What is “STAOTA” ?
Its Definition, Meaning and Rules . . .
By The Late Ervad Phiroze Masani.
[“Zoroastrianism, Ancient and Modern” by the late genius Ervad Phiroze Masani, can well be described as the first English Text Book containing the basic principles of the Mystic Science of our Religion. Every lover of that science should read the book. Every critic of that science should not criticise it without reading that Book. What is the extent of the Zarathushtrian Scriptures? What is the rationale of, and the science behind our so called rituals and ceremonies? How should Zarathushtrianism be studied? What are our Prayers? How are they constituted? What is their effect? What is a ‘Magi’? Who was Zarathushtra? Why is Proselytism (conversion) not advocated in Zarathushtrian Religion?
These and numerous other questions are answered in Phiroze’s Book in a style which is scholarly and yet simple.
Here is an extract from the Book on the subject of “Staota” and “Staota Yasna.”
