our Great Prophet passed away to Other Realms

Dear fellow Zarathushtis,

On Khorshed roz, Dae Mah YZ 1376 (Sun , 27 May 2007) is Zarathosht-no-Diso.

It is traditionally believed that our great Prophet Zarathushtra left
earth for His Heavenly Abode on this day.

This is the day when our Paigambar Saheb, Vakshure Vakshuran (meaning
Prophet of Prophets) Asho Zarathushtra left the material earth for His
Heavenly Abode . (In common parlance, it means the day when Asho
Zarathushtra Saheb passed away).

There are many interpretations about the actual meaning of the
so-called "death" of Zarathushtra Saheb. Why do we question the death
phenomenon as applied to the Prophet. Firstly, because he was a
Yazata, a Divine Being, and Yazatas do not undergo death like we
mortals do.

Perhaps some readers may throw more light on this Divine phenomenon.

The site
mentions that: "Special prayer sessions are organized and prayers are
recited with religious discourses focusing on the life and works of
the Prophet. Zoroastrians visit the Fire Temple to pray. Marked as a
solemn occasion, elaborate celebrations and public functions are
largely absent. Even religious ceremonies and services are confined to
the temple or homes. In India, Zarthost No Deeso is particularly
observed in Mumbai, Gujarat and other areas with a Parsi population."

We remember Him today with a small part of a very famous devotional
song, "Saras Sau Thi Kharo Rahebar Asho Zarathosht Paigambar"

Since the original cassette with us was a bit old, the recording is
not the best.

Still it is enough to capture the devotion expressed to Zarathushtra
Paigambar, who is regarded as Vakshure-Vakshuran. Meaning Prophet of
the Prophets.

Please excuse the sound quality, but turn your PC volume full.

Your feedback is welcome.

With best wishes

Baname Khuda!
Dear Mr Dadachanji,
thank you for sharing these points with us.
Specially when you write: "It's never too late to realise the power of has changed me, it could change so many like me. "

Isn't it strange how Rs.500/= seems like such a large amount when you
donate it to a fire-temple, but such a small amount when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at the fire-temple,
and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the
Khordeh Avesta, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?

Isn't it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games,
but do whatever is possible to arrive late and sit at the last row at a
Jashan, Navjote or other religious ceremony ?

Isn't it strange how we need to know about a religious event for 2-3 weeks
before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for
other events in the last minute?

Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about our religion &
history, but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers
say, but we question the words in our Khordeh Avesta or Vendidad ?

Isn't it strange how we send jokes in e-mails and they are forwarded right
away, but when we are going to forward messages like these, we think about
it twice before we share it with others?

I didn't think twice...please forward it to your Parsi friends and family and
promote our religion.
It's never too late to realise the power of has changed me, it
could change so many like me.
