What to pray during Muktad days
By Pervin Mistry
It is often asked as to what one should pray during the ‘Muktad’ days. It is requisite that we pray the daily farajiyat prayers and then pray the Patet Raven-ni Naiyate; Satum-no Kardo or, “Karda to be recited in memory of the Departed Ones” (as given in the English version); Sarosh Yasht Hadokht (during the day) or Sarosh Yasht Vadi (night time).
It is also a practice to recite the Baj of 1200 Ashem Vohu for the first 5 days, i.e. from Ashtad to Mino Aneran roj and to recite the Baj of 1200 Yatha Ahu Vairyo on the 5 Gatha days. In addition, it is highly recommended that at least for the 10 Muktad days, we pray the Framroat-no Ha, which is Yasna 20, the Avestan Commentary on the Ashem Vohu Prayer. The following is an explanation of Yasna 20.
