A RELIGIOUS DISCUSSION
WITH PERVIN MISTRY


Pervin Mistry is a graduate from the University of Bombay (1965) with honours in philosophy. A student of our religion throughout her life, she has presented papers at Interfaith Symposiums, the Parliament of World Religions (at Chicago and Melbourne), and at public events at various Zoroastrian Associations. Being an active participant in community and religious affairs, she has participated at the various North American and World Zoroastrian Congresses and Avesta Conferences. Her articles have appeared in the FEZANA Journal and other media.
 
Pervin migrated to Toronto, Canada with her husband Jimmy and family in 1969, and has accompanied her Jimmy on various international assignments.  Her greatest achievement has been her family. A housewife all her life, she has kept busy with her three sons, 3 daughters-in-law and 7 grandchildren living in different corners of the world.

Pervin kindly consented to have an open discussion with the Zoroastrian Community in Western Australia, just days prior to her departure for Toronto. On 31 October 2010, this discussion was held at the Moresby Hall in South Perth.

At the event, Pervin spoke on the topics:

  • Where is it Written? When people discuss the teachings of our religion, a common question is "where is it written?"  This talk presented some well-known and lesser-known facts about our scriptures as well as direct evidence for various other pertinent topics.
  • Iran. Pervin also shared her experiences of her religious trips to Iran.

Her speech was followed by a Q&A session.

At the end of the day, everybody went home with a slightly more educated view of the Zoroastrian religion.
