The Gathas, which are the divine songs of Zarathushtra,
comprise a very short selection of poems, which are the only remaining communications
attributed directly to Zarathushtra.
Scholars use a number of ways, including
linguistics, phonetics, as well as poetical and mystical compositions to translate these
poems, and effectively communicate the message of Zarathushtra..

particular order) which are translations or interpretations of the Gathas:
