Dear Zarathoshti humdins,
today on Friday 7 Sept 2007, is Farvardin mah, Farvardin roj, called
the Farvardegan day.
On this day we remember fondly the Fravashis of all those who passed away.
And we also pay homage to Zarathushti saints and ancient Kyanian and
saintly kings today.
The prayers ideal for today are Satum-no-Kardo (Stom Karta) and those
who have time, the Farvardin Yasht.
Many Zarathushtis will be going to the Doongerwadi in Mumbai (and
other places) for the jashans and other ceremonies which will be
The Mumbai ceremony may be in the evening, but could someone please
The Doongerwadi at Kemps Corner in Mumbai is a very good place to
visit today. It is a lush green belt, ecologically healthy and
environmentally friendly place. The whole area is serene and calm and
if one is lucky one may spot even the peacocks who run around freely.
Lastly, we hope and pray that the current Dokhmenashini crisis be over
soon, and our community gains wisdom to follow the traditional methods
only. We should not be succumbed by the other "scientific" and "modern
methods", and of course also never to allow electric crematoriums and
burial methods to take place at Doongerwadi.
