ormuzd is the first creative agent produced by the Self-Existent.
These are ormuzd, the principle of light, and Ahriman, the principle of darkness.
ormuzd brought help to me; by the grace of ormuzd, I succeeded in passing the Tigris.
They were Ahriman's devas struggling with the Yazatas of ormuzd.
ormuzd creates the world pure and beautiful, but Ahriman comes after him and creates everything that is evil in it.
ormuzd imparted to each a human soul, and they became the parents of mankind.
The impure are to be purified, and the evil made good, through the mediation of Mithras, the reconciler of ormuzd and Ahriman.
In the name and friendship of ormuzd be ever shining, be very enlarged.
Man is the center of the conflict, but ormuzd as his creator has the greater power over him.
Sometimes he plays henchman to ormuzd, sometimes to Ahriman.
