Meet Mr Kersi Aspar!

Hello everyone, I am Kersi Aspar – an ethnic Parsi Zoroastrian. I am a member of the PZAS (Parsi Zoroastrian Association of Singapore) who is involved in the Inter Religious Organisation in Singapore. For me, the tenets of Zoroastrianism are timeless. My religion promotes the idea that we are responsible for our own actions. Hence, it is important for us to do things with good intentions, keeping in mind the principles of good thoughts, good words and good deeds.

Although I am a Zoroastrian by birth, I am still in the process of learning more about the faith and about myself. I am excited to share my knowledge and faith in the upcoming festival!

More about the Zoroastrian House

The Zoroastrian House located on Desker Road is where the Zoroastrian community congregates but it is not to be confused with a Fire Temple (an official place of worship). There is no Fire Temple in Singapore and worship is conducted in these private settings. Contrary to popular belief, Zoroastrians are not fire worshippers and see fire in a more symbolic way as representing God’s light or wisdom.

Today, the Zoroastrian community in Singapore is approximately 350 members strong. Despite their relatively smaller numbers, the contributions of the Zoroastrian community to Singapore’s progress have been significant and they form an important part of our social fabric.
