Angels in Zoroastrianism

The image of angels as we understand them in Western Christian society had probebly some of their origins in the ancient Persian religion of Zoroastrianism, an ancient religion during the Persian empires (559 BC to 651 AC) and was the most powerful world religion at the time of Jesus Christ.  It is one of the oldest monotheist religions and you can still find it being practiced today, especially in Iran and India.  Zoroastrianism recognizes various classes of spiritual beings besides the Supreme Being (Ahura Mazda): The Amesha Spentas, Yazatas, and Fravashis. In practice (cf. Sad Dar, chapter 26), Zoroastrians pick a patron angel for their protection, and throughout their lives are careful to observe prayers dedicated to that angel.

Amesha Spentas (Phl. Amahraspandan) (“Archangels”)

Literally, “Beneficent Immortals”, these are the highest spiritual beings created by Ahura Mazda (thier name for say God). Their names are:

  • Vohu Mano (Phl. Vohuman): lit. Good Mind. Presides over cattle.
  • Asha Vahishta (Phl. Ardwahisht): lit. Highest Asha, the Amahraspand presiding over Asha and fire.
  • Khshathra Vairya (Phl. Shahrewar): lit. ‘Desirable Dominion’, the Amahraspand presiding over metals.
  • Spenta Armaiti (Phl. Spandarmad): lit. ‘Holy Devotion’, the Amahraspand presiding over the earth
  • Haurvatat (Phl. Hordad): lit. ‘Perfection or Health’. Presides over water.
  • Ameretat (Phl. Amurdad): lit. ‘Immortality’, the Amahraspand presiding over the Earth.

Fravashis (Phl. Farohars) (“Guardian Angels”):

Angels-Zoroastrianism

Also known as Arda Fravash (“Holy Guardian Angels”). Each person is accompanied by a guardian angel (Y26.4, 55.1), which acts as a guide throughout life. They originally patrolled the boundaries of the ramparts of heaven (Bd6.3, Zs5.2), but volunteer to descend to earth to stand by individuals to the end of their days. Ahura Mazda advises Zarathushtra to invoke them for help whenever he finds himself in danger (Yt13.19-20). If not for their guardianship, animals and people could not have continued to exist, because the wicked Druj would have destroyed them all (Yt13.12-13).

The Fravashi also serves as an ideal which the soul has to strive for and emulate, and ultimately becomes one with after death (Y16.7, 26.7, 26.11, 71.23, Yt22.39) (See Dhalla, History of Zoroastrianism, pg 232-243, 375-378)

They manifest the energy of God, and preserve order in the creation. They are said to fly like winged birds, and are represented by a winged disk, often with a person superimposed (as in the above representation). Yazatas (Phl. Yazads) (“Angels”):

Angel-Zoroastrianism

Sasanian angel (8th ce. C.E.)

Lit ‘adorable ones’, a created spiritual being, worthy of being honored or praised. Like the Amesha Spentas they personify abstract ideas and virtues, or concrete objects of nature. The Yazatas are ever trying to help people, and protect us from evil (cf. Dk3, ch. 66). See below for some specifics of the more important Yazatas.

Angels in Buddhism

Angels-Buddhism

The Buddhist equivalent of angels is devas, or celestial beings. Some schools of Buddhism also refer to dharmapalas or dharma protectors. In Tibetan Buddhism, for instance, devas are sometimes considered to be emanations of bodhisattvas or enlightened beings. Different schools of Buddhism have different important devas, as they are often derived from pre-Buddhist cultures and religions and not from Buddhist philosophy.

Devas are spiritual beings by nature–their form is usually described as bodies or emanations of light or energy. They are, however, often depicted in physical form, and there are many images of devas or dharmapalas, particularly in Tibetan Buddhist iconography.

Devas normally do not interfere in human affairs, but as Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das notes, they have been known to rejoice, applaud, and rain down flowers for good deeds performed in the world. In Thailand, it is believed that devas approve of people meditating and will harass people of whose behavior they don’t approve.

The bodhisattva of compassion, known as Kwan Yin in Chinese and Chenrezig in Tibetan, is widely viewed as a sort of Buddhist angel. The bodhisattva’s original Sanskrit name, Avolokiteshvara, means “hearer of the 10,000 cries”–that is, he or she (the bodhisattva is male in the original Buddhist texts, but is represented as female in many Buddhist schools) perceives the suffering of all sentient beings. In some sects, reciting her name is believed to summon her aid.

ZODIAC (ANGELS OF THE)

The zodiac (literally, “circle of animals,” from the Greek zoion, living being, figure), is the name given to the imaginary circular zone of the heavens in which the Sun, Moon, and planets have their orbits. Because the orbits of the planets in the solar system all lie within approximately the same geometric plane, from any position within the system all of the heavenly bodies appear to move across the face of the same set of constellations. The zodiac is divided into twelve astrological signs associated with the twelve constellations-Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

The notion of the zodiac is very ancient, with roots in the early citied cultures of Mesopotamia. The first twelve-sign zodiacs were named after the gods of these cultures. The Greeks adopted astrology from the Babylonians, and the Romans, in turn, adopted it from the Greeks. These peoples renamed the signs of the Babylonian zodiac in terms of their own mythologies, which is why the familiar zodiac of the contemporary West bears names from Mediterranean mythology. The notion of a twelve-fold division derives from the lunar cycle (the orbital cycle of the Moon around the Earth), which the Moon coin- pletes twelve times per year.

Because various gods have traditionally been associated with the signs of the zodiac, it seems natural to suggest a possible correlation between angels and the zodiac. The connection is also a natural one to make because angels and astrological signs are both located primarily in the celestial realm. It was thus almost inevitable that angels came to be associated with the zodiac.

Many Judaic beliefs about astrology and angels were derived from Chaldean and Egyptian sources. The names of many of the angels were manufactured from the nature of their assignments in an almost atavistic regression to a pagan pantheon that assigned gods and goddesses for almost every natural force. The number of these became so vast in the apocryphal and pseudepigraphal literature that the rabbis believed they posed a threat to Judaic monothesism and so condemned all of the writing in this genre. Because such writings were suppressed, little information regarding the nature of these angels survives today.

WISDOM LITERATURE

Post-biblical, or wisdom literature, usually depicts angels as independent beings, who are distinguishable by name and distinctive trait. An interest in the nature and individual character of the angels developed with the belief that the mysteries related to the end of days and man’s future could be discovered only through the intermediary of angels. This was the main assumption of wisdom literature, which viewed revelation as corroboration of the validity of existing doctrines, rather than the point of departure for the acquisition of knowledge.

The Jews, who had become familiar with many of the old Babylonian myths through the wisdom of the Chaldeans, sought to ascribe many of the old Babylonian tales about gods and heroes to the world of angels in order to avoid contradiction with the monotheistic character of Judaism. Thus, various sources ascribe the wisdom of Enoch, Abraham, and Noah to their intimate knowledge of the world of angels and their communication with it. Pagan magic and demonology, as well as pagan literature, where angels usually appear in the company of pagan gods, also had a considerable influence on Jewish doctrine of angels.

Jewish doctrine of angels was not evenly embraced among the various cultures of the Jewish people, but rather was secretly acquired by a narrow circle of the specially initiated, such as, for example, the secret societies of the Essenes, among whom it found its widest distribution, and the Qumran sect.

Post-biblical literature divided angels into several classes that provided particular services. For instance, in the book of Daniel (8:16; 9:21), the angel Gabriel is defined as an interpreter of Daniel’s vision. Similarly, other angels appear as interpreters of symbolic visions in later apocalyptic writings.

The archangels, a group of seven angels who head the world of angels, are also mentioned in various sources, where they are generally described as dwelling in the proximity of God and in charge of tasks of special significance for world history. Another group of four angels, designated as “the angels of the Presence,” are mentioned in Enoch, in the Book of Adam and Eve, and in rabbinic literature, as having the important role in the punishment of the fallen angels.

Fallen angels, in particular, are frequently mentioned in post-biblical literature. The earliest report of fallen angels can be found in the Book of Enoch. Their story also appears in the Book of Jubilees, where fallen angels are said to have descended to earth to instruct mankind how to order society, but when they arrived on earth they were seduced by the daughters of men. However, there are several other versions of the legend of the fallen angels, such as those contained in Talmudic sources.

Among other groups of angels mentioned in post-biblical literature are the seventy “princes of the people” appointed over each of the seventy peoples of earth; the “guardian angels,” who seem to have been a religious concept common to the entire Semitic world, and whose function is to be on guard before God at all times and to supervise the actions of man.

According to post-biblical literature, the major function of angels is to offer praise to God, although their function as intermediaries between God and man is also important. Some sources mention the angels’ role as intercessor, pleading for man before God. Good angels also appear in opposition to evil angels who act as prosecutors before the throne of God. In Sefer ha-Razim, angels are used for purposes of magic, and the names of the angels, when coupled with those of Greek gods and magic phrases are considered efficacious for incantations.

Many sources stress the imperfect nature of angels, who are not regarded as omniscient, but rather as incapable of answering questions put to them. No unbridgeable gulf is supposed to exist between the material world and the world of angels, and it is believed, as mentioned in the Book of Enoch, that some righteous men could be transformed into angels. Israel, known as Jacob, is declared to be “the archangel of the power of the Lord” (Origen, Commentary to John, 11, 84, 15), and the people of Israel as a whole, are regarded as being equal to angels and, consequently, under the protection of God himself (Jub. 15:27ff.).

VALKYRIES

The valkyries were female warrior angels of Norse (Viking) legend who flew on horseback over the battlefield, choosing which warriors were to be slain and then carrying them back to Valhalla, the Norse paradise. The flash of their armor was said to be the cause of the northern lights (aurora borealis). During their movement from this world to the next, the valkyries crossed over a rainbow bridge connecting heaven and earth.

Prior to their role as angels of death, the valkyries of older Norse mythology originally may have been priestesses of Freyja, queen of heaven. They were subordinate to the Norns (the Norse Fates) and originally may have been their assistants. The Norn Skuld (the Fate of Necessity) often rode with the valkyries.
