Roj Sherevar, Mah Avan, 1377 Yz.
The joyous and auspicious occasion of Nowruz will be celebrated all over the world tomorrow. It marks the beginning of the Fasli year 1377 and takes us one step closer to the time of the advent of the Promised Saviour, Shah Behram Varzavand.
The first seven days of the new year are specially dedicated to the 7 Amesha Spentas who, along with the Ashaunam Fravashinam, during these days, give a spiritual bath to the world and cleanse it of all the accumulated evil of the previous year. These days also mark the end of the Farvardegan period and is the time when the Urvan of the dear departed, who had descended on the Aiwithrishwa region of the Earth along with and under the protection and direction of the Ashaunam Fravashinam, begin their slow climb up to their respective spiritual planes where they will resume the work of cleansing their individual Kerdars.
As the Sun enters the sign of Aries and begins its annual journey, we can only wish that the coming year brings peace and joy to all Zarathushtrians around the globe and makes them more aware of their glorious religion and rich spiritual heritage.
