Aim of this Blog

There is something very wrong with the world that we are made to see around us. Human Society is not happy, there is
protest, discontentment, poverty, inequality, greed, corruption, Ego, Fanatics’, Agnostics’, natural calamities occurring with frightening regularity and above all Global terrorism which just does not want to call it a day.In short there is chaos everywhere. One word that can describe all this is “Qayamat”. In Jamasphi” and at many places in our Zoroastrian scriptures like“Chithrem Buyaat” prayers, it is mentioned that time is near for Shah Behram Varjawand our Saviour to come in this Qayamat and revive us and our Deen. The Saviours from other religions will also appear and will work together with a common goal for grooming mankind and his spiritual revival.

Today every one wants to die a Martyr's death for Religion, but no body wants to live for the sake of true teachings of Religion. It goes without a doubt that we have let go the true kernel of Mysticism in religion and embraced only the outer shell of a glossy show of Religion. We forget that Religion is not show business but it is a way of living. Your Left hand should not be able to know what Tarikats your right hand is practicing.

The Western Astrology call this as Aquarian age and phenomenon that we see today are occuring with lightening quickness. For we never knew that Communist USSR will disintegrate one day and fragment into many small nations, that Germany will one day be united, the revolution in Egypt, Syria, the fall of dictators, and China a sleeping giant awakening to technological boom are all an indicator that we are very much in this Aquarian age. The transition from the Age of Pisces to Aquarian Age is already taking its toll till we roll into Age of peace and calm. We are looking forward to being Optimistic and not being fatally Pessimists. Please see the link provided:-

More than 100 years before in past when faith was at its lowest Nadir in our community without caring for deep religious significance when there was idle talks about futility of our time tested customs like Dokhmenashini, Rituals, Sudreh Kusti being only a symbol, Avesta Manthra prayers being considered as waste of time, faulty myopic thinking that offerings of sandalwood to Atash Padshah being waste of sound monetary resources which could have been better utilized for betterment of our community, lack of faith was the reason behind these ignorance’s. Ignorance coupled with arrogance was, and still is the main reason stymieing our spiritual progress.

The Zoroastrian hidden Masters in Demavand who are very much concerned about our community’s spiritual progress saw the need of sending a forerunner before the advent of Shah Behram Varjawand Saheb, and they chose Behramshah Nawroji Shroff whom his followers lovingly call him as Ustad Saheb. He brought amongst us Zoroastrian Mysticism called as Zarathosti Ilme-Khshnoom.

The word Khshnoom can be found even in our scriptures, so it is not something alien that is thrust on us. It is the revival of the lost knowledge called as Ilme-Khshnoom that our forefathers had with them that kept the flame of faith burning in their hearts, that Ustad saheb brought for us. The literature is penned down by his chosen and authorized disciples late Dr. Saheb Faramroze Sohrabji Chiniwala, and Late Jehangirji S. Chinwala.

Late Ervad Phiroze Shapurji Masani had for so many years maintained his publication “Frashogard” all under guidance of Ustad Saheb. Today we see that day by day our faith is again going downhill. The need of Saviour can only be felt when all seems to be lost towards Traditional cause. It is to rekindle that hope and faith and iron out unwarranted fear of our religion dying a premature death that this Blog will be looking forward to. The aim for starting this Blog is to translate the majority of Khshnoom literature that is in Gujarati writings of Late Chiniwala brothers and Late Phiroze Masani for the benefit of those genuinely interested in Zoroastrian Mysticism .

When there is too much of chaos nature allows it only up to a certain threshold limit, once it crosses the limits it puts a
full stop to it, for nature has its own ways of bringing Order out of Chaos.

So in mean time what are we Zarathosti Bastekustian supposed to do that will hasten the advent of Shah Behram Varjawand Saheb ? Are we supposed to look skywards and wait for him eternally ? His advent will much depend upon us also.

In nature there is a law of “Supply and Demand”. If the demand is there, supply is guaranteed. In Bible it is said that "Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you will find it, knock and the doors will open to you." ….. Mathew 7:7 Niv. Unfortunately the much needed knock never seems to happen and everybody is busy enjoying their fun filled moments and warns us to keep off limits of their rights and Freedom. But they seem to forget that behind every right that one asks for, there is a responsibility which is conveniently forgotten.

"RTI" also known as "Right to information"is blatantly misused in today's world of so called Freedom . Some want Freedom to enjoy whatever is appealing to them, but is considered as Taboo in Society. Not before all these false ideology will be swept away by fury of nature and realization of folly will dawn naturally aftermath,nevertheless too late by then, but the road will be paved for introducing Shah Behram Varjawand to the world.

In middle of face-off between two warring sides and Chaos, we will come to know the time of Varjawand Saheb's arrival automatically. As a Mother knows intuitively the time of delivery of the baby, we will feel the desperate pangs of labour like a Mother feels before her delivery.

Right now only a few are longing for his arrival but just as "A lone sparrow does not herald a spring" similarly one requires a collective thought force to set everything in motion. For that I had started a short exercise every 7.30 a.m. in morning but unfortunately we don’t seem to realize its importance. Till we are all vibrating with one frequency, other word is called as Hum Mithra, Varjawand Saheb’s advent will be a distant dream only. The exercise is as under to be followed by a Mithra every 7 a.m. or around that time frame. No need to be very rigid about time. The Mithra is as under:-

What is Hum Mithra:-

Man proposes and God disposes. Hence we requires Dadar Ahura Mazda’s blessings all the time for success and that is known as “Daham Afriti”. Without it we cannot move forward even an inch. But for his Daham Afriti to be assessable to us we require to think with one vibration in Hamoi, only then can we succeed in our purpose. Dadar Ahura Mazda is not happy when there is infighting so how can we receive his Daham Afreeti. This one thought force having selfless single pure vibration is known as Hum Mithra. The Law of cause and effect governs this universe so whatever incidents we see bad or good its cause has to be there. Every action has its reaction. The bad precedent that we are facing now after a crematorium is announced in Worli where innocent public are falling prey to it. Those encouraging Aramgah and such ashmogi are themselves the victims of their own deeds so we have to pity them instead of contempt for them and a calming thought has to be passed by us at a particular time collectively. If love is the language of angels then why should we be harsh to even our so called enemies. For in life there are no enemies, and everything is Karmic. The Bhali Dua is as under:-

Bhali Dua at 0730 am every morning:-

2 Yatha , 1 Ashem Vohu.

Those ignorant brothers and sisters opposing our age old customs of Dokhmenashini and believe in universality of our religion by inviting all to our holy places and Iranshah need our pity and not contempt for they are bitten by the demon of ignorance and arrogance. O Paak Dadar Ahura Mazda shower your choicest blessings upon them that they regain their lost faith and begin realizing that the true nature of religion is humility.

"Let no harm come upon the Traditional Zoroastrian flag and its values which are so dear to us. Let the reformists agenda and their nefarious plans never succeed. Let no harm befall upon Pavmahal of India that is - our Iranshah of Udwada and all Atash Behram, Atash Adran and Dadgah of India. Let not one day pass without Atash Parasti and our reverence towards Holy consecrated Fire(Pavmahal),Dokhmas, Sudreh Kusti, Mathravani which acts as a weapon to thwart evil. Enable us to protect our racial traits of Parsi Panu through Boonak Pasbani. Enable us to maintain our true “Zarathosti Khandani” by not intermarrying and continue with our Aryan Lineage intact. May the advent of Shah Behram Varjawand come soon, and before him may his forerunners arrive at the earliest and grant us spiritual strength to withstand evil around us. Let my Kusti Padiav and my Tarikats be helpful to nature to fight for the cause of righteousness against the evil negative forces of Drujis, and may it protect us all Zarathustis and entire humanity who live by their religion and its tenets. "Phiroj baad Khureh avizeh Vehdin e Mazdiyasnan" - Let the Khoreh of Mazdiyasni Zarathosti deen protect its faithful followers"

A true incident of a Jinn living amongst humans.- Part 3

Rafu’s father later took Akhtar on world tour along with Rafu to various places of the world like African Continent, Italy, Turkey, China, Japan, Arabia, Iran all within flash of closing and opening of his eyes. All corners of the world were toured by them and writing it in details by Akhtar, a book titled “My World Tour” from his diary his unfinished job till now. Whether he has accomplished that feat by now is unknown by the writer of Parsee Avaz. It must have taken him years to record historical account of facts and events experienced by him and arranged in Chronological order in form of a book from his diary. As I said before this article had appeared first in “Kismet” Monthly Magazine but was initially and originally written in “The Intermediate College Magazine Aligarh” by Mr M. A. A. Hami. Mr. Hami writes further that suddenly Akhtar whilst in midst of making world tour finds himself suddenly in “Aara” home town of Rafu where he had met Rafu’s father in a Cave. It was early morning time and he saw Rafu seated on a couch in Diwankhana before him. The sudden turn of events in a fraction of a second surprised Akhtar into disbelief. But he also found the diary and all the narration that he had written from his world tour in his pocket. Akhtar doubted whether Rafu’s father had mesmerized him into believing of his world tour, but he immediately became conscious of the diary in his pocket where he had meticulously written about his World travel in details. But that meant that he had actually visited all the places in world and proof was lying in his pocket, and it was not some sort of Mesmerism playing tricks over his imagination gone awry. Akhtar did not know what to believe and what to discard as some bad dream. His condition at that time was like a lunatic at loss of words which did not make sense of all events summed up which occurred in front of his eyes.

Rafu took Akhtar to a room where choicest of food was spread on table to be served. Rafu’s father came inside that room and looked in direction of Akhtar, as he wanted to brief him about something. Rafu’s father continued further and asked him whether Europe did possess the fine science of making a world tour merely by sitting in a room and closing one’s eyes. ??? Akhtar replied in negative. That Science is called as “ilme- Roohani” or Spiritual Science, whereas Europe can only boast of Materialistic Science. “Jinn” and “Pari” or “Arvahi” are very much conversant with Spiritual Science known as “ilme- Roohani”, whereas Westerners are not even aware that such a Science can Co-exist in this material world. With help of this Science Jinn and Pari can travel in fraction of a second from one corner of world to another, be present there and can see, hear whatever is happening over there. If required “Jinn” can make themselves invisible and can change their form and body to whatever they want, and can go wherever they want. They dwell in world invisible to humanity in different dimensions and in lower planes. With help of this Science jinn can never become ill. Like humans they too are susceptible to death. The only difference between them and humans is that Jinn can lead a pious life where as humans are prone to temptations. If humans can develop their higher senses (Editor’s Note:- By observing various methods of Tarikats as shown in their own Religion in which they are born), by having faith on inner capabilities of dormant spiritual faculties so within, than there is hardly any difference between Jinn and human beings. This science belongs to Arabs and their predecessors with the help of this science were capable of making a dead man alive. In India very few Tantric Yogis that can be counted on finger tips are aware of this knowledge.

After some briefing done by Rafu’s father all three of them sat on dining table where breakfast was kept. To Akhtar’s surprise he noticed several set of hands without body Torso helping themselves with the food kept on table. This was too much for Akhtar to see and believe and he immediately fainted over there.

As he regained from his stupor and jolt that he had received he found himself lying on a couch of waiting room of Patna Railway station. Now accustomed and prone to receiving startling surprises one after another he got up and mingled in the crowd of railway station heading towards his home – hostel of Aligarh Muslim University where he belonged and was yearning for a good rest and sleep for he was very much tired physically as well as mentally.

On that very day he was feeling feverish and fever persisted for five days and refused to go. On sixth day his fever subsided and he received a letter from postman. The letter was from Rafu. He immediately opened the letter and read it. Rafu told him in the letter never to disclose whatever had transpired between the two of them and keep everything under wrap as a well-guarded secret. Rafu further wrote in the letter that every day Akhtar will daily be receiving a hundred Rupee note from below his pillow where he sleeps and that will take care of his education and daily expenses throughout his life. Perhaps Rafu added in his letter he might meet him later.

From the very next day onwards Akhtar began receiving hundred Rupee note daily which manifested by itself from under his pillow. He was surprised and dazed as to how such a thing can happen which had no rational logic behind it. He kept on receiving hundred rupee note daily for three consecutive months. His family and his class mates began wondering at the sudden flow of his unaudited income, even though he was not employed anywhere.

Human being is prone to making mistakes and such was the case with Akhtar also. Upon daily inquiry from his maternal uncle about his unknown source of income Akhtar finally came out with his little secret and told him the truth. From the very next day he stopped receiving hundred rupee note from under his pillow, and also received a letter from Rafu. The contents of the letter are as under:-

Date:-12th September,1926.
Place:- Aara

Dear Akhtar,

I hope you are in good of health. Perhaps this may be my last letter to you. I am deeply saddened that in spite of my repeatedly cautioning you were unable to keep the little secret about us within your belly. Whatever has happened has happened and I cannot undo it. But since you are my friend I do not want to drag the matter more about it. I have disclosed my real identity and put before you every truth about me and my father, and the special knowledge he possessed.

I had always considered you to be my true friend and had always loved you. I always admired you and loved you like a true friend, but was disappointed that you finally betrayed me in the end. I do not blame you, for humans are like that only and they betray your faith, and are always prone to temptations.

Perhaps I may meet you again in future, but you may not recognize me. I am even telling you the Venue beforehand where we will meet again. “Elphinstone Picture Palace” is the place where we will meet again.

This will be my last conversation with you as I will never contact you again. Alvida!!

Yours loving Friend,


This is the end of the narration of true incident. Kismet Monthly Magazine in which this article appeared was titled as “Rafu”.

I repeat what I had said before in the beginning, that there was some person in the past, and even now in present who claim to have met some Saheb and describing the huge palace, illuminated with lots of lights, where non vegetarian food of Fish, Mutton and Alcohol was freely available and consumed over there. One can easily relate such a narration with the above mentioned true incident and compare of its authenticity. One thing is clear from the above narration of true incident, the lifestyle and the luxury enjoyed by these Jinn and Pari living in some unseen dimension. We also know now as to how a Jinn can draw a person towards their dwelling place.

For establishing contact with Asho Abed Saheb one require to be eligible first by following and observing Tarikats in minute details. If there is absence of following even basic fundamental Tarikats then that person’s claim is to be doubted. Perhaps as per Late Jehangirji Chiniwala he may have come in contact with a “Sephli Arvahi” who has fooled him into a belief. Those persons using only their personal intelligence to conclude on observations put forward by others that is known in Khshnoomic parlance as “Akal e Imkan dar Nafs”. Such a person not using his own Kherad, but relying only on his so called adopted conjectures is prone to misadventure. ( Ref:- P.A. 12.02.1967 Pg 3).

Whatever was to be known from Zarathosti ilme-khshnoom point of view has been narrated above. In Islam religion much has been written and known about it in their holy scriptures.

But a Zarathosti Bastekustian is forbidden to associate under any karmic obligations with a Jinn, Pari.

Akhtar received with help of Rafu monetary benefits. All this is possible because of the special powers possessed by Jinn. This narration can be considered as an eye opener and one should tread with caution about any belief thrust upon us and use our god given intelligence or earned “Kherad” to separate chaff from the wheat by getting to the bottom of truth.

This series in three parts has been concluded.

Editor’s Note:- My next article will be somewhat more related to this article only, where in much more can be written about “Arvahi”. It’s knowledge about many sciences and our ignorance of its existence. The evil spells of “Adha Mantra” that can be cast upon humans, and Sorcerers taking help of Jinn in casting a spell. The science behind Black Magic that can harm progress of a human. And side by side science of White Magic that is only used for spiritual benefits moving one closer to Frashogard and Avesta Manthra associated with it. The many cures and shield provided in our religion as preventive measures towards cast of evil spells.

Kind regards,

A true incident of a Jinn living amongst humans.- Part 2

Akhtar’s eyes fell immediately on Rafu’s father, and as mark of respect Akhtar saluted with traditional Muslim Salaam, Rafu’s father reciprocated back with other Salaam to Akhtar. After having greeted each other Akhtar felt humble enough not to look straight in his eyes as he intuitively felt that that he was standing before a pious personality. All three of them then proceeded towards a palatial room decorated with antiques and rich style. Whole room was decorated with Iranian Carpets which prompted Akhtar into belief that he was in the enchanting World of wonderland of Aleef-Laila which reminded him of Castle of Allaudin Badshah in it. As time passed by Akhtar kept on looking at surroundings dumbstruck with awe and amazement. He kept on wondering whether this was not his imagination playing tricks on him but everything looked so real to him. After having a hearty meal together Rafu had a confession to make to Akhtar. He told him as a matter of fact that in reality there was supposed to be no marriage , or get together later but it was just an excuse to bring him here and to introduce to his father, who was so eager to meet Akhtar.

The next day Rafu took Akhtar again to his father. This time the topic of discussion was to be “The Western and Eastern Civilization and various Sciences’ attached to it”. As three of them sat together Rafu’s father started his conversation explaining about Europe and American Civilisation and how they have made materialistic progress by inventing flying machines like jet airplanes, wireless Radio, Zeppelin. He went on further that he will demonstrate to Akhtar as to how Eastern Civilisation and it’s Sciences’ were far superior than Western Sciences’ by actually making him travel in time without help of any aircraft to various places of the world in fraction of a second by merely closing his eyes and thinking about that place in his mind’s eye. Rafu’s father requested Akhtar to close his eyes shut and to sit calmly at one place. Now he requested him to name any City of the world to his liking. Akhtar blurted out the name of Paris. He was told to open his eyes now. To his amazement and surprise the next moment Akhtar saw him seated in a Suite of a very famous Hotel in Paris and immediately next to him was Rafu and his father waving at him with glee seated nearby a window. Immediately Akhtar instinctively took a peek out of the hotel window and what he saw was a bird’s eye view of Paris city busy streets with countless cars moving and shining their lights like diamonds on a necklace, the hustle and bustle of innumerable Tram Cars shuttling to and fro in the Metropolitan city of Paris, and the jostle of sea of humanity on busy streets out to make a living in rat race known as life. The three of them descended from the hotel and came down on the streets of Paris. Upon inquiry of the name of the Hotel they were in he was told that famous hotel was called as Hotel “The Continent” and had more than thousand attached Suites and rooms in it, and was built at the cost of 80 lakhs. Rafu’s father hired a Taxi and all three of them sat in it, Rafus’ father giving instructions to Chauffeur of the destination and speaking in French with him. Akhtar wondered with amazement about proficiency and fluency with which Rafus’ father spoke French with the Chauffeur. Akhtar began recording all his travels in a diary. Later on they also went in Cinema talkies in Paris where door keeper allowed them to go inside without asking them for valid entry tickets.

Hotel Continent Paris, France

Hotel Alexandra City of London

Cathedral of Assumption Moscow, Kremlin

World Tour with a Jinn:-

As if this was not enough Rafus’ father inquired whether he would like to tour City of London. Akhtar gulped air in his dry throat, his Adams apple moving up and down and blurted “yes” as if he had any choice. This time again he was told to shut his eyes and lay still at one place. He opened his eyes and the next moment he was in Hotel Alexandra in City of London sipping hot Coffee with Rafu and his father. They visited all places worth seeing in London which was meticulously recorded by Akhtar in his travel diary.

After London the next stop was New York. They visited Grande Oriental Hotel in New York and from the hotel balcony were able to see the city of New York. Like that they visited California, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Boston where he was introduced to a Bengali Student by the name of Mr. Sarkar. Since it was lengthy trip all was recorded in Akhtar’s dairy but is not shown here. For details one can refer the Kismet Magazine article.

Again Akhtar was made to close his eyes shut, this time they visited Berlin in Germany. The distance between Berlin and America is vast but still the travel between two places took place in fraction of a second with closing and opening of the eyes. Readers can surmise the science possessed by Djinn which today’s western world can never dream of acquiring it. In Berlin they visited famous Central Hotel. The most amazing part was without anybody objecting to their entry they were allowed to enter in any hotel unhindered. The other amazing part was Rafus’ Jinn father was like a Professor able to speak in any tongue the local language as if he had mastery over all spoken languages of the world. From there they went to “Vimer” where they visited the resting place of famous Poet known as “Geteh”. All the details are noted in Akhtar’s diary and many places visited in Germany were taken note of.

The next trip after closing eyes was Russia. Upon opening eyes Akhtar found himself in “Hotel Krusho”, from there they visited Cathedral of Assumption, Moscow. Rafu’s father narrated that the French army when they looted Russia they took all the booty from the Cathedral of Assumption Moscow in terms of five tons of Gold, and five tons of Silver, and plenty of Jewellery. They also viewed one of the wonders of the world and saw the Giant Bell of Moscow with portray of “Tzarelexis” and “Zarinayeni” carved beautifully on the giant Bell itself.

The Great bell of Moscow, Kremlin

The Great Pyramids of Egypt :-

Again Akhtar was told to close his eyes shut, this time he thought that it must be 10 o’clock in the morning and when he turned his head around he noticed himself to be middle of desert where the great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt was visible to his unbelieving eyes. As usual he was told by Rafu’s father who seemed to be knowing the world’s history at his fingertips that this Pyramid wad built by “Pharaoh” the King of Egypt and is thousands of years old structure that he was looking at. The biggest Pyramid was built by king Cheops of Egypt. It occupies 12 Acres of land and is 732 square feet in width and 460 feet in height and is stuffed with 8.5 Crores Cubic feet of material in it. It took 20 years to be built, and it took 6,63,000 (Six lakhs sixty three thousand) workers to build it. They also saw Pyramids of Sphinx which is human headed lion seated near the Pyramids, which is five thousand years old structure.

The Sphinx Pyramid

The ever wise Rafu’s father continued with Akhtar as his tourist Guide and said that the knowledge possessed by the Arabs was much more than all the sciences put together by European world. As per Rafu’s father Arabs were much more advanced in many sciences whereas Europe was still Barbaric.

Editor’s Note:-

We all know from where the Arabs got their knowledge that is from the Persians partly by persuasion and mainly by threatening them with force of sword. As in Shahnamah Firdausi Tusi says that Arabs were Bedouins, Nomads living on lizard’s meat and Camel’s milk.

Thus Firdausi Tusi in his Grand Epic Shah Namah or Book of Kings says :-

1) Toh inra darugho fasanah madan;
Ba yaksan ravesh dar Zamanah madan.

You do not consider this narration (in shah namah) as fairy tales, useless or false ;
All Zamanahs are not same (yaksan),they keep on changing from time to time, and things which were possible in one Zamanah is impossible in another Zamanah .

2) Badin Namah Umgraha Boguzard;
Bekhanad haran kas ,ke darad kherad.

This namah (shah namah) will remain vibrantly alive in hearts forever ;
For those who has Kherad will understand what i mean when i say that that today we are incomplete, whilst formerly our ancestors were complete as descended from our original Bunyaad .

3) Paragandah dar daste har mubadee;
Az Barahi Bordeh har beh khradih.

I have collected fragments of narrations(in Pahalvi) from different Mobeds;
All this narrations were destroyed by fanatics ( in 9 th century A.D),which can be observed from history.

4) Pur amad zeh shahan jehanra kafiz;
nehan shud zaroh gasht payda pashiz.

World (jehanra) has experienced deluge and calamities;
wherein the golden qualities (zaroh)like selfless service has disappeared, and selfish attitude which is like shell or kauri (pashiz) has been reinstated or born (payda).

5) Haman zezasht shud khuboh , shud khub zezasht;
Shud raheh-Duzukh padid az Behesht.

What once was considered bad (zezasht) has been legitimised now, and what was considered good (khub) has been condemned as bad now ;
Path to hell (duzukh) became visible,where as golden path to heaven( Behesht) became obscured.

6) Degar gunah shud Charkheh-Gardaan bachehar;
Zeh Azadgan pak bubrid Meher.

The (planetary aspects )Celestial sphere or dome is now spinning (charkeh-Gardaan) in a different manner ;
Those who were free from vices(azadgan) and god fearing (pak),the shelter of meher was lifted away from them.

7) Negunsar shud Takhteh-Sassaneh yan;
Azan zezasht kerdareh Iranian.

The Sassanian throne (which was azadgan) has been overturned ;
The bad( zezasht)deeds (kerdar)of Iranians ( mixed marriage, conversions ) was the reason for their downfall.

8) Zeh shireh-Shutor khurdanoh sus-mar;
Arbara Bajaie rasidast kar.

Those Arabs (Arbara) who drink milk of camel (shireh sutor) and who eat flesh of Lizards;
The fanatism of Arabs (Arbara)has reached upto such unbearable proportion.

9) Keh takhteh Kyanra kunad aarzooyeh;
Tofuh Bad bar Charkheh-Gardaan Tofuh.

That they desire (Arzooyeh) to possess the throne of Kyaniyan dynasty(takhteh kyanra);
Oh Revolving skies or Planets(Charkeh gardaan),it is shameful(Tofuh) that such fanatics are being encouraged.

10) Benahahe abad Gardad Kharab;
Zeh Barano Az Tabesheh-Aftab.
Pay afgandam Az nazma kakhe-Baland,
Ke Az bado Baran neyabad gazand.

Gigantic civilizations consisting of earthy Tall Buildings and Palaces or whatever can be build by Khakh or earth which were once Abad or at its Zenith peak ;
will someday bite the dust due to Rain water (baran) and Sun (Aftab),
But this Palace of epic poetry which i have made will remain immortal in such a way, that cyclonic winds (bado) or Torrential Rains (Baran) cannot even touch or destroy my Shah Namah epic.

That Firdausi Tusi's Poems glorified Zarthusti Din is evident from his poetry ,although he proclaimed himself to be follower of Islam in public, but his Bataen or hidden faith surely belonged to Zarthushti din which is evidently narrated as under :-

11) Sue-Gumbad-azar arid Ruuy ,
Ba farmane-paygambare-rast guuy.

You face in the direction of Atash Kebla (gumbade-Azar) which connects one to Ruuy of Hormuzd ,
It is farman or directive of Paygambar to stand in humility before Holy fire

12) Ba Yazdan ke hargez na binad behesht ,
Kasi ku nadarad rahe-Zardohesht.

I speak with truth of Yazdan, that they will never attain Behesht or heaven,
who do not (nadarad) follow the path (rahe) of Zarathustra ( Zardohesht) .

13) Rahe Boot-parasti parag-dah Shud,
Ba Yazdan-parasti pur agandah shud.

After the spread of Zarthushti Din the path (rahe) of Boot-parasti or Evil Black Magic which is selfish attitude has come to an end,
And Yazdan Parasti has been spread in every particle of this universe.

14) Pur Az Nur-e-Yezad Bebud Dakhmah,
Yaz aludgi pak shud Takhmah.

Let there be free flow of Yazatic Noor in Dokhmas;
so that the contagion (aludagi) associated with Tokham or seed of Zoroastrian becomes pure (pak).

Firdausi Tusi’s above mentioned 12th couplet is so forceful in nature that one would immediately doubt as to how a Poet with a Muslim name praise so much about Zoroastrian religion and that too with such conviction and unfalteringly faith. From where did he get so much faith.

Let us think about it.

Kind regards,

A true incident of a Jinn living amongst humans.- Part 1

{ Editor’s Note:- The under mentioned article Reference is from :- Parsee Avaz dated 05.02.1967 Volume 20 Issue 32. This article is in continuation to previous part where in it was explained as to how an Ashwan of Demavand Koh who are bounded in their own Karsh and remain within it and does not venture out of it for they are bounded in their natural functions of fighting against dark forces in nature relentlessly 24 x 7x 365 days throughout the year. That work is best done within the perimeters set by them and bounded by holy Karsh which are invisible to prying human eyes, and ordinary humans like us. They prefer to remain within Karsh and never venture out of it.

There were in past and even now in present who claim to have come in contact with holy Ashwan in polluted atmosphere of Cosmopolitan City like Bombay and who seem to have imaginary guided inspiration from Holy Ashwan saheb. But as per late Jehangirji Chiniwala Saheb as he had written in past that such a person’s claim seems to be false and he could have never had any contact with holy Ashwan Saheb but possibly could have come in contact with an “Arvahi” or Djinn who can easily fool a person into a belief. For such a Djinn has unimaginable powers and today’s science is like a child’s play for them.

An entity known as Djinn also called as “Arvahi” in Khshnoomic parlance can live with humans without us knowing of its true identity. A True incident of Djinn in Aligarh Muslim University is given below and narrated in Gujarati in above mentioned Parsee Avaz by Dinshaw Cawasji Sidhwa of Udwada. I have in my own way translated the article from Gujarati in free flowing English using the first person narrative of the original author. This article had appeared first in “Kismet” Monthly Magazine but was initially and originally written in “The Intermediate College Magazine Aligarh” by Mr M. A. A. Hami. Mr Hami the Original writer had written as to how one Mr. Akhtar Imam Razvi had narrated about his true experience. Such a story seems to be lifted out and out from Persian Nights, Arabian Nights, or Chinese tales. These seemingly appearing fairy tales or folk lore’s which many of us refuse to believe in it are quiet natural as we are living in different period of time frame. But that does not justify of its non-existence, and the fast lifestyle that we are leading only takes us further away from the truth. It is but natural that one would doubt such a thing as possible in age of Gizmos and Gadgets and is logical question a critic would ask these days. But lo behold we have plenty of surprise in stores for us. It does not mean that what we cannot see and understand is not possible in nature. For these Djinn are Masters of many Sciences and are far too advanced creatures. Their elementary body constitution is different than a human being and they try to take help of humans for they too have to evolve spiritually. Man is the best creation of God almighty for it is through Mankind only that this earth will achieve its Salvation. Frashogard of Humanity = Frashogard of Earth, which is a long distant event but nevertheless will definitely occur in very long distant future. During the times of Paigambar saheb when these Djinn were at their meanest best and the mother earth’s soul Geush Urva lamented the torture she had to endure by the evil nature of Arvahi, our Paigamber saheb sealed all the entrances on this earth and defeated these evil Djinns to submission. Earth became free from their evil clutches. But now today with humans inclining towards evil ways some of these Arvahis are set loose by evil deeds of mankind, although they cannot be so rampant as the times before advent of Paigamber saheb. There are two types of Djinn or Arvahi. 1) Ulvi 2) Sephli. Ulvi arvahi does not harm anybody but Sephli Arvahi are evil in nature. In short a Zoroastrian is not supposed to have any association or take any help from both types of Djinn or Arvahi for many reasons. The main reason, they do not help us for free as we have to give it back with tax what we have taken from them and that will put hurdles in our spiritual progress for they dwell in lower planes. To repay them we have to wait in lower planes for eons of years in company of hovering sprits which is not a very good experience, where as we Bastekustian Zarathustis have to move much further up towards Chinvat, and beyond which is our original dwelling place. The above brief explanation is necessary for readers to understand the meaning of Arvahi or Djinn.}

A true incident of a Jinn living amongst humans.- Part 1
By Dinshaw Cawasji Sidhwa (Udwada)

Now coming back to our main article which was narrated by Mr. Akhtar Imam Rizvi in Kismet Monthly Magazine. Mr Akhtar along with his friend Rafeuddin were batch mates studying together in famous Aligarh Muslim University in Intermediate College level. Mr Akhtar was staying with his Maternal uncle in the city, where as Rafeuddin was staying in hostel of Aligarh Muslim University. They had within their friend circle some six to seven class mates along with them. Rafeuddin was known as Rafu within his friend circle. Rafu and Akhtar got acquainted with each other during college days and were like closed knit friends knowing each other’s families also. Mr Akhtar was originally from “Hazaribaug” whereas Rafu was originally from a place known as “Aara” Rafu and Akhtar being very close to each other took part in college sports together. Akhtar was more inclined towards western ways of lifestyle which Rafu showed his dislike towards western ways of lifestyle, and was more comfortable with eastern ideas. Together Akhtar and Rafu passed B.A. University exams, and enrolled their names together for further studies in law. Akhtar noticed that his friend staying in university hostel had a clean and sparklingly tidy room was very finicky about cleanliness surrounding him, and wore sparking clean clothes. He lived in holy atmosphere and the ambience within his hostel room was holy and was surprisingly draped everything with green colour. He had in his room all famous personalities’ photo frames which were covered in green frames. Rafu was obsessed with Green colour, even his window frames, bed frames his Sherwani clothes were all green in colour.

One day when Akhtar went to Rafu’s hostel room for greeting him he was sitting in a depressed mood. Akhtar asked Rafu the reason for his depression and he replied that the very reason for which he was reticent about his father was persistent and indicated that his son Rafu should get married and settled in life soon. His father had written to him in letter that he should marry within this month only. Rafu asked Akhtar not to disclose this small secret to anybody as he will take sick leave for fifteen days from the Principal of the Aligarh University and proceed to his home town of “Aara” for his weddings and will resume his college after the function is over within 15 days. He requested Akhtar to meet him at “Aara” next day and to book for himself Express train ticket for he has to be a witness to his marriage. Rafu requested Akhtar to do everything discreetly. After having taken Principal’s permission Rafu set for his home town “Aara” on that very day. The very next day Akhtar boarded four o’clock Express train and headed for “Aara” where he was to meet his best friend Rafu about to be married. Rafu was ready at “Aara” station to receive him. He had even arranged for a car ready to take Akhtar with his belongings to his place. The car moved along narrow streets and city road westwards towards country side where habitation of humans become scarcer till they reached a very secluded place where a lone bungalow stood on a vacant plot of land. Rafu got down from the car carrying Akhtar’s belonging and Akhtar followed him silently wondering where he is taking him to a lonely spot.

To Akhtar’s surprise Rafu lead him straight to a nearby Cave at a secluded spot. By this time Akhtar was falling short of patience and immediately inquired to rafu where he was leading him to. For surely this cave was definitely not the place where Rafu was supposed to get married as he did not see any trace of guests waiting for him in this secluded lonely spot. He inquired the whereabouts of marriage party and hustle bustle atmosphere that normally accompany a marriage party. Rafu pointed out towards the Cave and indicated with a gesture that they are supposed to go in a Cave where everything required for marriage is arranged in it. By this time Akhtar sensed that something was amiss and doubted Rafu’s sanity for leading him to a lonely secluded spot in front of a Cave.

Rafu’s eyes shone with eagerness for he knew the time had arrived for him to disclose to his close dear friend Akhtar, few facts of which he was ignorant of. Rafu told Akhtar not to be afraid of the cave and with a firm mind once and for all step in it. On seeing Akhtar’s hesitation Rafu blurted out to him that I am about to disclose a very personal secret to you. The very next moment Rafu with a serious face told Akhtar that my dear friend the time has arrived for you to know the truth which I am about to tell you. But you must promise me not to panic and hear what I have to say to you with a calm mind. After saying this Rafu immediately was immersed in his thoughts as he was searching for words to be said to his dear friend Akhtar. Rafu retorted next that “My dear friend Akhtar,I am a Djinn”. Akhtar Immediately after hearing what Rafu had said to him felt giddy and weak in his knees drop on the ground unconscious. What happened next was any body’s guess and when Akhtar regained his self and opened his eyes he saw that he was sleeping on a bed and surrounding him were many beautiful damsels. Akhtar doubted if it was not a dream and he bit his finger to know the truth. He later on was convinced that this was no dream of his but was a reality. He opened and closed his eyes for a few moments and the Damsels surrounding him began giggling at his funny gesture. At that particular moment Akhtar was not ready to accept what was happening to him and believed that his situation was similar to Abu- al-Hassan in fairy tales of Arabian Nights. In Arabian Nights Abu- al-Hassan too was at loss of words as to where he had arrived in some magic spot. With fear writ all over his face Akhtar remained where he was on the couch and shut his eyes tight not knowing what to do. Suddenly he felt a loving caress over his head, when he opened his eyes he saw Rafu standing before him. This made him all the more nervous and he shut his eyes again.

Rafu tried to make Akhtar at ease by pacifying him that he should not be afraid of him when he was pulling just a fast one upon him. He went on further that Akhtar was his guest and he his host. He further pacified and tried to reason out with Akhtar in hope of calming down from his fears. Rafu told him that he should not be afraid of him just because he is a Djinn. Aren’t stories of Jinn mentioned in their holy book of Koran. He said that Jinn does not harm or harass a person without any reason, nor does he cause death or injury to a person. Akhtar became a bit relaxed after knowing the intentions of Rafu was not to harm him. Akhtar immediately realized the surrounding around him and noticed decoration of intricate designs in the room. In one corner of the room was soft Iranian Cotton Dhurrie. Every item decorated in the room was unique and antique in nature with fragrance from various kinds of Attar its whiff spread throughout the many rooms. Akhtar felt as if he was transfixed in some other world as if he was cruising in the enchanted world of Maulana Halim Sharar and had just landed in world of fairy tales as described in “Firdosh e Bari”. The room in which Akhtar was laying on the couch its doors were ajar and immediately facing the open door was another room. Akhtar had a glimpse of other room from his couch and he immediately got the idea of the lifestyle and noble ways the Mughal Badshah used to live in such elegant Grandeur. Akhtar kept on observing the surroundings in awe and admiration.

Suddenly Rafu who was nearby told him that his father has not yet seen Akhtar and is very eager to meet him. He will be very happy to meet Akhtar so now he will introduce Akhtar to his father for which he had come all the way from Aligarh. Akhtar was led by Rafu to another room where his father was seated. Immediately on stepping in that room Akhtar noticed a senior person. His appearance was eye catching. He had long flowing beard, and hair shining like quicksilver and was covered from head to toe by a white dress, having medium size built, and eyes shining like amber and penetrative x-ray eyes that can scan a person and see through his heart. Above all his eyes were full of love and his face sparkled with intensity of childlike innocence and piety writ all over his face. be continued in Part 2
