Ahuramazda

Ahuramazda

(Wise Spirit) was the great and beneficent creator of good in the Zendic mythology'. He was called also " The Good Spirit," and he has been considered as in some points resembling the Assyrian deity Merodach. The world was created by him for the residence of mankind, and all the good angels were made by him also. His chief mission, however, was to preserve the human race and to defeat the evil being, Ahriman. His name is often contracted into Ormud (q.v.).
