Rostam Nameh 13d:Sohrab

Posted by:

Roj Hormazd Mah Shehrevar, 1384 Yz.

Some months later, Tahmina gave birth to an exceptional boy. In all respects he was like Rostam, but with the added spiritual splendour and radiance of his mother’s superior Athravan characteristics. He was named Sohrab. By the time he was three, Sohrab had graduated to playing with weapons and enjoying all kinds of athletic activities. By the time he was ten, there was none in the kingdom of Samangan who could stand up to his ...

Ending the debate on Organ Donation

Posted by:

Roj Meher Mah Amardad, 1384 Yz.

My article in response to Dasturji Khurshed’s appeal to community members in favour of Organ Donation received enthusiastic responses from both sides of the debate. However, there has been no response so far from Dasturji himself. In the meanwhile, many have written to me asking various points of clarification. Some important points have also been made by a few writers who have disagreed with my views. These queries and points require to be answered, hence ...

Posted by:

Roj Dae-pa-Meher Mah Tir, 1384 Yz.

[A note to overseas readers of Frashogard: On 17th November 2014, Dasturji Khurshed of Udvada, in his address to community members gathered at the Sanjan Memorial to observe Sanjan Day, made a plea for Parsis to donate their organs. This plea was given headline publicity by the Jame Jamshed in its issue dated 23rd November. A rejoinder to Dasturji Khurshed’s views was sent by me to Jame and appears in today’s edition. It is reproduced ...

A function was held yesterday, 26th October 2014 to pay tribute to the services rendered to the community by our Ilm-e-Khshnoom senior speaker, late Adi Doctor.

The day also marked the Siroza (30th day after death) of late Adi Doctor and hence was also of spiritual significance.

Right from 5 pm, a steady trickle of Khshnoom lovers and Parsis from all walks of life began to converge at the Banaji Atash Behram Hall to pay their respects ...

Who was Adi Doctor – a friend pays tribute

Posted by:

Roj Fravardin Mah Ardibehesht, 1384 Yz.

[Editor’s Note: I have received this detailed eulogy from a person who was very close to Adi Doctor and who prefers to remain Anonymous. Rather than posting as a comment, I felt that it deserved to be another post all by itself. In his eulogy, Adi’s friend sheds more light on the mental strength and the deep study of Khshnoom which Adi possessed and also some interesting tit-bits of his life. Readers of Frashogard are ...

A tribute to Adi F. Doctor

Posted by:

Roj Rashne Mah Ardibehesht, 1384 Yz.

It is my solemn duty to write a few words in memory of my senior colleague and profound Ilm-e-Khshnoom scholar Adi F. Doctor who passed away on Saturday, 27th September 2014 after nearly a year of illness.

Adi bhai or Adi uncle, as we used to fondly call him, was a living example of the saying ‘appearances can be deceptive.’ A short, thin man with a slightly unkempt appearance, hardly someone who would be noticed twice. ...

Is the worship of Paria Mai allowed in Zoroastrianism – part 3

Posted by:

Roj Khordad Mah Ardibehsht, 1384 Yz.

Those who may still not believe in what is written above or who may still be drawn to these sprites can try one more test. The Sefli Arvahi always impress humans by being able to answer any query about anyone in the past. However, ask any specific question regarding the future – the headlines in next Sunday’s newspaper, the winning numbers of the next big lottery, or any other such query which can have only ...

Is the worship of Paria Mai allowed in our religion – part 2

Posted by:

Roj Hormazd Mah Ardibehesht, 1384 Yz.

Readers may question as to why Abed Sahebs and other advanced souls can take the help of the Ulvi Arvahi but not normal Parsis. The answer is that the advanced souls have methods by which they can repay the favour owed to the Arvahi by enhancing their (the Arvahi’s) spiritual development whereas the normal Parsi has no way or method of repaying the obligation to the Arvahi and hence gets trapped on the journey towards ...
