4). The prophet calls him also the creator (dąmī-) of Asha (Y. 8); and using a synonym, dātar-, declares him further to be ‘Creator of all things by the Holy Spirit’ (Y. 7). How he was held to have performed the act of creation is perhaps indicated in a verse where Zarathushtra says to him: ‘In the beginning Thou didst fashion for us by Thy thought creatures and inner selves (daēnā-) and intelligences…. Thou didst create corporeal life’ (Y. 11). The world which Ahura Mazdā created was that of the seven separate creations described above; and by another remarkable step in thought, Zarathushtra saw each of these seven creations as having one of the Heptad as its protector, dwelling within it.
The spenta divinities did not, it appears, repeat Ahura Mazdā’s choice: they were of his essence, innately ashavan; but the daēvas, who once, it seems, despite their bad nature, acknowledged Mazdā’s pre-eminence (Y. 1), were deluded by Angra Mainyu into choosing ‘Worst Purpose’ (Y. 6); and they then themselves deluded their worshippers, depriving them of good life on earth and of immortality (Y. 3–5).
