The Parsee people are found throughout Central Asia, Canada, China, U.S.A, and the United Kingdom. Parsees practice Zoroastrianism, an ancient Persian religion. They believe that fire is the highest authority and that it is the son of God. They also dedicate much time to worshipping their ancestors and practicing many religious rituals. Parsee’s value wisdom above all things. Many Parsee trace their lineage to King Darius, Xerxes, and Cyrus from the Old Testament. They are very proud of their royal heritage and often feel as though they are superior to others. They live their lives by the motto “good thought, good word, good deed”.*
