SAOSHYANT
Also known as SAOHYANT

The Zoroastrian Messiah and God of Renewal.

At the end of time there will be quite a lot of purging, but well worth it. SAOSHYANT the Savior will be born of a virgin from the lineage of Zoroaster and put into motion AHURA-MAZDA's scorched earth policy.

The wicked followers of AHRIMAN will perish in a big bonfire with much screaming and wailing. But for the just and good, Judgment Day will be like a big party in a hot tub filled with warm milk.

Interestingly, SAOSHYANT's apocalyptic role has much in common with the Second Coming of JESUS. Except that SAOSHYANT had the idea first.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Saoshyant graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Saoshyant movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Saoshyant statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Saoshyant. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
