A Fire Urn and Fire Shrine

"One of the lessons that Zarathushtra teaches us is to pray towards the direction that the lights come from. So, for example, if you are in a dark room and there is a ray of light from somewhere in the room, you have to pray in that direction. That's why we kept that ritual which dates back before the time of Zarathushtra, and we keep the fire alive in our fire shrines."
