As Ahura Mazda (Persian, literally "Great Sun-Aura"; Middle Persian: Ormuzd, also Oromasdes, Ohrmazd, Ahuramazda, Hourmazd, Hormazd, and Hurmuz) the wisdom-filled astral body of the Sun appeared to the open spiritual gaze of the Ancient Persian People. Ahura Mazda is therefore sometimes translated as "Great Wisdom". Behind this is Honover, the divine word of creation, as the spiritual essence. Zarathustra recognised in Ahura Mazda the Christ who descends step by step from the solar sphere to the Earth.
