Zorvanism in Mysticism
Hamid Reza Ardestani Rostami *
Abstract:   (2067 Views)

Zorvanism was one of the common religions in ancient Iran. Considering Ahuramazda and Ahriman, some Iranian came to the conclusion that zorvan was their father in heavens. This idea came to Islamic Iran too, because in the Arabic proveb”time is a sharp sword”one can see the effect of time (zorvan). In sofist texts, time is regarded as a two- edged sword, with a sharp satanic edge and a soft divine one.It is a kind of interpretation in which two dimentions of zorvan can be seen.This study searches this point in sofist texts.

Keywords: Zorvanism, Sufism, Time, Ahuramazda, Ahriman, Good, Evil.
