Fasli Muktad prayer & lecture program

Posted by:

Roj Dae-pa-Din Mah Meher, 1381 Yz.

The Fasli Muktad will commence from Friday 9th March, 2012. The main centre of prayers will be the Ustad Saheb Behramshah N. Shroff Daremeher at Jogeshwari, where the preparations for the 95th annual Muktad program have been completed. The special area where the Fasli Muktad are enthroned has been cleaned and washed, fresh wheat grass has been planted and the 27 glasses representing the Hama Anjuman have been made ready.

The Fasli Muktad program will begin with a special Invocation on the dawn of Friday, 10th March. Thereafter the main prayers will commence. A special 11 Karda Afringan is performed in the Havan Gah, along with the relevant Bajs. A separate 7 Karda Afringan in memory of our revered Ustad Saheb is also performed. Stum and Farokshi prayers are performed in every Gah, for eac of the 19 days of the Muktad. Special Gahambar and Gatha Jashans will be held on the relevant days, as also a special Jamshedi Navroze Jashan, as well as Khordad Sal Jashan on 26th March.

As in previous years, Humbandagi will be held at the Daremeher every evening at 7:30 pm. Before the Humbandagi, I will give a 30 minute talk everyday on different topics. The lecture program for the 19 days is given below.
