What is Ashoi


What is Ashoi – Dill, Demaag, Zaban its interconnectivityand unity required

Dear Friends,

The under mentioned article can be found in Nikhiz Volume 2 Page No 530 written by Dr. Faramroze Sohrabji Chiniwalla which was reprinted in Dini Avaz Vol 6/4 April May June 2001. Please see the scanned pdf attachement, which i have translated the same in english below. Also refer to the Chart of 16 Chakras in excel format which will help you better in understanding the Zoroastrian Yoga – Science of 16 Chakras.

The very first step of Ashoi of an Ashwan is a very important tarikaat and has to be fully understood here. Although it looks simple here but is very difficult to put it in practice here.  Dill, Demaag and Zaban should work in unision.That is, whatever is in our heart (Dill), should be in our mind (Demaag) and whatever is in our mind should come out through our speech (Zaban). If we do otherwise than hypocrisy arises for what is in our heart something else will be in our mind and we say absolutely opposite of what is in our heart and mind. If Dill, Demaag, Zaban are not in unision than tarikaats followed fails to give its promised results, and Tarikaat merely becomes a show or Akrikaat. The science of our Sudreh Kusti is based on this science of 16 Chakras only and wearing sleevless sudreh with tiri or Girdo or Gireban missing is only Akrikaat and nothing else.

Dallas Cancer Patient

A plea for help!

A fellow Zartushti needs your prayers and help.   An Iranian Zartushti family residing in the Dallas area has been dealt a major life challenge and needs your financial help. The young wife and mother of an 11 year old has been diagnosed with a bad case of Meningioma, which is a brain tumor and needs a complex operation to have it removed.  This operation requires a team of experts and will be very costly.   Her operation has been scheduled for the day before Christmas. She will be spending Christmas and  New Year away from her family in a hospital and will not be able to work for a minimum of six weeks.  She will also require extensive post surgery medical follow-up.

This family had left Iran thru the refugee program; they have partial medical coverage but will not have any stable source of income for the next several months. Additionally, their extensive “out of pocket”, “deductibles” and “uncovered” medical bills are piling up.

Zoroastrians are world renowned for their charity and love of mankind. Let’s maintain our philanthropist reputation and help this family in their hour of need.  FEZANA and ZANT have worked an arrangement whereby donors can conveniently donate online to “FEZANA welfare fund”.
