The real significance of Rapithwin and second Havan

Posted by:

Roj Mahrespand Mah Avan, 1383 Yz.

The advent of Avan Mah is celebrated by many Parsees with great gusto as it means unlimited feasting on the great Parsi delicacy of Dal ni Poli. The number of Parsis who mark Avan Mah with the daily recitation of the Avan Yasht is, of course, much less. But those of us who observe the overall progress of the Zoroastrian calendar will be aware of another important event. All Parsi calendars remind their ...

Roj Khorshed Mah Spendarmad, 1382 Yz./Kadmi Khordad Sal

A Happy and resplendent Khordad Sal to all Kadmi readers of Frashogard!

A few days ago we saw the righteous thoughts (Mithra) which need to be passed while performing the Kusti ritual. Many readers may be surprised to know that there is a similar procedure to be followed even while putting on the Sudreh. Just as the Kusti ritual should ...

How to do the right Kusti

Posted by:

Roj Ardibehesht Mah Spendarmad, 1382 Yz.

The foundation of every Zoroastrian ritual, every ceremony and every prayer is the Kusti. The act of tying the Kusti on the waist is what sets apart a Zoroastrian from another person. In effect, it is the most visible and well-known symbol of the Zoroastrian religion. It is therefore, also the most misunderstood.

In our series on What is Zoroastrian Yoga, carried a ...

Like many other students of Khshnoom, my friend also came to the realization that this lifetime was not enough to even begin to understand the mysteries of our religion. Moreover, there was the feeling of having missed ...

Being a good Parsi, even in hospital – part 4

Posted by:

Roj Mohor, Mah Tir 1382 Yz.

Having understood the importance of maintaining a  Saabet Kusti, we now turn our attention to the prayers to be done. One may think that in the pain and distress, tension and stress of the hospital surroundings, the last thing on a patient’s mind would be prayer. But that is not true. For those of us, for whom prayer is a daily routine at multiple points of the day, the inability to pray or to perform ...
