Naurooz Prayer Book: FEZANA

FEZANA publishes a Naurooz Prayer Book: Hamā Anjuman Prayers for Naurooz In English, Farsi and Gujarati – Click Here to Read Online

During his term, Past FEZANA President Rustom Kevala gathered a Naurooz Celebration Committee to coordinate 2007 Naurooz Celebrations among FEZANA Member Associations. One project was to create a common Naurooz Prayer for 20 or so minutes and Ervad Soli P. Dastur was given that project. Soli consulted Dastoorjis, Mobeds, and Scholars from India, Iran, and North America and assembled eight prayers for this project. This book is the culmination of these efforts, and may be a first ever book with prayers in English, Farsi and Gujarati with interpretation. The book will be distributed in time for this year’s Naurooz Celebrations to all FEZANA Associations and NA Mobeds. This is a humble effort to bring all our Zarathushti Groups together in a common prayer environment.

The attached file contains all pages of this book (52 in all). If you need a copy of the book, please email to: Soli P. Dastur at:
