Our dear friend Ervad Zarrir Bhandara writes in….
Sincere gratitude to all in making our efforts towards ending the pandemic and bringing about good times through the collective power of our Mathravani prayers more worthwhile.
First time ever more than 500 community members participated in a Jashan and prayed humbandagi together to raise the collective consciousness exponentially which included Vanant Yasht nirang to remove all kinds of afflictions, Ardibehesht Yasht nirang for health and well being, and Sarosh Yasht vadi Nirang for total protection. We will again perform a Jashan of victory Dae Mah Behram roj to welcome the good times.
A Report on A Global Behram Yazad Jashan
Over 500 Zarthostis participates in a Jashan & Prays Together
A Behram Yazad Jashan was performed at the Zoroastrian Association of California’s Atashkadeh/Agiary on Behram roj, Sunday May 2nd to invoke divine intervention from Behram Yazad to achieve Victory over the virus in India and to bring about Health, Strength, Wealth, Longevity, and Happiness amongst our community members and all human beings. For the first time ever we had over 500 community members attend the Jashan and pray together (via Zoom). The Humbandagi included Vanant Yasht nirang to remove all kinds of afflictions, Ardibehesht Yasht nirang for health and well being, and Sarosh Yasht vadi Nirang for total protection.
After the prayers Ervad Bhandara thanked the ZAC committee for organizing the Jashan, thanked the community for participating, and blessed the participants with good health and long life. Furthermore, Ervad Bhandara said that “I am confident and positive that with the powerful vibrations of our prayers we will conquer this & be Victorious. With the blessings of Dadar Ahuramazda, Amesha Spentas, Yazatas, and Fravashis within a month we will achieve 50% Victory, by next Behram roj. On that day we will perform a Jashan of victory and I need your help in strengthening the prayers with your participation to achieve total success.” The event was concluded by playing the following video clip of our very own erudite speaker and
BPP trustee Noshir Dadrawala:
“I am grateful to you Ervad Zarrir Bhandara for the opportunity that you have given me to say a few words and thank you for the initiative that your taken to organize the Jashan to invoke the blessings of Behram Yazad who Zarthostis across the world invoke as the dispeller of all difficulties and the giver of victory, they say a family that prays together stays together in like manner community that prays together stays together and I think this is a wonderful initiative that you have taken to get the global Community together to participate in this Jashan invoking the blessings of the victory giver Behram Yazad. Thank you very much for that thank you for this opportunity where I would like to say a few words about the importance of prayer in our life. We tend to think that as long as we lead a life walking the path of Asha, which is truth, righteousness that’s all that matters. Yes, that’s very important to lead the life of a good Zarthosti, walking on the part of Asha that is truth, purity, righteousness, but prayer is an important component of a day-to-day life just as we need food to sustain our physical body we also need prayers as food for our spirit or the soul, it is nourishment for our soul and therefore it would be foolhardy to ignore the importance of prayers in our day-to-day life. Zarathushtrian prayers are referred to as Manthra just as the Hindus refer to them as Mantras, these are best understood as articulate sounds which unite us to the subconscious, conscious and superconscious planes, when properly recited, Mathras have the power to lift devotees to a higher state of consciousness. And this is something that all those who are deep into activity of prayers have experienced and let’s not just being theoretical, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, once you start praying, you would know it’s efficacy.
Zarathushtra calls himself a Manthran, that is one who composes the mathras, and prayers in my opinion are a purifying Force, they purify the atmosphere around you.You will notice that if you enter a home where there are prayers recited or you enter a place of worship prayers
Where prayers are recited, you automatically feel a purifying sense. So prayers are a unifying force as we’re trying to do today that just like a family that prays together stays together and the community that prays together stays together. It is also a healing force, as I said earlier just as we need food for the body, the physical body, prayers or Manthras which are energy, the energy which human beings can vocalise they can have a major healing force on yourselves and the environment around you. So I congratulate you once again Ervad Bhandara and your team and our brethren all across the world.
I’m glad that we are having this Jashan to invoke the blessings not just of Behram Yazad, but also Ahura Mazda himself the Creator, Zarathushtra who is our prophet, our guide and all the Yazatas or the Divine energies of Ahura Mazda Himself, may the blessings of Ahura Mazda, Zarathushtra, the Yazatas including Behram Yazad be upon our community, may we attain success in overcoming this horrible pandemic and may Ahura Mazda bless us with good health and happiness. Thank you very much.”
