Zamaandar Raanidaar Aadarbaad Maarespand Saheb

     Dastooraan – Dastoor Aadarbaad Maarespand was one of the Saint Dastoors of Iran who shed luster on and bejeweled the glory of the Mazdayasni – Zarathoshti Daena during the reign of the Saasaanian Soverigns of Iran. He was a man of great piety and possessed the power of “Ashoi”. During the saasaanian rule much of the lost glory and luster of our Daena was restored by him and the Iranians who started losing faith in our religion were brought back to the Mazdayasni Zarathoshti fold.


     The Divine Science of Xnoom states that Dastooraan-Dastoor Adarbaad Maarespand was sent into this world to renovate the religion. So he had all the qualities and neces­sary authority to bring about some change in the religion to suit the coming “Zamaan” (period or era). He was a person who was spiritually well-advanced to perform miracles too.

      Dastooraan-Dastoor Adarbaad Maarespand is a “Raa-e-nidaar” of the present age. This rank is given to a person who is not only very pious owing to his “Ashoi” but also enjoys right to bring about renovation in the Mazdayasni Zarathoshti Daena. He is the one who possess the power of “Ahoo” and, therefore, acquire the Divine Authority to renovate the religion.

      A “Raa-e-nidaar Saaheb also help those who are backward in their spiritual progress and aid in their onward march towards first for individual and then for the collective “Frasho-Gard” (Final Aim, Salvation).

      It is recorded that when the faith of the Iranians of the Saasaaniyan time in the Mazdayasni-Zarathoshti Daena weakened it was Dastooraan-Dastoor Aadarbaad Marespand who performed miracles. On one such occasion he allowed to pour red – hot molten metal weighing some nine maundes over his bare chest and came out of this order unharmed and unscathed.

      Dastooraan-Dastoor Aadarbaad Marespand had a good mastery over the “Stota Yasna” the science of colourful vibrationary sound-ener­gies. He made changes in the prayers to suit the present age. He dropped some Avesta prayers and in their place composed some Paazand prayers, such as, “Patet Pashemaani and Ravaani, “Doa Naam Setaayashne” the thirty daily “Setaayash”, all the “Aafreen”, all the “Nirang”, and some short prayers. These prayers were in the Avesta formerly, but, now they are merely the “Mithra” (thought) of those Avesta text. These prayers in the form of “Mithra” because Aadarbaad Maarespand Saaheb knew about the changing time which would not be suitable to many of the Iranians to follow the extreme mode of “Ashoi”.

      Dastooraan – Dastoor Aadarbaad Maarespand Saaheb was an impressive writer. He wrote his famous Pahlavi work Andarj-i Aadarbaad-i Maarespendaan, or as “Pandnaamak” .

      Many philologists are of the opinion that the later Avesta are not the compositions of Asho Zarathushtra. The syntax of the later Avesta is much different from the original one. It is, as they claim, not and should not be taken as of Asho Zarathushtra. Ilme Xnoom explains that the portion known as later Avesta was not composed by an ordinary person. It was this saint-Dastoor who knew both the “Stote yasna” and the change taking over the “Zamaan”. So he had the right to make changes to suit not only the “Zamaan” but also the tribe of the Mazdayasni-Zarathoshti “urvan” who were going to be born during that period. He was well aware of the fact that the rules of “Ashoi” could not be observed in its pristine form during that period and also the set of new rules that could be followed.

      In the light of Xnoom, thus, we can see the competence of Dastooraan-Dastoor Aadar­baad Maarespand Saaheb to make changes in the religion.
