Mazdak ethical and principles

There are twodistinguishing factors of Mazdak's teaching were the reduction of the importance of religious formalities , the true religious person being the one who understood and related correctly to the principles of the universe and a criticism of the strong position of mainstream clergy, who, he believed, had oppressed the Persian population and caused much poverty. Mazdak emphasised good conduct, which involved a moral and ascetic life, no killing and vegetarianism which contained substances solely from Darkness being kind and friendly and living in peace with other people. According to Mazdak, God had originally placed the means of subsistence on earth so that people should divide them among themselves equally, but the strong had coerced the weak, seeking domination and causing the contemporary inequality.
