Celebrating Zarathushtra's Birthday in Yazd

Fire is "important because it's a symbol of love, kindness, and warmth, and he [Zarathushtra] brought it into the religion, but we don't worship fire. We're not fire worshippers. We hold it in high esteem because of the symbols of warmth and love and friendship that it carries with itself, and when it is brought into our temple here, there is a warmth that's added to the lives of those who are sitting in the room."
