THE MEANING OF THE WORD “GAHAMBAR”
The word Gahambar is the Pahlavi word `Gaasambar’.
Gahambar = Gaas + Ambar
Gaas means time or season, and
Ambar means getting together of people.
Thus derivatively, a Gahambar would mean a seasonal
festival. The later writings connect the Gahambars with
cosmogony. Each Gahambar represents an evolutionary stage
in the creation of the universe.
