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"

1 Yatha, 2 Ashem Vohu

Caution to Parsi Zarathustis regarding meddling with Jinn and Pari-Part 1

Jinn is male Arvahi and Pari is female Arvahi, and it is Taboo for us Parsi Zoroastrians to meddle with them or invoking Pariamai nor take part in Séance or Ouija Board activity.

Reference No.1 regarding Pari/Daev being carrier of Asere Tariki force can be found in Fravadin yasht Kardo 25 Para 104 starting with “ Hushyothanahe Frashoshstrayanahe ashono fravashim yazmaideh ……………..Paitishtateh aghanamcha khafnam, aganamcha daesanam, aghanamcha aoefranam, aghanamcha pairikanam.”

The last few words meaning:- opposing Tariki which has connection with evil, and which is so rampant in night during our sleep with bad dreams induced by evil and ugly elementals of Pari, the benevolent Fravashi of Vohunemangah who gives a befitting reply and breaks all evil spells, with that benevolent Fravashi I bow down and try to attune with you.

Reference:- Fravadin Yasht ni Tavil Page 143- 144 Fasli Farvardegan Silver jubilee Frashogard Memorial Volume.
More Reference 2:- regarding taboo for Bastekustian Zarathostis in having contact with Jinn, Pari Arvahi:-

“Yo yajaiteh havare yat ameshem raem aurvataspem, Paitishtateh temangam, paitishtate temaschithranam Daevanam Paitishtateh tayunamcha hajashnam, Paitishtateh yatunamcha Pairikanamcha ……………….yo yjaiteh havare yat ameshem raem aurvataspem”.

Opposing forces of darkness or “Tamas Chithra” evil seeds that will only give in return sorrow and spread destruction through materialistic knowledge. “Havare Khshaeta” or power of Sun that spreads light and as is mentioned in Khorshed Niyaesh, “Ahu Chithra” who fight selflessly against evil selfish forces. Those who are opposite of Gospandi or selfless forces who spread havoc in the world with their evil intent who as a thief enter through back door “tayunamcha hajashnam” in our day to day affairs and who instigate weak willed humans to commit sins, havare Khsaheta who fight against those dark forces of Pari “Pairikanamcha” ( Bad evil arvahi forces) through sorcery “yatunamcha” who only spread death and destruction are been taken care of benevolent forces of Sun “ameshem raem aurvataspem” and its antiseptic rays in day time.

Reference:- Dr saheb F.S. Chiniwala’s “Khordeh Avesta Ba Khshnoom” Page 219-220 Khorshed Niyaesh Tavil Para 14th
There are quite a few references in Khordeh Avesta that declare Pari (Pairika) as evil sprites (sorceresses, witches) and explain how the various Yazats smite these evil entities.

This should be a strong indication for all faithful Zarthustis not to get misled by the ongoing propaganda being shared on WhatsApp, emails, social media etc.

Below are some references from Khordeh Avesta (that could find by searching for the word "pairika" in the pdf version of Kangaji's Khordeh Avesta) that warn us against encouraging such non-zoroastrian practices i.e. having contact with Pariamai to seek their favours etc..

1. Hormuzd Khodae prayer.

2. Khorshed Nyaish: Para 14.

3. Hormuzd Yasht: Para 5, Para 10.

4. Ardibehest Yasht: Para 6.

5. Tir Yasht: Karda 5 (para 8), Karda 6 (para 12), Karda 10 (para 39), Karda 13 (para 44), Karda 16 (para 51, para 53, para 55). Karda 16 specifically talks about an evil sprite (pari) named "duzyairya" and how Tir Yazad binds this Pari.

6. Sarosh Yasht Hadokht: Karda 1 (para 6)

7. FarvardinYasht: Karda 25 (para 104), Karda 28 (para 135)

8. Behram Yasht: Karda 1 (para 4), Karda 21 (para 62)

9. Hom Yasht (large): Karda 1 (para 18), Niran of Hom Yasht

10. Nirang of Vanant Yasht

11. Khordad Yasht: Para 3

12. Khorshed Yasht: Para 4

My reply to Parsiana dated 21st June, 2016 Editorial Write up titled "A mirror to reality"

Mr Jehangir Patel

Editor of Parsiana

The following is in response to your Editorial viewpoint write-up titled "A mirror to reality"in Parsiana dated 21st June 2016

You write:-

If the Parsi traditionalists wish to be taken seriously they have to present a cohesive, persuasive and organized argument. They have to create platforms and institutions. They have to present documentation and scriptures to substantiate their arguments. They have to put in the required, sustained hard work and thought. They cannot be mere armchair conservatives, spouting out random thoughts and fanciful stories. Unless they demonstrate some tangible results, they will continue to remain on the margins of society.

To view whole Parsiana Editorial article click over Here

You are interested in persuasive and cohesive organized argument. As if after giving all the proof you will turn to a new leaf, all in favour for our age old traditions and customs. Hasn’t all Vada Dasturjis given umpteen number of times in one voice and in writing that Inter marriage is bad and you cannot increase fold by inter marrying. Now that you know that all present Vada Dasturji barring few are ailing and become Old so you would like to push your reform strategy.Even if our Paigambar saheb will descend to give religious discourses to ignorant people you being rational minded will start demanding a University Degree from him. Do you understand the status of our Paigamaber saheb that he is called as “Aevo” the one and only one, and has divine wisdom known as Asne Vir.The divine senses as mentioned in Doa Naam Setayesh Pazand prayers are Vir, Hos, Kherad. These are divine senses but you sir are refusing to use even common sense. Some of the Hindus saints are known as “Trikal Gyani” or knower of Three Kaals where as our Paigamber saheb is knower/ Seer of seven Eras( Saat Kaal) of vast expanses of mind boggling stretch of time that he can see with his divine eye. And he knew and saw the past, present and future of all the time frames that this earth will be in existence till salvation known as Frashogard. That is why he is called as "SEER", the one who can see much beyond us, where as we with our short sight cannot see anything further than the stock of our nose, somewhat similar to the saying in Gujarati that “Derka ni Duniya tey Kuvani Paar.”

Do you for any practical purpose take all things in life on face value that what you see you believe, and the rest is not to be believed in ?.I would like to ask a counter question to you. You have assumed your parents as your mother and father because you have been told that these are your mother and Father, just because somebody in your family told you so. Now if you are rationalist then won’t you be needing proof of your hereditary existence, or are you going to doubt your parents too ?. There is a limit to rationality and there are many things under the Sun which are done in good faith and you cannot take away the faith from us, however you deformists may try it. Another example I would like to point out is that you are sitting on earth you observe that Sun is moving around earth, but that is only your apparent observation whereas truth is very much opposite to your apparent observation. You also observe that Earth is also Flat but in reality Earth is round in shape, so after all, your eyes can play a trick on your mind.

You feel that we have to reform because our age old practice of Dokhmenashini is defunct because of lack of Vultures which is main agent for disposal for dead body. As if when the vultures were there you deformists called this system as filthy and barbaric which is like a kettle calling the pot Black. Now these are not random thoughts that you would not like to believe in but those who have done some scriptural studies can tell you that for a Zarathosti soul no other method of disposal of dead is allowed if he has to reach Chinvat Pool. Do you at all in first place believe that there is place called Chinvat. Do you believe that there are places a soul has to dwell in after his physical death on earth. The names like Naman, Vees, Jantu, Dakhyu, Varjamkard, Kang Daeza, Ganjesh(Portal) found in our avesta prayers and Afringan Prayers, the seven Dakhyu names that can be found in our Meher Niyaesh Avesta Prayers, does all these mean anything to you ? Or is it according to you a figment of imagination by our past Mobeds that new unnecessary ceremonies are invented after high intoxication of “Chato Pani” merely to sustain their living and extra income. For your information Physical death is not end of everything, for nothing can be destroyed in nature they can merely be transformed from one element to another, that is basis of Alchemy, like lead can be converted to Silver, or Cooper to Gold. Over here we are talking about Spiritual Alchemy of a Soul. That is why Dokhmenashini is called as “Awal Manzil”, which is well oiled machinery of nature for disposal of atoms of dead body in a defined and swift manner where atoms are taken care of by Daham Yazad. In case of other disposal Daham Yazad won’t be able to help the soul. In Bible it is said that “In my Father’s home there are many Mansions”, have you considered all these facts before you arrive at any logical conclusion for reform. You would like to believe that by cremating or burying the body we are expediting the process of getting rid of Putrid matter in a dignified manner and the matter ends there. But you Deformists with your short sight are missing important fact that death is not the end of our Journey but only a step further to it. Besides the 3 physical body of Tanu, Gaetha, Azda there are other 3 Ultra Physical parts known as Keherp, Ushtan, Tevishi and Divine 3 part of the body known as Ruvan, Baodang, Fravashi which has to be taken into consideration. Are you wise enough even to question the authority of our Paigamber Saheb which has shown us the path. These long standing customs are valid for all ages and even today in absence of Vultures we have sun shining all year round which will crumple the physical body to powder form and exposure of body to Sun is known as “Khurshed Nagirashni” which is another side of the same coin. You under the guise of being practical and pragmatic wish reform and would like to do away our age old practices. I would say Keep trying but you will never succeed.

Why did we Leave Iran our Mother Land:-
And for what purpose did we leave our property and home land of Iran ? To preserve and protect our religion and ethnicity of being a Parsee, otherwise did it not occur to you in first place that why did we not merely convert to another religion and take trouble of coming all the way here to India. Remember that amongst Crores of population we have shone like a diamond and that is due to our Parsi Panu and preserving of our seed known as “Boonak Pasbani” and you want to under guise of reform want to give up all that. This Scare Mongering fear tactics adopted by you and brain washing the gullible youngster in HPY Holiday Programme for Youths will not last for long, for our religion is going to last for all the time to come. It may shrink but it can never disintegrate for there is higher Hierarchy taking care of it. What is not going to last will be deformists who thing it is time to change. Certain things cannot be changed. For example you cannot change your children for they are been gifted by god to you, same is the case with the religion, for Religion is not man made but is God made that is why it is called as Ahurish Takesho in Afringan Prayers Daham no Kardo. Translation:- Ahurish= That Belonging to Ahura, Takaesho= Deen= Religion.You cannot change a religion like wanting to change a dress to your liking/preference, nor tell others to forgo their own religion and come in our fold. I shudder to even think what will hardliners in Middle East do when they come to know of your conversion policy. Consider yourself lucky that you are dealing with cultured community. Had you gone ahead with your gimmicks with other community the only solution for them is death to the reformer. To educate how they treat the Blasphemy victims/ Adulterers is they bury the victim in ground with their head above ground, and they are stoned to death, other method is they cage the victim and sprinkle Petrol and cremate/ roast alive. Sounds very revolting and barbarous, does it not ??

It is one thing to believe as you want but it is a sin or “Margarjan Gunah” to confuse the laity/ fence sitters with your distorted and convoluted way of looking at our religion. Please desist from doing that for on the day of judgement one has to answer all our misdeeds. Better to be safe than be sorry.

Astavat- Ereta ,Shoshyant and 3 Kayamats( Apocalyse’) Part 1:-Only Cream of Cream 11000 will survive

Fravardin Yasht Kardo 25:-

The present Zarvane Daregokhadate(ZDK) of 81,000 years’ time cycle comprises the following seven royal cycles known as Shahenshat. They are as under:-

Jupiter = 11,000 Years( Burjiz Shahenshat)
Mars= 17,000 Years ( Hashemi Shahenshat)
Sun = 4,000 years
Venus= 9,000 Years
Mercury= 13,000 Years
Moon = 12,000 Years
Saturn= 15,000 Years
Total 81,000 Years

We are living presently somewhere in between Hashemi Shahenshat ( also known as Kali Yuga)

If you divide (ZDK) in three parts roughly (around the turn of 21st Century) then the first part is just about to get over soon in our life time, and we are living at that end time. At the end of that 1st part of 3 divisions, Rainidar Shah Behram Varjawand Saheb will descend for our salvation who will revive and refresh this world from the miseries we are surrounded at present. Zarthustra’ s 91 Havisht or his envoys whose work is to guide the souls through Jhirum order in nature are remembered in the Fravardin Yasht prayer, Kardo 25th.

The era of Jupiter time cycle of 11,000 years was during paigambar saheb and his descend. Zarathusti Burjisi ( Jupiter) Shahenshat has already passed through mid period and finally shrunk to minimal size of 1 Lakh practicing Zoroastrians in India with Pav Mahal. After Paigambar saheb established the good religion our forefathers lived in Iran and then during rise of Islam we left Iran and adopted India as our new Homeland. We are now in between Hashemi period but yet many years left for Hashemni (Mars) Shahenshat to get over.

From the main Mazdayasni Zarathosti deen other 4 religions of the book shows its presence and are born (viz Hindu, Islam, Judaism and Christianity). A time will come that out of main group of present practicing zarathusti that have come to India only 11000 true blue blooded Zarathustis who can be called as true staunch followers of our Zarathosti deen will survive and last till end of time when Shah Behram Varjawand will show up. The under mentioned 91 names of Zarthustra Havisht carries the forceful Mithra embedded in their names and they are remembered in Kardo 25th which explains to us as to how they as co-workers of Paigambar saheb are responsible to other above 4 Religions which manifested in their given time. It thus shows how Zarathusti deen can be called as Mother of all religions, explaining law of Jhirum in Kardo 25 of Fravardin Yasht.
The under mentioned 91 names follow:-
1) Maidyomaongahe
2) Asmo- Khanvat
3) Ashno- Khanvat
4) Gavyan
and so on till .......

90) Frayar
91) Astavat Eret

Over here 91 names are mentioned who are disciples of Asho Zarathustra very high lofty spiritual status connected with Fravashis of Yazats. From the times of Paigambar Saheb till now when the end time will come for Behram Varjawand saheb the next Rainidar to show up in very near future. These 91 Havisht their main function is be guiding light and show spiritual path to all holy souls of Ashvan Category and even to Dravands like us who have been deceased so far. They do untiring job of guiding the relevant high souls of other four Jhirum or religion. From “Aivi thrishva” which is considered as one third part of earth which is pure and free from earthly contamination of Druj, which is known as Garodeman Behest heaven where lineage of “Zarathusta-Temo” are prevalent. Zarathusta-Temo= functioning like Zarathustra, Temo= similar to Him. But from times of Asho Zarathustra till Behram Varjawand in near future these 91 Havishts will from time to time show up as Rainidar saheb and keeping intact their Dasturi or seal of authority as given by Paigambar saheb himself will work in tandem with 91 Havist as mentioned in kardo 25 of Fravardin Yasht. Shah Behram Varjawand the next coming Raininar will himself be guided by Astavat- Eret. Not much is known about the past Rainidars that has done their work so far but the last Rainidar Adar Baad Marespand is known to us. Nature works in mysterious ways that is unknown to us and it is better that these secrets are kept hidden from us in form of Rumz.

Today as we known holy souls or Chaechast Saheb, Behram varjawand Saheb is in midst of them under their guidance and tutelage. When Astavat- Eret will show up amongst Chaechast Saheb that will be the time when Behram Varjawand Saheb will materialize and show up in public of known world or “Zaher Duniya”. These 91 Havisht ( Co workers of Paigambar saheb) last name mentioned is that of Astavat- Eret which we have to know his importance. All these 91 Havisht their spiritual status are immensely holy beyond our grasping power of mind. Their individual Fravashis work in unison and joined with common group of Fravashis. These 91 Havisht their Ruvan and its Rai are linked with Rai of Zarvan Fravashis groups which is Rai of Dadar Ahura-Mazda himself. The bodies of 91 Havisht are made up of Khathrvat Noor which is beyond our grasping power of mind and their spiritual status is much beyond the other side of Khetvodat and pertaining to them, which is considered as whole complete Ruvan of perfection. Their Fravashi- Uravan and Baod are equally developed and it may seem like a narration from a Myth itself which we may never be prepared to even believe in it, but in truth it is a reality above our 5 worldly sense of perception. … Ref:- Page 126 Part 2 Fravardin Yasht Tavil.

It wont be an exaggression on out of place if we say that the above mentioned 91 names mentioned in Fravardin Yasht their power is immense for they are accompanied by 1) Fravashis of Yazads, 2) the very Fravashis that run the Ushtan Pranvayu Seas or Zareh, and 3) The Fravashis of Gavoi nature prevalent in nature are accompanying these above mentioned 91 Nars and hence will bring whole humanity closer to Frashogard salvation. Hence their status is highly valued and of immense nature. Today we with our Animal Instinct build an opinion for others in a very crude manner. We wont be happy and flattered if we like to conclude about ourself that our mentality is half beastly and more of animal like instinct that follows with it, but if we put our hands on our conscience and we will know from where our beastly instinct comes from. But it has to be noted that the above 91 Nars are themselves Real Nars and Yazats. Hence they have to be given proper respect when their names are prayed whilst reciting Fravardin Yasht from which only benefits will accrue on us fructifying only into "Sawab".

But if at all we consider them like one of us mortal humans but with a little better intelligence and strength even after understanding the above mentioned description of them,then we are answerable in nature for having mockingly degrading them with normal human being status like us, which will only fetch Bad Keshahsh or Karma out of such disrespect.

There is Education and Education

Nature’s laws are based upon truth existing in this Universe and are not based upon what we think as it is. And the right education should be based upon the existing nature’s laws. The object of Education should be spiritual upliftment and today’s Education is based only on one aim, and that is about earning our livelihood and making income, Commercialism and Economics is the only thing that is concentrated upon. Nothing bad about making a hard earned income out of our livelihood but we can call it enough only when it answers all our needs and not beyond that. Anything above our needs should not be amassed but given in charity for nothing can be taken with us once we leave this corporal world.

Baname Yazad Prayers says it all ……….

Ba Marduman ba sepas-dar kardan na tokhshi darad, che aney darvish oy ane Tavangar ……..
Translation:- Do not only work for amassing wealth. Those who are living in penury or those who have amassed wealth should both be grateful for all that is bestowed upon them by the almighty. Those who are ungrateful and do not show gratitude are destined for hell only.

For it is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy.

There is Education and Education and is like a double edged sword. Who is objecting to a good education for your child nobody should be denied that by all means give your children good education but what about spiritual education we should never forget and neglect that. For one should not expect a Rose tree when we have sown the seeds of other flower. As per our Mazdayasni Deen if we divide it into 16 parts, out of it 14 parts pertains for our spiritual progress and Education and only 2 parts are reserved for our Mundane life.In the name of Education Moral degradation should not be prevalent in our education by giving undue importance to only economic and commercial prosperity.
In our natural human composition of body there are 5 Kuvat or faculties to be taken into consideration. They are 1) Kuvatey Tani 2) Kuvatey Hum kheshi 3) Kuvatey Eklakhi 4) Kuvatey Zamiri 5) Kuvatey Ruhani. The above 5 faculties of human can only be developed if sixth Kuvat 6) Kuvatey Zari or amassing of wealth is not given much importance.
Three laws in nature are behind any worldly operation that can make one prosperous or otherwise. They are:-
1) Mehrub Bit Tabey= Laws of science that work against nature’s machinery
2) Galeb Bit Tabey= Laws of science that over burden the nature’s machinery
3) Maglub Bit Tabey= Laws of Science that run parallel in attunement and in Harmony with nature’s machinery
Based on understanding these three natural laws our Education, and any Institution, Organizations and our functioning should be based upon.
We will inspect all the above three laws and come to conclusion on which of the above law our Education is based upon.
1) Mehrub Bit Tabey:- Mehrub= Going against, and Taebey= Nature. The natural laws that does not exist based upon that an activity or organisation is constructed and operates upon. In short those activities or organization that does not work upon the established laws and tenets as in prescribed by the Prophet of any religion that go against natural law. It should be known that any activity going against nature and its machinery is destined to be destroyed although outwardly it may seem to be working fine in the beginning. The reason behind it is Gehnamino and spiritual backwardness that go along with it always works fine in beginning but all that glitters is not gold and finally Spenamino victory will finally prevail over Gehnamino. Take example from Hormuzd Yasht as below:-
Kat Ashva Mazd vanat Dravantem= Can a Ashvan finally be victorious over Dravant full of daruji.??? The answer to this query is in affirmative. Ashva vanat Drujem, Ashva Vanat Dravantem= An Ashvan of ashoi will finally be victorious over Dravant or daruji.

2) Galeb Bit Tabey:- Galeb=To dominate, and Tabey=Nature. We are living in today’s world where science tries to imitate, dominate and behave as if it has understood Mother nature by trying to decimate Atoms, electrons, Protons and by experiments like Higgs Boson, Atom Accelerator, very large Hadron colliders and making Atom and Hydrogen Bombs that can destroy this earth 100 times and thus wasting in nature by dissecting four elements known as “Anasar”. Nature abhors wastage or “Ishraf” of any kind especially when one is trying to act like God himself. All these experiments which manipulate nature by Art or science are destined to destroy and plunder nature by force. Thus Galeb Bit Tabey is more dangerous than Mehrub Bit Tabey. Just as the burden of Mehrub Bit Tabey can be found in any time frame but in good times it is of lesser intensity than the bad times we are living in of Scientific Age, simillarly Galeb Bit Tabey need not be present in all ages as it can show its presence only in between two ages of good and bad times. When Galeb Bit Tabey surpasses its boundaries nature sets in and corrects it and thus heralds good times in future. But in all ages we can see science that is pro nature( Maglub Bit Tabey which is explained below) and Galeb Bit Tabey that tries dominance over nature the two opposing force of nature diametrically working against each other.

3) Maglub Bit Tabey:- Maglub=to merge with Asere Roshni white forces, and Tabey=Nature. Without opposing Mother Nature and working shoulder to shoulder parallel along with nature as its Co-worker, and working on constructive principle is the real meaning of Maglub Bit Tabey. It’s foundation is based in Harmony with Mother nature and thus is known as “Radih” or being righteous. It is called as Radih because it supports Asha the order on which this whole Universe operates with Spenamino. Thus Maglub Bit Tabey is ever lasting and those operating in tandem with it the end result is always successful and positive thereby strengthening Asere Roshni aiding the white forces of nature.

Now anybody can guess that on which of above category our education is based upon. For today after earning a degree we get a job and are so busy making a living out of life and one forgets to make a life out of a living.
Note:- Let us study the communities of today who are prosperous and look back at our ancestors too for their past lifestyle. Communities like Sikhs, Bohris, Muslims and Jews although they may be in any field of enterprise or service or even be it Entrepreneurship like business, they make it a point in moving along life in their traditional dress and attire not forgetting the religious principles based on their tenets of religion. They never forget fasting, Roza, Namaz, nor do they intake food that is considered as Haram in their religion. Kosher is for Jews or Halal in Muslims is very much prevalent, and daily attendance in their religious places. No matter whatever may be the situation the Sikhs never let go their religious belief of wearing a Turban and a beard. A family that eats and grows together are the ones who are successful. Today we have copied western culture and let go living in joint families, keep our elders in nursing homes, have separate rooms and even separate stoves for cooking, if at all we cook at home. We are worried about our jobs and its earnings only.

Today’s education without understanding it only cramming the lessons is important as far as examinations are concerned, after that we forget what we have learnt. In our academically inclined studies we acquire knowledge but wisdom can be achieved only if we are true to our religion. For Knowledge is knowing what to say but wisdom is knowing when to say. Thus by cramming for examination our vital energy, time, money all goes to waste for it is all forgotten after examinations are over. All this can be classified under first law of Mehrub bit Tabey which goes against nature.

Any thought, words or deeds outwardly although it may seem as good we have to observe and ask to ourselves that in which of the above three described category it can fit in the slot. The answer to our observations can be given in three different ways.

Observations and three methods of Judging things:-

1) With our god given gift of applying our minds we can see directly by the results of our actions. But sometimes the results are not immediately visible in our life time. For example a seed of a Banyan tree will take long time to grow which we may not see it in full grown capacity in our life time, same goes to our actions which may take some time to fructify. So that method wont serve our purpose all the time.

2) We can observe from our ancestors their way or lifestyle and judge how happy they were in their life time by being obedient to the customs and traditions followed and as given to us by our Prophet Vakhshurey Vakshuran Ramz-Go Ahurana Asho Spitaman Zarathustra Saheb. Thus we can with our observation come to conclusion whether our ancestors who have clung to age old customs were happy or we today who have one by one let go our time tested customs and traditions are really happy.

3) The third and the last method is a full proof method where we can judge whether our actions are conducive and rightfully excepted and in harmony with Nature. This method of observation is known as “Mahiyat”= Right Judgement.By following Ashoi Tarikats we can judge for ourselves by using our high keen sense of Mahiyat developed by following Ashoi all things in right perspective and in which of the above three categories our actions or deeds belong to. For our mode of Ratiocination or reasoning by our senses can come in another three categories described as under:- A) Vujub Bil Gayer B) Imkan Dar Nafs C) Mahiyat.
A) Vujub Bil Gayer:- is the sense of thoughts in which no reasoning is of his own but merely by observing from others which is also known as “herd mentality” and his thoughts are inclined to that thinking merely because other people do think and say so. Gayer=Something belonging to others and not his own. Such a manner of thinking is present in 95 % of humanity and those are lazy people who refuse to think on their own.
B) Imkan Dar Nafs:- is the sense of thought in which a person after hearing from others their reasoning adds reasoning of his own and thus arrives at half-baked conclusion based
on his own assumed philosophy. This type of thinking many people think in that manner which will not give correct results. He thus tries to influence his way of thinking on others by superimposing his belief on others as if it is the truth existing in nature. Such kind of thinking is prevalent in other 5 % of humanity.

The above two manners of thinking and judging at things are arrived at in absence of any Ashoi Tarikats followed by them. In such a confusing state of affairs how can we come to a much needed logical right answer. For who will decide when Doctors disagree ?? when they themselves are unaware of the three above mentioned laws. In such a case Mahiyat comes to our rescue.

C) Mahiyat:- is the highest and correct way of thinking/reasoning in which you can never go wrong in your Judgement and looking at things in a total unbiased way. But it is very difficult to find such a person who thinks in such a manner by following Ashoi Tarikats. Hard to find even 1 person out of 10,000 persons who looks at all things in right perspective and is known as Mahiyat. By following Ashoi Tarikats one can take notice of his true inner voice of his own conscience by developing his own Ahu and thus becomes aware of what is right in nature and what should one abstain from. Only such a person can be called as Mahiyat and has true capacity of Right Judgement, which can never be wrong for he can see through the nature with his inner eye. Thus two persons having Mahiyat powers can never have two different answers for same question. A person having Mahiyat will analyse a question by taking into use 9 rules of higher analytical grammar as under:-
a) Kum (Quantity)
b) Kef (Quality)
c) Azafey (Ascending order)
d) Aen (Body, Draft)
e) Vajeh (Composition)
f) Melk (Essence)
g) Mata (Dominating power of time and right time in nature for any work)
h) Fael (Kriya or inner working)
i) Enfal (Result of the performed Kriya)

In such a way for judging a question and answering it in form of Mahiyat the above analysis is required to arrive at the right conclusion and right answer for it, and he will know immediately what is right or wrong and against Asere Roshni.

All things in nature is made up of as per law of Jooft and Jooz which is explained below in Note form. Similarly Knowledge can also be classified under law of Jooft. The knowledge is as under:- 1) Ilme Sruto 2) Ilme Ataee. Ilme Sruto:- one can achieve by hearing a speech or by reading a book where as Ilme Ataee:- it can be achieved by practicing Ashoi Tarikats as shown by our Paigambar Saheb and by developing Ashoi an inspired Self Knowledge when one can never go wrong that comes out of one’s heart. Thus in ancient times knowledge was imparted by the Master to his disciple from Heart to Heart that is Seena Dar Seena and not by reading books. “Ilme dar Seena dar seena, Neh dar safina” = Real knowledge can be imparted by Guru shishya way, all other way of acquiring knowledge by books is impractical.

“Chati etli sachi, Potha etla thotha” The knowledge imparted through heart is the real knowledge or wisdom that can never be forgotten and bookish knowledge is not true knowledge.

Till one practises Ashoi tarikats the nature is not receptive to our queries or our need to know him. For as long as our passions comes in between our thirst for knowledge will be incomplete and one requires to have control over one’s passions. “Dil Kushad, Dil Azad; Dil azad, Dil Kushad.” The nature is embedded in our heart chakra but till we recognize our original nature lying dormant in our hearts we cannot experience or feel mother nature which is within us and no need to search outside. Ahum Mashim= Avesta word for natural ability within our inert heart to recognize and open up and make it “Kushad”. Till our Heart becomes pure and free = Dil Azad, by freeing from shackles of passion our heart does not recognize nature and Humata, Hukhata, Huvarashta of Yazads existing in nature.

Below reference of Note:- A manual of Khshnoom by P. Tavadia Page 411
Note of Jooz and Jooft Law:- The former is law of Polarity(Jooz) that is produce effect by opposition, and the latter is law of Duality(Jooft) that is producing effect by Co-operation. Both can give results, which may either be of Spenamino which means co-operating with nature in expediting the divine plan of Ahunavar. Or the result may be of Asere Tariki the issue leading to darkness under Gehnamino, the destructive or retarding principle that is temporarily retarding the divine plan. The two sleeves of our Sudreh remind us of these two laws prevalent in nature and we have to follow the path of light.

Reformists need to change and not the Orthodox

If Change is the constant factor in all times to come then reformists need to change for the good and not the Orthodox for the worst. Change for being better and not for degrading oneself to lower carnal desires. Reform is not a bad word after all, but those who want to reform religion in their ignorance wants to do away all that is sacred in the name of reform without even understanding what they want to discard is the kernel cream of religion and outwardly as a show want to hold onto only the past glory achieved by their forebears who achieved glory by being loyal to the cream and kernel of the religion and its long followed practices of rituals and tarikats known as “Daregyao Upyanao”= meaning long standing rules and regulations observed since ages which cannot be refuted or basic fundamentals of our religion. Today’s Parsees feel they are proud in being a Parsee which demands respect from other communities but they fail miserably to understand that very Parsi Panu for which our forebears were known for. First and foremost rule is they brush aside the very basic rule of Boonak Pasbani or preservation of seed. If we intermarry and cross breed can we ever preserve our Parsi Panu ??. We only cling to our past glory of eating good food like Dhan Saak, Patrani ni Macchi, Berry Pulav, Chicken Mutton Biryani, Kaju na Saus ni Machhi, Jardaloo ma Ghosh, Bhakra, Malido, Kor ni Saree and spacious houses our ancestors used to live in, our so very famous Baugs and colonies which other communities envy and feel how lucky we are. Pride is an antithesis to anything sacred and it is shortcoming of our character rather than a noble characteristic trait of being a Parsi. We should not be proud but be humble to God’s glory for he being merciful has allowed us to be born in such a great religion for our past good deeds. Nature does not forget anything and he being Just and merciful has rewarded us amply be giving us birth in such a noble religion for which we should be ever grateful and not be proud and look down upon other religions as being inferior to us. God in being just and merciful has showered upon our ancestors his countless blessing and we want to discard and let go those blessings in the name of being modern. All these ignorance by modern so called reformists is based on today’s Science who are atheists and who are blissfully unaware that God exists everywhere and thus is called as Omnipotent/Omniscient.

“The present day education has broken the usage of these old customs damning them as superstitious with the result that the community which never had produced a single prostitute during their exile of 12 centuries in India is showing contrary; a community which was honest to the hilt is degenerated, which was industrious is becoming lazy. The present day civilization is material hence it knows nothing about these spiritual things. The civilized of the present day call themselves rational. But the first rule of rationalism is broken by them that one should never pronounce an opinion about which he is ignorant.” ….. Reference:- Sequel to Essential of Zoroastrianism by Dr.F S Chiniwala, page 13

Kindly go through undermentioned thoughts by Late Jehangirji Chiniwala and what he had to say about Science and their so called pride in understanding nature with their rational thinking:-


Science forgets God and his existence – By Late Jehangirji S Chiniwala

So called reformists of new modern thinking have come out with a thinking based upon their own understanding that we in today’s modern technological advanced world we should do away with old out dated way of life which they label it as mere superstition and thus are appealing to faithful followers of our community who still practice what their forebears used to follow in the past. The modern so called reformists at the top of their voice are being fervently vocal to their wrong ideology of being pragmatic and practical and changing with the modern times keeping themselves apace to modern technology of science and thus demand change to old way of religion as practiced in the past. They want to spear head their thinking with one title of “Change and Reform” needed in our religion Some of the so called Reformists want to thrust upon other faithful followers their own way of reformed religion compatible to today’s fast paced life that they would like to follow and practice as per their own faulty thinking. Such modern thinking reformists in their wishful thinking or false conception known as “Dhakharo” even fail to grasp the Basics of our religion, nor do they even care to try and understand what lies in nature and its resources that has been instrumental in building up this time tested and irrefutable customs and long standing traditions that cannot be sacrificed in any times to come in future. The wishful thinking of such so called Reformists think that all that was being practiced in past cannot be done in today’s modern age as it is impractical, hence we should be pragmatic and change with the times by being shoulder to shoulder with the modern times.

Zarathusti deen like all other great religions is being given to us as per the will of God himself known as Divine Ahunavar. It is God made and not human made like many so called modern thinking Pragmatics would like to think their way contrary to the truth existing in nature. That is their false conception that has lead them to such an illogical conclusion. Our religion or for that matter any religion cannot be understood by our worldly logic and five senses. Something more is needed to understand it and that is known as faith.

In last century in Europe there was an exchange of religious ideas between top Scientists and Christian Priests. Scientists argued with the Christian Clergy that whatever that can be seen or experienced by us can be believed and not anything contrary to that. We the scientists do not take for granted the presence or existence of God (Dadar Ahura Mazda, Ameshaspands, and Yazads) as you all take it for granted.

The reply that Christian Clergy gave to the Scientists is worth taking a note of it. The Christian Clergy replied that we may be believing in God and his existence God (Dadar Ahura Mazda, Ameshaspands, and Yazads), but have you ever thought of what you believe in and take it for granted with your muscular lump of brain and its five worldly senses that go along with it, is that you are capable of understanding all the mysteries of nature hidden in bosoms of this world. This is your faulty thinking that has led to such an illogical conclusion for such false pride or illogical conclusion cannot be summed up even by your pet cat at home who also does possess such lump of muscular brain as all humans do have it.
