At the outset, please let me make clear that I am not seeking to convert and join some already existing Zoroastrian community. For many years now, I have studied the teachings of Zarathustra and kept the laws of the religion (including kusti). This is difficult for one not born into a Parsi or Irani fanily, but is not impossible. I have come to the conclusion that there are many non-Zoroastrians who would convert if they felt that was a realistic possiblility - if they felt they would not be instantly rejected by many (if not most) of those who are born Zoroastrians. I wonder now whether those who wish conversion shouldn't join themselves together and make their own community? I wonder if any of the visitors to this site feel the same.
