The ninth day of the month and the ninth month of the year in the Parsi calendar is dedicated to Adar Yazad. For all those who are numerically inclined, Adar is the only Yazad who enjoys the same position – ninth – in the list of the roj and the mah.
The word Adar means fire. It is another word for atar. As the name suggests Adar yazad presides over all types of fire and fire energies. It is a Hamkar (co-worker) of Ardibahesht Ameshaspand.
