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.
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:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Aquarius
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"

Afarsiyab was by Dharma belonging to Asere Roshni or white side of nature but by Karma he belong to Asere Tariki or dark side of nature. How can that be possible ??
That we have to understand first:-
Paigambar Saheb mission on Earth:-
Parsee Avaz 13.09.1959
Paigambar Saheb’s mission on this earth was to destroy the Dev’s and the havoc created by them on this earth which was so far kept in check by the “Poryotakesh Nar” and Nar Asho Abeds of Iran but now it had become too hot for them to handle the situation which seemed to go out of control. “Geush Urva” the soul of the earth cried out in pain for the saviour and thus it was time for Paigambar Saheb to descend on this earth. His other mission in the end was to destroy the heavy elemental clouds formed out of Dev’s misdeeds known as “Tur-Bara-Tur” which if unchecked and not destroyed had the potential to destroy this very earth from its existence. Yet another mission was to bind the fiend “Azidahak” on Mt. Demavand. Nature works on as per basic laws which are bonded by divine plan of “Ahunavarya” and that law is known as “Mazda-daat” law on which “Mazdiyansni Deen” is based upon in which all other deen that will come in future are accommodated within. This law of Mazdadat is the first and the primeval law and is also known as “Par-daat” or “Pesh-Daat”. And the Nar Asho doing selfless service under this law of Pardat or Peshdaat were considered as “Pardaat Dahyupat”. The Peshdadyan Dynasty was amongst the first and foremost dynasty that were dedicated in eradicating Devs and their Devyasni to tolerable level as much as they can within their limits. Such “Pardaat Dahyupat Nar” were very advanced souls whose first four Chakras allegorically known as “Mount Ushideren” or their crowning glory were so developed and advanced right from their birth as they had already attained their own salvation but had come down for different purpose. Hence they were born with “Kavem Kharenoh” and “Farreh Yazadi” Khoreh right from their birth.
Aryans, Un- Aryans and Turanians:-
As per divine science disclosed by Ilme Khshnoom we come to know that right from “Gayomard” times till Peshdad Dynasty Padshahs who descended they all had “Kavem Kharenoh” within them. The “Kavem Kharenoh” is khoreh belonging to Dadar Ahura-Mazda himself. This Kavem Kharenoh was possessed and lasted till all the “Zuh” or “Zav” Padshahs. Later on as time passed by changes were found and now from “Kaykobad” times though they also did possess Kavem Kharenoh but slightly of lower sheen and shine and that was known as “Kayan Khoreh”. Thus after Peshdad Dynasty, Kayan Dynasty superseded it.
Poet Firdausi’s narration in his Shahnamah is representation of exact facts during the times of Peshdad and Kayan Dynasty and is a valuable source of ancient Iranian history for us. Such was the greatness and nobility of Peshdad Vansh Dynasty that they had their jurisdiction to “Airi” as well as “Un-Airi” civilizations and ruled both with justice. Later on Aryan foothold on Un Aryan countries began to weaken because they began tilting to devs side and thus they were known as Turanians. Afrasiyab was a Turanian Padshah who did big Amal and took help of “Tur-e-Frangas” powers of dark forces of nature and with its help won the loyalty of Devs only to be sent for their slaughter in hands of Irani Padshahs Pelvans. Such was his way of working though in favour of Devs but in reality his inner will was for the dev’s destruction and eradicating them from surface of the earth. Thus Afrasiyab had a big job at his hand and he was made for that purpose only and that is for sending the Devs to their imminent destruction by them facing Invincible Pehlavan like Rustom and other Asho Nar.
Demand and Supply:-
In nature there was an urgent need or demand for destruction of Devs Juggernaut and keeping it into check till Paigambar Saheb arrives and Afrasiyab supplied the Devs to imminent destruction by sending them one by one to Pehelvan like Rustom and other Poryotakesh Nar of Iran. Thus Afrasiyab was serving white side of nature although apparently it seemed otherwise.
Jehan Pehelvan Rustom:-
Thus on one side were Turanians with Afrasiyab as its general and other side was Rustom of Iran lineage who was invincible for he had protection of “Seen Amru” Abed saheb. On right side of Rustom was protection of Sherevar Ameshaspand, on his left side was victorious Behram Yazad and thus he could never be defeated by anybody, and Dami Upman Yazad protection over his head by which Rustom Pehelvan can never be deceived by deceit of Dev or Pari and its evil magic spell spun like a web. He with his “Rakhsh” horse made a formidable champion of Iran which no Dev however powerful he may be can be of any match to him. Rustom was protected by talismanic leather Armour shield called as “BubreBayan” which was consecrated by King Jamshed himself in past and kept in safe place to be used later by Rustom Pehelvan.
“Seen-Amru Abed” guided Rustam to Alburz Mountains for bringing down Kai-Kobad who belonged to Faredun Padshah blood line or lineage and who possessed Kayan Khoreh also known Fareh Yazaty Khoreh. Kaikobad was thus made Dahyupat monarch of Iran hence forth.

Right from the beginning when this earth changed from Garodeman to Drujodeman when Devs and their devyasni created mayhem and destruction on this earth there was constant battle with Spenamino and Gehnamino and Turanians who were once brothers of Iran had a change of heart and thus they came on side of Devs and obeyed them. Thus the constant battle with Turanians and Iranians.
When face to face battle was about to begin with Afrasiyab on one side as Turanian general and Rustom who had to yet prove of his capability to lead Iran faced each other. Afrasiyab considered Rustam as a novice and underestimated his ability and thus brushed him off as a mere youngster.
Rustam and Afrasiyab Face off in battle
Rustam had been warned beforehand about Afrasiyab by “Zalezar” and he gives advice to Rustam to be careful of him in Shahnamah as below:-
Shavad Kuhe Ahan chu Darya e Aab
Agar Beshnavad naam e Afrasiyab
By merely hearing the name of Afrasiyab a mountain of steel will start shivering due to fright and melt into a sea of water.
Rustam with Kaviyani Zanda in hand and a huge army of Iranian accompanied by battle hardened knights like Pehlvan Mehrab, Nodar and Goshtohem equally distributed on his right and left side, and other seasoned warriors like Karan and Keshavan in centre as middle order accompanied by Dahyupat Kaikobad and Zalezar Pehelvan with war cry and battle drums straight away went into enemy within aiming for Afrasiyab himself. Rustam with his bare hands in one heave lifted Afrasiyab from his waist from horse and tried to drag him to Kaikobad Padshah. Afrasiyab realized that he was not dealing with an ordinary warrior but his Turanian army outnumbered Rustam and thus Afrasiyab manged to free himself from the vice like grip of Rustam Pehlvan.

Afrasiyab thanked his stars for being alive. He knew now he had to manage and keep himself alive and away from Rustam Pehelvan for he had other plan of sending Devs to Rustam and Iran and thus was ready for truce with Iran.
Now to know more about “Azi-Dahak” let us go back in Time Machine and have a peep in pre Rustam Era much before him when this earth was considered as heaven or “Garodeman” and Ahriman had not entered this earth:-
Reference:- Nikhiz Volume 1 Page 457
When this earth belonged to Garodeman of Aeryanem Vaej, Iran was spread on whole of earth. The scenario changed during the reign of evil King Zohak and this earth became Drujodeman. Before Zohak’s period Ahriman would enter on this earth like a thief but did not succeed in his evil intentions for he had no place to dwell on this Earth as whole earth belonged to Iranvaej, but Zohak with his evil intentions was able to turn Earth Chakras and thus allowed rule of Dev to succeed. Thus there was two types of rule on this earth 1) Drujo Deman 2) Aivi thrishwa of Garodeman. Shah Faredoon was only able to temporarily set check on it. This is amply and illustrated by Mythological description in Shah-Namah by Firdausi Tusi as Zohak set as prisoner on Mt. Demavand who is on verge of escape at dawn by sucking the iron shackles in which he was bound but at crack of dawn by crowing of Murg of sarosh Yazad he is bounded again. Thus Shah Faredoon puts his constant check on Zohak and his evil way.
The above Mithra is entwined in “Afrin Haft Ameshahspand” para 8 in our Afringan prayers complied by Rad Dasturan Dastur Adarbad Marespand and is as below:-
Avjayar damey Ahuramazda, va avashinad damey Ahriman …………Hamazor Aurvand koh, Hamazor Raevand Koh, Hamazor Meh-Parseen Koh, Hamazor Daemavand, Ke draavand Bivrasp Andar Aoy Basta Aestad…………..
Translation:- May there be increase manifold in the creations of AhuraMazda, may there be reduction manifold of the creations of Ahriman, may we attune to Mountains of AhuraMazda where Ashoi is practised and so is full of tranquillity over there. May we attune Hamazor to the mountains of Aurvand, Raevand , Meh-Parseen Koh, and Demavand Koh where that evil Ahriman with strength of ten thousand steeds is bonded in Demavand Mountains. Ten denotes perfection, but that was perfection in evil magic.

More about Shah Faredoon and Azidahak:-
Reference:- Parsee Avaz 13.09.1959
To understand about Azidahak and its prevalence in this universe is very difficult for us to grasp. This physical earth is made up of 4 elements. The purpose of existence of this Universe is to alchemize and make these 4 elements very subtle first, then it has to be converted first into “Gav-Avo-Mand” and lastly converted to pure Light or “Noor”. “Azi Dahak” tries to prevents this alchemization process of turning 4 elements to Noor. That’s his job because he is agent of Ahriman. His main aim is to further fan these passions lying dormant in our physical body into unholy activity thus preventing alchemizing process in humanity of converting 4 elements to Noor. Thus Azi-Dahak is co worker of Satan due to which ten vices are born. Number Ten denotes perfection, but unfortunately it is perfection of vices. Diagonally opposite force of “Thretaun” which belongs to white forces of “Spenamino” in nature opposing this evil “Azi-Dahak” force. Zohak Padshah was unfortunately the worshipper of these Azi-Dahak force in nature. Shah Faredoon possessed this “Thretaun” force of Spenamino within him.
From our extant Avesta prayers it can be proved that Shah Faredoon used to invoke this “Thretaun” forces of Spenamino with the help of Amal invoking blessing of Avan Yazad and Gosh Yazad. Shah Faredoon, his ancestory and importance of his “Kuniyat” is noted down in our din as blessings of white side of nature, where this Padshah has by amal of Asishvangahu invoked and created a link “Paivand” of Asha in this Kuniyat.
In Ram Yasht there is a mention of Kavirintem Drujitano which is highest form of Azi Dahak force and King Zohak made use of this dark forces by invoking spells of Agha Mantra which was visible in form of evil bird flying in the sky. Shah Faredun with his mighty powers was able to capture this Kavirintem Drujitano but such an act of his took heavy toll on Shah Faredun which cost him loss of his eye sight…………. Ref:- Parsee Avaz 13.9.1958
Note:- The actions of ordinary humans done is known as “Kerdar” which meets us at Chinvat pool after our death. Whereas gigantic actions and deeds of padshahs and Poryotakesh Nar that aids and helps white side of Nature throughout long stretch of time are known as “Kuniyat.” Thus even today from this Kuniyat built by Shah Faredoon which is ever present in “Mino Gaas” built by Paigambar Saheb which helps the white side of nature in their ever tussle against dark forces in nature. This Kuniyat Built by Shah Faredoon is known as “Afsun-e-Shah Faredoon” which we pray in form of Nirang as an Amal of Manthra, because the victory giving Kuniyat of Shah Faredoon Talesam is ever present in “Mino Gaas” built by Paigambar Saheb.
Afsun-e- Shah Faredun:-
Today we have with us prayers of Afsun-e- Shah Faredun which is very effective because it receives its powers from already built Kuniyat of Shah Faredoon ever present in Mino Gaas of Paigambar Saheb. Shah Faredun fathers name is “Athavyan” as can be found in our Avesta prayers. As per Ilme Khshnoom the other name of “Athavyan” ( Avesta) which can be found in Shah Namah of Firdausi Tusi is known as “Aatbin” who was son of Jamshed. So lineage goes like this- Jamshed his son - Atbin or Athavyan( Av.) - his son Faredun. The spiritual status of Athavyan as a Naar was immense, and he managed to create huge kerdar ( Not Kuniyat) of Gaav which had Keherp of Faresta within. The names of kerdar of Athavyan of varied intensity is given below:- 1) RamakGav e Athavyan 2) Jifargav e Athavyan 3) Spetgav e Athavyan 4) Rayagav e Athavyan 5) Borgav e Athavyan 6) Saokgav e Athavyan 7) Purgav e Athavyan 8) Kerdargav e Athavyan 9) Nayok Gav e Athavyan. Such was the immense strength of Gav possesed by Athavyan but who was ultimately killed by the hands of Zohak. Faredun who was the youngest son of Athavyan was reared in Alburz ranges of high mountains who will later with help of “Kaveh Ahangar” defeat and kill Zohak.
More about Aryans, Un- Aryans and Turanians:-
Cont’d From Nikhiz Vol. 1 Page 457 onwards:-
The reigns of Shah Faredoon’s sovereignty was handed over and divided with three of his sons namely Eruch, Salem, and Tur. The Devs when they were unable to get strong hold on this Earth they played dirty as is their true Characteristic trait and tempted two of his sons namely Salem and Tur on their side by teaching them Adha Manthra and powers associated with it thus converted them on their side. Thus 2/3rd of this earth became of Drujo-Deman and 1/3rd which was before of Aar- Mithra of white side ( Aar= Straight) were now belonging to Turya-Mithra. The Devs managed in their game plan to divide and spoiled the Manashni of humans. Grave discord set in amongst human kind. Thus what was before constant tussle between Aryans and Un-Aryans now changed over and now in the un-Aryan group those Aryans who had now been converted on side of Devs became known as “Turya-Aryans” or “Turanians” who now fought against Aryans who were once their own brothers. The Turanians began succeeding because the revolt was from within. Nine Herculean attempts were made in their tussle between the two groups of Aryans and Turanians. In the first instance Eruch one of sons of Shah Faredoon was slaughtered by treachery so Fardoon was grieving loss of his favourite Son Eruch. That was victory for Devs, and Sovereignty of Aryans were weakened, and Devyasni proliferated rapidly after Eruch’s death, which needed to be put in check. This was done by “Minocheher” which turned the battles in favour of Aryans. But in the third attempt Devs again through Turanians managed to have a upper hand. That was the time when Afrasiyab was around. PoryoTakesh Naar of “Sam-e-Savar” Khandan with great difficulties managed to keep Devs under check. Even Afrasiyab himself was inwardly afraid of growing influence of Devs being victorious at that time.
The Lineage of Poryotakesh Nar right from Gayomard the first man on this earth, Peshdadiyan Dynasty and Kayan Dynasty till before Paigambar Saheb descended on this earth for his mission can be seen from the Afrin e Haft Ameshapand prayer (Para 14) from Afringan prayers:-
Anoshe ravan Baad, Ravan e radan, Dasturan, Mobedan, Hervadan,………………. Anoshe Ravan baad, Ruvan e Gayomard, va Hushang, va Temurasp, va Jamshid, Fredun, va Minocher Bami, va hujobeh Tahmaspan, Kai-kobad, Kai-Kaoos, Kai-Shyavux, Kai-Khushru, Kai-Lohrasp, Kai-Vistasp
With help of Kai-Vistasp Padshah Paigambar saheb spread deen by repairing Mazdayasni deen and called it as Mazdayasni Zarathusti deen
Ref:- Pazend Series No 1 By Ervad Phiroze S. Masani Page 34 to 36
Afrasiyab took sweet Revenge on the Devs:-
Now Afrasiyab realized the folly of two sons of Faredoon Tur and Salem who changed sides in favour of Devs and remained in constant Mithra that the Sovereignty of the Devs do not increase any further and wished defeat in their every nefarious deeds. The Turanians who considered Devs as their new Masters created such Havoc with Agha manthra, Black Magic evil spell, concocted Deceit that Afrasiyab found difficult to face them and defeat them. Nor did the Iranians have any full proof plan to negate Devs in their own game plan. Hence Afrasiyab realized the futility in openly siding with the Iranians against the juggernaut of Devs. He decided to have his own “sweet revenge” against Devs by posing as a well-wisher of Devs and Turanians. That was his real purpose for which he was born and nature had made him for that only. Just as Satan can be subjugated by Ghenamino because after all Ghena is a Mino meaning servant serving Dadar Ahura Mazda doing the dirty work of exhuming evil dev and their dirty intentions out of hiding in their Dens. That is tempt the Devs into committing sins by posing as their friend but in reality helping white side of nature of bringing the devs out in the open and their nefarious deeds to consequences. In the same way Afrasiyab with the help of “Tur e Frangas” powers to tempt the evil devs into crossing its limits of evil deeds and thus making it as a spent force and making it impotent and side by side bringing them to consequence of divine justice befalling upon them. All this happens because of law of Limit and Justice operating in nature. Once the evil crosses its limits justice sets in and prevents it going any further.
“Ture e Frangas” powers that Afrasiyab used in aiding and abetting the Sephli Arvahis entities or aliens who spinning web of deceit and their black magic created havoc on earth and thus came out of hiding from their safe hideouts. Thus they were exposed to “Roshan Zamir” of Abeds who thus decimated Devs asunder to pieces. Thus this earth works on Principal of “Skerenyao” liked a screw thread which appears to go inside but in reality the screw is coming out. Thus spreading order out of Chaos, because after all dark forces of evil however strong it may be but is always a shade smaller than white forces. Thus Afarsiyab sacrifice his own progress and himself becomes an active member of the devs and being party to their crimes committed seeming to appear as true friend of the Dev, but in reality he was helping Spena by giving him chance of being a task master for the devs, thus converting Satan and his evil to “Gaavyodad”. All this happens in full acknowledgement through Zarathustra and “Thworestar” Yazad as medium or through their “Marefat”. But Afrasiyab made two grave mistakes due to the fact that he was associated and hand in glove with the Devs, even in reality he was opposing them. That mistake was he killed by treachery Nar Asho Agreras, and Shyavax Nar Asho. Ref:- Parsee Avaz 30.08.1959

Note for Payu Thworestar Yazad:-
“On every day different Yazad functions on this earth working in different way and that is purpose of us saying Roj Nek nam Roj pak naam in all our prayers and they work for alchemizing the Dravao through Payu and Thworestar. A human who is tempted by Angramino sins and thus he receives judgement and is condemned for his Sins This way his druj gets converted to Gav and he moves towards Spenti. Thus Ruvan’s Spenti is developed by Yazat known as Thworeshstar, and Payu checks and prevents the Ruvan in degrading himself from Spenti earned. Thus all Yazats working every day in different way have common objective serving as “PayuThworeshtar” Yazad, and this is known as Humata- Hukhata- Havarshta of Yazata, having Keherp filled with Rai.”
Thus Afrasiyab sacrifices his own progress and becomes party to crimes of Dev, and thus gives opportunity to Spena to convert Druj to spenti by converting Satan to Gavyodad. Afrasiyab becomes so involved with the Devs by his support that he became himself became a Magician so proficient in black Art himself. Although he covered himself up never allowing his true intentions to be known to Dev. But day and Night Afrasiyab inner thoughts or Batein Mithra were inclined towards Roshni, and contemplating how to destroy Devs and their barbaric ways. Hence even offsprings of Afrasiyab were of very high Buniyad or seed having Yazadic characteristic traits of Son Grandeur than his father in all his skills or “Baap karta Beto savayo”. Afrasiyab being related to Iran Monarch Kekhushroo Padshah having Kayan Khoreh. Hence Afrasiyab by Dharma belonged to Asere Roshni but by Karma belonged to Asere Tariki or darkness. By making Devs so self-confident in their evil plan that they came out in open and got caught offgaurd thus Devs getting exposed before Poryotakesh Rathestar Naar of Iran, so were decimated and hunted down one by one.
The secret of imminent success in favour of Poryotakesh Nar was the surprise element and the right moment in nature for the attack against Devs which gave them a upper edge towards their destruction. Thus reasonable balance was maintained and even if they were unable to subjugate the Devs completely surely they were not allowed to proliferate any further.
Thus after victory of Minocheher against Devs, Iran made a hasty retreat twice and they seemed to be losing the grip in their battle against Devs. But fourth time victory was in favour of iran thanks to battle hardened warrior leader by the name of “Auzoebey”. Iran became once again victorious against Devs, and Afrasiyab had to back off.
The fifth time again the devs were victorious or so it seemed and Afrasiyab had a upper hand against Iran. Only to be subjugated sixth time against Kersasp Phelevan but not before death of their valient Rathestar “Nozer”.The Devs and their Turanians supporters were at the top of world feeling with their Sorcery and black Magic spreading everywhere. But Iran not lagging behind refused to accepting defeat. At that time the Poryotakesh Nar regrouped and this time Abeds came to the rescue of Iran and thus Rathestars Nar received a divine boost in their strength against every cunning tricks adopted by Devs. Abeds like “Seemurg” and “Hom” as is described in Shah namah epic came to the rescue of Poryotakesh Naar. At that time “Kaiykobad” Padshah of Kyan Khoreh ascended the throne of Iran , But again the Devs seemed to have an upper hand against Iran. This scale of balance seemed to tilt in favour of Iran when “Kaikaoos” of Kyan Khoreh became the Monarch. During the third Monarch “Kaikhushroo”having kyan Khoreh again the balnce titled in favour of Devs and thus was the time of Paigambar Saheb to descend. It was Kaikhushroo Padshah saheb who was allotted the benevolent powers necessary as tools “ Auzar” for Farshokereti.

“When ever Devyasni increases to intolerable limits on earth, Kaikhushru Padshah Saheb is authorized by Paigambar Saheb to keep Devyasni under check with his special powers known as “Auzar“ = tools. These Auzar can be in any manner be it Monetary wealth in gold hiden in Talesmanic place to fight Devs or required Khastar that is hidden in Talesam is made available by Kaikhushroo Padshah saheb to fight Devyasni to be used in right time in nature. Special manpower divinely connected are needed for the protection of Talesam and Kaikhushroo Padshah Saheb is in charge during such difficult times. In all this battles with Iran and Turanians Afrasiyab was very much involved in his special task of bringing the devs into open only to be systematically killed by Rathestar Nar. Note:- In very near future during times of Shah Behram Varjawand Kaikhushroo Padshah will play his part, that is why his name is said in Tandarosti prayers.”
Reference:- Nikhiz Volume 1 Page 561 onwards
Paigambar Saheb who is also known as “Ahura na Zarathustra” descended on this Earth to spread message or “Paigam” of AhuraMazda and thereby making him happy. The “Tevishi”= wish of Ahura pertains to “Khsnothra AhuraheMazda”. And to set that Tevishi in motion “Kaam Anjam”, Paigambar Saheb had to descend on this earth so that he can keep a check on augmenting powers of Ahriman and the Devs along with humans known as Turanians aiding and abetting them. “Khoda Paak Iran” with Rathestar Poryotakesh Nar were performing this duty upto now but they too seemed to be not very effective in curtailing Devs and their ever growing mayhem they created on this earth. The confusion of the Devs had to be cleared and certain Balance or “Putman” had to be achieved and too much of excess and too much of deficieny had to be brought to balance. For that purpose no less than a soul or calibre of Zarathustra having Yazatic powers who can be also called as Neem Yazad had to show up, after the heart rendering appeal by Geush Urva or Earth’s soul to do something about it.
Zarathustra was co-worker or “Nayab” of “Bahman Ameshaspand” in Nisti which is not immortal like Hasti but is destined for destruction after its purpose is served for which Nisti was established. Thus Bahmand Ameshaspand is the Tevishi of Ahura in Hasti that attunes itself to “Khsnothra AhuraheMazda” vibration Mithra of Ahura. The main function of Bahman Ameshaspand is to live and let live which is Gospandi Mithra, so that Ahura is Happy “Khsnothra AhuraheMazda” and this happiness can spread everywhere in Nisti. Hence Zarathustra is called as Nayab of Bahman Ameshaspand. The spiritual progress of complete humanity can be achieved only through selfless service which is impersonated by “Gavyodad” the Godha of Kaikaoos Padshah having Kayan Khoreh. Ahriman is nothing else but an obstruction in developing Gav in a human being. Every human being does poses within himself Gaav powers which are untapped by us and lying latent within. But Ahriman with his weapon of “Kherdastard” places one veil after another towards Gaav powers dormant in human beings. When “Kherdastard” powers of Ahriman works than a human being commits Sin which he repents later. That is real meaning of Gavyodad Godha of Kai Kaoos Padshah having Kayan Khoreh.
A true nature of Selfless and Selfish person:-
Difference between Selfless Gaav or Gavyodad and Selfish “nature of Dev that can only lead to “Azangha”= Misery, is that we out of ignorance begin to attract Ushtan of other Ruvan instead of our own Ushtan hoping that we will gain fast by the addition of that other person’s Ushtan our path and approach towards Noor and progress fast to Frashokereti. This ignorance forces us to snatch things away from others for our own progress using short cut method.
Note:- This selfish nature of varying degree can be found in all humans in our daily chores we do every day. We all do see how we move in jam packed Traffic where even an inch of space is used and snatched from others for the benefit of the person in hope of reaching his destination faster. Our destination is Frashogard and not reaching our office for earning more income. Same case can be found in trains arriving at station and how we make a beeline for snatching a window seat.
The “Mashya” of evil mentality are under this dark spell of ignorance.The Evil powers of “Ture-Frangas” although side with Ahriman but in reality in the end Satan powers will get exhausted and dissolve. That is what is meant by “Skerenyao” effect meaning out of Chaos order will set in like a principle that governs moving of screw as explained above. Just like “Yim” and “Ghenamino” work in pair similarly Ture-Frangas( evil magician of demonolatry skills) and Satan which has been fed by Ture Frangas are two ends of same pole.
Reference:- Khordeh Avesta Ba Khshnoom By Dr Saheb Fararoze Chiniwala see Footnote on Page 107, & also pg. 386
Note for Mashya:-1) (Avesta) humans with ordinary knowledge on path of Frashogard 2) Insan/human however of goodness he may claim to have but yet if bereft of Asha force within him can also be called as Mashya 3) Humans who succumb to passions at the nick of time who are selfish and of materialistic kind can also be included in Mashya category.Hence there is a vast difference between Nar Ashwan and an ordinary Mashya like us.
Reference:- Nikhiz Volume 1 Page 434
Note for Yim:-
“There are three kind of Yim:- 1) The first Yim is that Yazatic powers which we try to attune the Fravashi of “Yim Shaeta” of Ahura the impersonal God which is like a sea of calm blackness which we cannot even imagine. That Yim does its own work of spreading Roshni in this Universe by working along with Ghenamino in pair and thus by reaching the ignorant soul to their inevitable consequence or “Anjam” using Law of Akem Akai.
2) The second Yim is that of Jamshed padshah himself as a Nar whose Ruvan pertains and belongs to this powers of “Yim Kshaeta” ever existent in Universe. This second Yim has been entrusted the constructive work to be done for the next Zarvaneh Daregho Khadat cycle of 81,000 years building a safe haven for those pairs of humans and animals bearing seeds of holiness that has to be rescued from last deluge and which has to be preserved for the next coming Zarvaneh Dareghkhadateh (Z.D.K). Thus this safe haven built by Jamshed is known as “Yimkard Var” or “Mainyavim Gaetha”which is also dwelling place of deceased ruvans which undergoes further training by holy masters in their quest for Frashokereti.
3) The third Yim belongs to Soshyosh Nar who descends at the time of floods or world Deluge that occurs at the end of every 81,000 years cycle of Zarvaneh Daregho khadateh and as is mentioned in other religious books as in Bible before deluge brings the best pair of humans and animals in pair “Noah’s Arch” to safety of high end mountain also known as “Yimkard Var” the Var belonging to Jamshed Padshah or “Varjamkard”.”
Now we continue after Skerenyao effect as explained above before small Note. The Khoreh of Paigambar saheb and Iranian Khoreh and their Ushtan prevents Satan in its path. Thus Ture Frangas co worker of Satan tries to plunder the good Ushtan of Iran and Zarathustra, this is very discreetly written as “Ramz” or coded in Zamyad Yasht.
Tur -e- Frangaz went all the way to Zareh Vourukash another divine protective sea surrounding this Earth and made three attempts to capture the Khoreh of Zarathustra but was unsuccessful, finally he decided to hide in vegetation. Avan Ardivisur Banu Yazad prevents and obstructs all the game plans of Ture Frangas.
All this Ramz are in Avesta prayers of Avan yasht. Avan yazad can grant boon to those who are true to himself and those who does Amal of Avan Yazad for 40 days. The Ramz of Avan Yasht says it all that it can grant wishes but the wish gets fulfilled only if the wish is reasonable lawful and not evil wishes asking for something that can be granted at all. Afrasiyab instead of asking for a boon from Hormuzd Yazad asks for boon from Avan Yazad hence many would consider Afrasiyab as idol worshipper but such is not the case. Afrasiyab demanded Khoreh of Paigambar saheb for his own personal use which Avan yazad could never agree to it for that would lengthen the Frashogard process longer. Hence Afrasiyab’s demands were unlawful and of selfish nature hence he was not granted the boon by Avan Ardavisur Banu.
Afrasiayab asking for boon from Avan Ardavisur Yazad only in vain:-
Reference:- Nikhiz Vol 1 Page 563
Hushang, Jamshed, Kersasp, Kaus Padshah they all performed big Amal of Avan Ardivisur Banoo Yazad and asked for boon from her wishing for 100 horses, 1000 horses, 10,000 small Gospand. That is allegorical machinery of divine Keherp having that much horse power of needed Gav which Avan Yazad obliged them with it for their face off and fight against Devs machinery. Even Hormuzd has been depicted as asking for the boon from Yazad of Abundance and fertility Avan Ardavisur Banu. Dadar AhuraMazda asked for the success of Zarathustra as governed by HIS will pertaining to Hom. Further describing Hom as like Hom Sali used as Barsam, Hormuzd wished success for Hom to be able to entwine around Gav like a Barsam and Hom sali. As per Daena also known as Conscience of Dadar Ahura Mazda where in lies Mithra of Spenti and Hom, that whole machinery Zarathustra be able to shoulder it with success, that was the Murad of Ahura Mazda and that boon was asked by Ahura Mazda from Avan Yazad which was granted.
Although Avan Yazad being Yazat of abundance and fertility will grant the boon only if the demands are lawful. Afrasiyab did Amal of Avan Ardavisur Banu for 40 days but his wish was not granted simply because of his unjust and unreasonable demands which were being driven by Tur e Frangas powers which works opposing Spenti forces and aspiring to rule the Nisti world with one Murad of destruction of it, which Avan Yazad does not grant his unreasonable demands. Afrasiyab’s wish was to control and plunder Khoreh of Paigambar saheb and khoreh of Iran and its Rathestar and thus make Ture Frangas victorious which was an impossible dream, dreamt by Afrasiyab.
Spenamino and Gehnamino continuous battle:-
There is an ongoing continuous battle in “Macro-Cosmic world” between Spenamino and Gehnamino which will last till Frashogard is reached when all evil will be transmuted to Gaav. “As above so Below”. Similarly we too in our tiny Microcosmic world in our body are at war within. Sometimes we listen to good intuition and some times we brush it off and lean towards evil thoughts and thus commit sin. But to listen to our voice of conscience we have to make ourselves available to have a ear to listen to our prick of conscience. And that is where our Deen gives us hope and Tarikats step in. The purpose of observing Tarikats of Ashoi is to sharpen our ability to hear prick of conscience and act accordingly. That is why Sudreh Kusti has been given to us as Bakhtar or shield. The Kusti is worn on our waist near navel which is 12th Chakra of Adar Froba Atash which is exhalted. But above that is 11th Chakra of intestines which is seat of our likes and dislikes, which is seat of all illness. Immediately below our 12th Chakra of Navel is the 13th Chakra of our genitals which is seat of Satan temptations. So a balance has to be achieved and constant battle going on in our body we have to fight our own battle even with failure we have to get up and walk towards our march to Farshokereti where our salvation lies.
“Nar Asho Frajand Jayad, Key Aeran darad, naam Barad, Dushman Janad, va dud afrojad, va Darud. Atha Jamyat yath afrinami”
May Nar Asho offsprings be born that can protect Iran for ever, and vanquish the enemies of Iran and may its lineage increase many times that will herald peace. May my wishes fructify into reality. Amin

The prayer of Afringan has its purpose. The Murad of Afringan:- Afringan prayers helps the Ruvan in such a manner that Ruvan with its gathered Rai through several births cycles is capable of understanding nature as much as his Rai is developed. Afringan prayers aides and helps the ruvan in that direction and sharpens his Kherad. Thus by conducting Afringan prayers Dadar Ahura Mazda and yazats showers upon us the much needed blessings so very essential to understand our role to be played in nature and our march to Frashokereti as a step in direction to perfection……….. Ref:- Parsee Avaz dated 26.12.1971 Page 4
Ref:- Parsee Avaz 11.04.1971 Page 4:-
Murad of Baaj and its purpose:-
Baaj, Ejashney, Vendidad are Pavmahal Kriya. But Baaj is Hushmordi and Paavmahal Kriya as well or it is the in-between link that joins both. By Baaj prayers the Vasna or undesired negative attraction the Ruvan has developed towards this Earthly attraction is broken or dissolved.
Farokhshi Kriya its purpose and Murad:-
When the Ruvan seperates from his Physical body at the time of death manifests itself slowly on upper part of “Kangdez” near Chinvat and resurrects itself forming similar Physical form as he had during his life time on earth but his form is of very subtle nature having divine wisdom and being enlightened true to nature and his own self. This resurrection of soul at Kangdez is known as “Vizvao Tanu” in Avesta, and in Pazend it is known as “Iristekhiz” or “Ristakhiz”stage of the Ruvan. It is due to this stage of Iristikhiz that Ruvan arrives at Chinvat and meets it Kerdar which elemental form erected out of his deeds on Earth, and by seeing his Kerdar he now realizes his past mistakes and thus develops “Kherad”. Hushmordi prayers of Farokhsi aids in building of Kherad at the time of Ristakhiz.
The Murad of Satoom Kriya and its purpose:-
The “Ajab” or the burden the Ruvan has to bear after his corporal death has to be lifted. Satoom Kriya helps him in relieving Ajab on soul.
Satoom No Kardo: Pages 725 to 727 Parsee Vegetarian and Temperance Society - PVTS Khordeh Avesta
This satoom prayers is taken from Yajashne Ha 26 and certain part taken from Fravardin yasht itself and is from ancient times this prayers of Sattom is a kriya by itself known as Gujrela Ruvan matey Satoom or Astam.
It is not to be prayed like Ruvan ni patet from start to finish. But like Afringan, Baaj and farokhshi Kriyas, Satoom too is an Aipi ni Kriya meaning it is better if you perform at home( satoom) where the deceased resided or in surrounding of his/her Aipi at home. In past when everybody were having faith on important Tarikat of segregation during menses their homes were pinnacle castles of Ashoi and hence such Aipi Kriyas were done in home only but now in absence of observation of such important tarikat such Aipi Kriyas are done in Agiary. With every Kriya performed its Keherp and its Farsehta is manifested if done properly soul is benefitted and its beneficial effects befalls on the Kerdar or elemental formed by deeds of soul when he was alive on earth.
The items necessary for conducting this Kriya is as follow:-Satoom prayers to be done away from Juddins sight and earshot in a pure place selected at home by spreading Setranji and placing Atash Afarganyu over it and side by it a metal elevated tripod stand known as “Anni” and a Khumcha over Anni is placed where home cooked food like Rotli Milk and water kalasyo and simple food and a bit of Fruit Mava is put in a clean washed Khumcha. Caution:- No Non – Veg food should be put in the Khumcha. In olden days at the foot of “Anni” a plate with a small morsel of food is kept reserved for the house pet or the dog known as Kutra no Buk. Wear padan. After satoom kriya is over do Loban and then give morsel from plate to the dog for eating it. The cooked food in satoom should be consumed by family members and holy water in kalasyo poured in plants . If no plants then that holy water can be spilled in Umbar of house. This satoom kriya can be prayed in any Geh and on Rojgar of the deceased at home or on Fravardin Roj. Because it is Kriya for dead. Note:- 1) Ahmai Rascha,2)Part of Jasme Avengah Mazda, and 3) Kerfeh Mozda should not be prayed and has to be skipped. Jasme Avengeh Mazda can be prayed from start Jamse avengeh Mozda, Jasme avengeh Mozda, Jasme avengeh Mozda, ameh utashtey Hurodeh……till ………vanantyaoscha Upartato. (The inbetween line of Ramno Khastraeh…………….till……… yat te asti spento-Maenyoem should not be prayed and omitted.) The last line ……..Thvashe Khadatey, Jarvaney akarney, Zarvaney Darego Khadateh Ashem Vohu 1 has to be prayed in the end.
Patet Ravan Ni: Pages 632 to 642 PVTS Khordeh Avesta
What is necessary for us to know is when a Ruvan ni Patet can be done and when it should be avoided, and the benefits of such prayers.
1) Before last moment of a person dying the Mithra of Patet has to be recited and continuos Ashem Vohu has to be recited in ears of the person.
2) From the moment the person expires till Charam Bamdad when the Ruvan reaches Aval- Manzal in those 3 days one should never do Patet for the Ruvan
3) After Charum on daily basis every day the Farman dictates that Ruvan Ni Patet has to be done for as many years as you can.
4) Every year during Bar vakt Fasli Farvardegan first 10 days Ruvan ni Patet should not be done at all.
Now we go further in details of Ruvan Ni patet:-
1) As per our Mazdayasni Zarathosti Deen just before a Ruvan is about to die during his last breaths are in progress known as “Dam- hafa”, then a Divo batti of Ghee Koprel has to be done immediately and Atash in a small receptacle afarganyu has to be done, and family Panthaki has to be immediately notified for the services of a Mobed known to the family does a sarosh ni kusti, or normal Kusti followed by sarosh Baaj the powerful prayers of Ashem Vohu has to be recited continuously in ears of the person about to die during process of his breathing till the last moment. This can be done immediately by family members themselves before the Mobed arrives. This is very essential as the dying person gets much needed relief and is comforted. At that time the dying person sees before him the cinematographic visuals of his immediate present incarnation and one previous past life incarnation that is last two life incarnations where he has committed all sins of Commission or Omission. This praying of Ashem Vohus till his last breath is purpose or Murad achieved by this process, which should be the solemn duty of every bastekustian towards the ruvan. That this Ruvan receives salvation and release from his past sins is the Mithra to be done by reciting Ashem Vohu’s till the last breath of the Ruvan.
In olden times the Mithra that were done during the process of dying person that Mithra is conspicuous by its absence presently. Knowing well that the present days Generation will be unable to do the required
Mithra at the time of last breadth of a dying person, our Last rainidar Adarbad Marespand complied the present day Ruvan ni Patet with the original Mithras entwined in present Patet prayers we have with us which
is in Pazend Prayers. Hence the extensive list of sins present in Patet prayers that the Ruvan may have done in all of his past reincarnations and the dua for his release in patet prayers. This tradition of doing
Mithra at the time of death which is followed now by reciting Patet is now what we know as tradition of “Akhyanu Bharvu”. In this custom before any sad incident of a family member passing away when his/her
end is near then a family Mobed is intimated before hand and whole wheat is paced and Patet is recited by the mobed in the house. Even this Custom of “Akhyanu Bharvu” with Ashem Vohu prayers is long
2) But the moment a person dies, the ruvan goes through visuals of only his present immediate life that he has passed from it all at once. This visuals of his deeds in his immediate last life incarnation he keeps on seeing it again and again till third day Ushehen Geh. That is from the moment a person dies till last 80 minutes left of Ushehen Geh on the third day or Roj the Ruvan is in Neem-Hosh or semi-conscious state. ( For example Ruvan expires on Behram Roj at 0630 pm in evening so his third day will be 1)Behram Roj, 2)Ram Roj and finally 3) Govad Roj Ushehen Geh). That is the time period when (last 80 minutes of Ushen Geh) his Patli Ratnu Uthamnu is conducted on the 3rd Day Ushehen Geh( on Govad Roj as per example). On “Charum ni Hoshbam” which is the dawn of the fourth day or “Havan ni Hoshbam” that is 36 minutes before Sunrise of Daepdin Roj the ruvan will set on his journey to thresholds of Chinvat Pool and it is at the time that is 36 minutes before sunrise on Daepdin Roj (as per the example), Daham Yazad nu Afargan is conducted. The Ruvan which has been all throughout his physical world existence has been in deep slumber known as “Bund Darosh” or shackles of imprisonment in physical body is now slightly awake but in very drowsy state, in semi wakeful state and is known as “Neem- Hosh”. In this Neem-Hosh state Ruvan through Blue coloured subtle thread like connection gets attracted towards his past deeds circling round his dead physical body. One should note that the Ruvan in its fully alert and wakeful state is capable of seeing all his past incarnations but because it is in semi wakeful state or Neem-Hosh sees only last two incarnations visual scenes one after another like a slide show.
Reference:- Sharuatna Char Divaso ane tyar Pachi karvama avti Kryao – By Ustad Saheb Behramshah Shroff and Dr saheb Faramroze Chiniwala Page No 6.
Note:- Whatever may be the time of death recorded for the Ruvan the Keherp of the ruvan destined to die on that day begins to ooze out from Thumb of his foot from Bamdad or Hoshbam at Sunrise time. If he is a male then Keherp begins to Ooze out of his right Toe thumb and if Female Keherp starts oozing out very slowly at Sunrise time from her left Toe thumb of the foot. So for all practical purpose the Rojgar day as in our example is sunrise of Behram Roj even though time of his death is at 0630 pm in the evening on Behram Roj. So full Behram Roj is counted as his first day, 2nd day is Ram Roj and 3rd Day is Govad Roj and his Ratnu Uthamnu is conducted on Govad Roj Ushehen Geh and Daham nu Afringan conducted on Daepdin Roj Havan Geh in Havan ni Hoshbam that is 36 minutes before Sunrise.
At that delicate time that is moment of actual death when he breathes his last till last 80 minutes of Ushen Geh on his third day after death is the critical time period when Ruvan is in confused state of “Neem- Hosh” or very much in drowsy state, and not in wakeful alert state. Thus Patet prayers should not be done at all during that period as it will be wasted and of no use to the Ruvan due to its semi-conscious state of Neem-Hosh. Today Patet has been mandatorily prayed during this stage even though technically speaking it should not be done at all in this time frame. However it does not make any difference whether you pray Patet or not at that above mentioned time frame, for the Ruvan is not benefitted nor affected if patet prayers at that time. Best is to avoid Patet prayers at that time.
3) But the moment Amal of Pad- Ruz has started that is period starting from Havan ni Meher on dawn of the Fourth day or Charum that is 36 minutes before Sun rises when daham Yazad nu Afringan is conducted the Ruvan has become very alert and in full Hosh. That is time of Hoshbam when Ruvan sees all his previous incarnations and those scenes revolve in circle around him. When Ruvan is in full Hosh also known as “Hoshedar”, it is from time onwards after Charum that Ruvan Ni Patet can be prayed as many years as is possible. Because the Mithra of Patet becomes very useful for the Ruvan in his onwards journey and performs penitence and Ruvan ni Patet helps him a lot.
4) Except every year during Bar- vakt Fasli Farvardegan first 10 days Ruvan ni Patet should not be done at all. Because it is at that time of the year that Ruvan stops his own personal penitence only to help Mother Nature “Pro-Bono Publico” for the welfare of entire humanity and as a team aiding and in their work of dissolving “Kshafan” or dark elementals accumulated in the whole year and surrounding the earth. These Ruvan assist and help the selfless holy Fravashis known as “Ashaunam Fravashyo” and “Ashaunam Fravashyo ni Tufel ma” ( Tufel= under their guidance or in their “Panah-Poshi”) who are very hopeful for Kriyas from us and thus descend on this earth. But they descend not anywhere on this earth but in “Aivi-Thrishwa” which is encircled in holy Karsh away from the polluted world and mankind. These Ruvan themselves though may not have attained complete salvation and are destined for re birth but they help Ashaunam Fravashis during Bar Vakat Farvardegan 10 days= “Dus Pairi Khshafan” and by kriyas done by its relatives hope for their release from shackles of re births. But those Ruvan who with help of their own Tarikats performed during their earthly physical stay on this earth find it very easy to proceed towards “Dadare Gehan” in South Direction and get maximum benefit of performed Kriyas by their relatives. It is in those 10 days of Bar vakat na Fravardegan when the Ruvan themselves are busy in helping Ashaunam Fravashis in their work forget all about their own salvation is not in keeping with the Mithra of Patet for his own salvation. Hence during that time of Bar Vakat Farvardegan Ruvan Ni Patet should not be prayed.
Except for the above two instances namely 1) during first three days after physical expiry or last Breath and 2) During 10 days of Bar Vakat nu Farvardegan till last day of Fasli Vahishtoisht Gatha when Ruvan Ni Patet should not be prayed. Although It can be prayed daily and at all times especially in the end of Anusheh Ruvan nu Afringan when Ruvan ni Patet is done. This was done in old times by our ancestors but like many things forgotten this too is a forgotten practice. In such a case the relatives may themselves perform Ruvan Ni patet after Afringan Prayers are over. This Ruvan ni Patet can be done at all days especially in Aivisuthrem Geh after our farajat prayers like Atash Niyaesh followed by Sarosh Yasht Vadi of Ruvan followed by Ruvan Ni Patet in the end.
As explained in Satoom prayers above over here too in Patet Ruvan Ni - 1) Ahmai Rascha,2)Part of Jasme Avengah Mazda, and 3) Kerfeh Mozda should not be prayed and has to be skipped. The Ramno Khastrahe till spento Mainyoem line has to be omitted in Jasme Avengeh Mazda as shown above.
Patet Pashemani: PVTS Khordeh Avesta Page 604 to 605 and Pages 607 to 615
This Patet Pashemani prayers should be prayed in the end after all our Avesta Farajyat prayer as it is in Pazend. But if one wants to continue any other Avesta Prayers after Patet Pashemani prayers then Patet should be prayed in Baaj/ Bista or in hush tone. Except for one or two para which are in Avesta full Patet is in Pazend. In Olden times Patet was prayed along with Mithra so it is better for us to see translations from Cawasji Eduljee Kangaji’s Khordeh Avesta and try to pray with translation. For in Patet prayers itself in 5th Kardo it is a sin to pray prayers without its meaning – Avesta pach manashni na Goftan. Even a rough idea and meaning of important words suffice us whilst praying our Farajyat.
Dasturan Dastur Adarbad Marespand Saheb has tried to imbibe in his Pazend Patet prayers word that are in use in our Avesta prayers. For example Farestuye in Avsta its Pazend alternative owrd is Fraj Satayem
Avesta word Humatoibyashcha pazend word for it is Harvespa Humata and so on ………….
Pazend prayers is carbon copy derivative from Avesta, not Avesta by itself but very much connected with Avesta, also known as Farsi- Pehlvi. How dasturan Dastur Aderbad Marespand Saheb has compiled Pazend prayers from Avesta its glaring example is sited as below:-
Marespand Saheb has compiled 30 Roj ni Setayesh in Pazend. Not many of Yasht Niyaesh are with us in Avesta as they are lost but the original Mithra of all 30 Yazads and Ameshaspends can be found in these 30 Roj ni Setayesh in Pazend and is compiled by Aderbad Marespand Saheb. What is taught in Khshnoom is that in nature Stoat Yasna rules are ever present. We have Dadar Ahura Mazda, Ameshaspand, Yazats, and as per divine Ahunavar plan their “Thoughts, Words and Deeds” are classified as Humata- Hukhata- Havarashta in Nature which becomes very useful to run the machinery of nature and the Universe itself is directed towards one common goal of Farshogard which is its main objective. Our Paigambar saheb has compiled 21 Nasks in Avesta language which can be spoken by a Human being in form of Prayers out of nature’s thoughts words and deeds which are known as Humata- Hukhata- Havarashta. It can be further simplified that there are numerable Languages spoken in the world and if a song or spoken words of any language is recorded on record and if played back again it works on one universal language based on science of vibrations and known as Stoat Yasna which creates one type of feeling or inspiration no matter whatever language it is spoken of or sung. Stoat Yasna which can be called as Yazatic language which our Paigambar Saheb has through his divine eyes and Asneh Kherad recognized it as prevalent everywhere in nature. He with his divine eyes and ears compiled Avesta prayers and 21 Nasks from the Stoat Yasna in nature. Ahunavar can be called as Blue print plan of Cosmogenesis also known as divine Will of Dadar Ahura Mazda on which our Universe is made and is composed of 21 words of yatha Ahu vairyo. Each word can be allotted to one of the 21 Nasks and is as per Stoat Yasna.
After Paigambar saheb has accomplished his mission in the world he has organized and appointed Rainidars who will come in future and who will recompile the Prayers keeping in mind the Karmic nature of the human kind incarnating at that time. Rainidar meaning Soshyant e Zaman dar Zaman and Adarbaad Marespand Saheb was our last Soshyant so authorized by Paigamber Saheb who has through Stoat Yasna recompiled our present prayers of Zend Avesta and Pazend prayers. Thus Pazend is copy of our old Zend Avesta all based on Stoat Yasna existing in nature. Never mind if we do not have whole Avesta as we had in the past but Pazend prayers we have in form of 30 Roj ni Setayesh amply describes in a Nutshell the substance in lost orginal Yashts and the working of all Yazads, Ameshaspands and Dadar Ahura Mazda himself.
All original Mithra existing in Avesta was taken into consideration and thus in Pazend language Aderbaad Marespand saheb poetically composed Afrins and patet prayers. Due to which gist of all our kriyas are based in these Pazend prayers.
In Kadmi prayers books one can find more Pazend prayers than we can find in Shahenshahi prayer books. And whatever Pazend prayers Shahhenshahis make use of in their prayers are all authorized by our Paigambar saheb and handed over to us through Shosyant Aderbad Marespand saheb.
The patet prayers says it all in Kardo 12:- Pa aan deen dastur aesta hom, een Ahuramazda Zarthosta Chashta, zarthosta Oey Vistaspa. Pe Pevand Adarbad Marespandan mud …………
Translation:- The deen as shown by dadar Ahuramazda which Zarathustra has tasted and handed over to king Vistasp its Pevand or connection goes all the way to our last Rainidar Adarbaad Marespand who is authorized by Dadar Ahura Mazda himself through Paigambar Saheb.
Since Asho Paigambar saheb’s times the prayers which were mostly in Manthra Spenta Original Avesta prayers were accompanied with necessary Mithra in Avesta or Pehelvi language and now we have Pazend prayers in between our Avesta prayers. Hence Pazend prayers are to be said in Baaj. Applying Mithra whilst praying Avesta prayers is long forgotten by us and we just pray from beginning to end very rapidly. Today’s Scholars only consider Avesta prayers as valid and discard Pehelvi- Pazend prayers as added later. This is wrong approach adopted by scholars now and hence are un able to gain insight of mysticism and true spirit existing in our religion. In nature and in any language any word that is coined and used behind it motive and thought connotation always exists which todays scholars seems to overlook.
