Match Making

Hi. Everyone,

This email has been sent to you all on behalf of Aban Vazir:  Please contact her directly.

Greetings to Everyone,

Since the past 30 to 40 years we Zarthushtis have settled in this beautiful Land worked hard and struggled to raise our kids in the best environment.  We have tried to give them the best education and always wished they would settle well in their lives so after we leave this world they can stand up on their feet and be independent.

Every Zarthushti Parent’s dream is that their son or daughter would marry and stay in our own community and preserve the values of our great religion which our great grandfathers have passed on to us. But how would anyone achieve this. We feel there is a strong need for a person who would help by trying to locate an appropriate friend or a partner and in turn keep the utmost confidentiality of each and every individual.

Hence I would ardently request each one of you to please come forward and contact me so that I can help you find the most suitable match and also assist you in every step of the way, by finding a life partner who will match your personality and compatibility.

I already have a list of girls and boys of all ages, who are looking out for a suitable match, within our community.

So please don’t feel shy and kindly contact me as this is a free and purely community service for our friends and family and above all for our religion.

With best regards,
Aban Vazir – Toronto, Canada.

Evil Eye or Nazar

Do we brush aside Evil Eye or Nazar as just another superstition or is there any Scientific truth behind its belief ?

Zarathosti Daen and its Raaz can be understood with only one instrument – The Key of Ilme Khshnoom

by Savak Sheriyarji Madan

There is a common belief that a child becomes ill due to Nazar of another person or Evil eye. Also there is custom of applying black spot (Mesh) near eye of a small child  to ward off evil effects of Nazar. Also a child is taught not to eat eatables in front of others. But this not mere discipline or etiquette that is taught to the child but is a precaution and a preventive measure to ward off evil eye or Nazar of others. Also there is a belief that if a child is very attractive bubbling with innocence than there is fear of Nazar befalling upon delicate physche of a small innocent child from even his/her own mother. Is all these mere superstition or is there any scientific reason behind these belief.

Religious Education, Future of Mobeds

In a religion as ancient as ours, the center of our spiritual physical being lies with these very priests. The dasturs, as they are known, are the custodians and implementers of all matters pertaining to religion, customs, ceremonies and the overall conscience of the religion. Zarathusti priests have over the centuries been the guiding force in the interpretation of our ancient texts, performing ceremonies of happiness and sadness, and being the silent custodians and arbitrators of our religious ethos.
