Ancient permacultural earth stewardship - angels who cared for the Earth |
Yazidi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazidi
The *Yazidi* (also *Yezidi*, *Êzidî*, Yazdani, ایزدیان) are a Kurdish
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurds> ethno-religious community,
representing an ancient religion that is linked to Zoroastrianism
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoroastrianism>.[11]
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazidi#cite_note-PalmerBurgess2012-11> They
live primarily in the Nineveh Province
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineveh_Province> of northern Iraq
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq>. Additional communities in Armenia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenia>, Georgia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_%28country%29> and Syria
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syria> have been in decline since the 1990s,
their members having emigrated to Europe, especially to Germany
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany>.[12]

[this is wonderful and applies in our time]

"The Yazidi believe in God <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God> as creator of
the world, which he placed under the care of seven holy beings or angels
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel>, the chief of whom is Melek Taus
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melek_Taus>, the Peacock Angel."
