According to Zarathushtra after we leave this life, our essence leaves the
body, and depending on the choices that it has made,
either it will go to the House of Songs or Realm of light (if he has made
good choices) or to the Realm of Darkness and
Separation (if evil choices).
Heaven and Hell are not physical places, but are described as timeless
states of consciousness: either state of oneness with or
separation from Ahura Mazda.
Post-Zarathushtra Zoroastrianism mythologized these timeless states of
consciousness into everlasting physical locations and
descriptive places. This later concept permeated into Judeo-Christian
Since we are all endowed with the divine essence, we are all good and
divine. Therefore it is not the human beings who
are evil, but their choices, actions and deeds that could be good or
There is only one way to fight evil, and that is by spreading
goodness, just as there is only one way to fight the darkness,
and that is by spreading light. Similarly, only by spreading love can
we eliminate hatred and enmity, and not by fighting
and opposing each other.
Some Basic Maxims of Zoroastrianism

There is only one path and that is the path of Truth.
Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do, and then all
beneficial rewards will come to you also.
