This chapter examines the issues relevant to globalization trends in Zoroastrianism. It explores the formation of the World Zoroastrian Organization; Internet communications which have removed geographical distances; the Millennium World Zoroastrian Congress held in Houston, Texas in 2000; and the global patterns of globalization. This chapter suggests that global interaction among Zoroastrians in different countries have helped various associations share strategies for community survival. This is especially true in Britain and the US.
