leg straightened and shot out.

The second condition was that , Zarathushtra  be taken to the chambers of Queen Hutoxshi to whom he would explain the new faith and if she is convinced of its truth, she should embrace it.  Permission was granted. Zarathushtra convinced the queen who gladly accepted the new faith . Zarathushtra returned to the court where he stroked the left leg of the horse reciting his prayers. That leg too straightened and shot out. The Prophet’s third condition was that the Crown Prince Asfandiar , be asked to swear on his sword that he would accept the new faith and spread it throughout the land and beyond. The prince agreed. The third leg shot out as , Zarathushtra stroked and recited certain prayers.

His last request was that the innkeeper be summoned and made to swear , on pain of death, to tell the truth as to how the putrid matter came to be under the pillow of the Prophet . The innkeeper was summoned and he confessed the truth, pointing out  those courtiers responsible for the act. Vishtaspa ordered the guilty courtiers to be beheaded, but Zarathushtra pleaded that they should be banished instead as that would be punishment enough.  And so they were led out from the gates of the city to fend for themselves. The horse Aspa Siha was completely cured.

My Comments

This miracle is similar to the miracle done by Tamil Boy Wonder Thiru Jnana Sambandar who straightened the back of great Pandya king in Madurai (Tamil Nadu, India), who was a hunch back and suffering from severe stomach pain. Young little boy Sambandar cured him with holy ash and Tamil Mantra.

Hutokshi is Suddha Akshi = Good Eye in Sanskrit. Even Tamil Sangam literature has a poet wit that name Nakkannai= Good Eye; we have Sulochana= Good Eye , a common name for girls.

One day , when travelling on a wintry road, he was refused hospitality by the favourite of a prince.  For this he bears him a grudge , and he predicts his punishment on the day of judgement, when the good will be sorted out from the wicked.

Zarathushtra married three times and had 3 daughters and three sons. At the age of 77, he was murdered by a hostile border chief Tur- bara- Tur.

Zend Avesta and Zarathustra’s life have lot of Sanskrit names. The Parsees or Zoroastrians led a life like brahmins worshipping Fire every day. They wore sacred threads like brahmins. They worshipped Varuna as the supreme god instead of Indra. They praised Asuras instead of Devas. Probably he was a revolutionary against the established Vedic order. But there are common Gods between the two religions.
