"Listen with your ears to the best things, reflect with a clear mind- man by man for himself..."
(Zarathustra's Gathas-Yasna 30-V.2)
Who We Are
We are a Zoroastrian non-profit organization spanning the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. We strive to spread love, peace, and brotherhood of mankind in our world through our joint practice of Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds. We value friendship and community, and we hope to share the peaceful teachings of our Prophet Zarathustra with younger generations and people of all backgrounds.
Zoroastrian Kids Camp
Every year the Desai family hosts a Zoroastrian Youth Camp. Kids from our own community and other Zoroastrian communities around the country attend the camp. These kids spend a week together learning about our religion, enjoying social activities, and forming lifelong friendships with their fellow Zoroastrians. If you are interested in having your kid(s) join us, please see the contact info at the end of the page.
Stay up to date on our events- all are welcome! Please feel free to contact us for more info.
