Today on our Earth, man has forgotten himself, woman has forgotten herself, humanity has forgotten itself, and….. Parsis have forgotten themselves.
Because all ofthem have forgotten Dharma, Daena, Religion.
To forget Daena means to forget communication with God. The Only way to communicate with Him is Prayer. We have lost our capacity to pray.
For a Parsi, Prayer is the attunement with Ahura Mazda and Yazats, the Channels of His Divine Light, through Manthra.
Since two centuries, the majority of humans on the globe have discarded God. They are drifted away by their own ego. They exerted hard to find out, through their disoriented intellect, the “natural” (i.e. Godless) laws” governing the atom, monkey, and man’s mind, and have failed miserably in finding all the three. Truth and Reality are more elusive to-day than they were at the start of these exertions. But alas! In the process, all that man did was to display himself as the cruelest killer, destroyer and slaughterer, and a cancerous virus on the bodyofthe Mother-Earth. His was an insane rush towards money, sex and power. To own the gadgets of sensual and material pleasures and the brutal weapons of destruction and torture, was the only aim of life. Knowing fully well that his behaviour brings his own doomsday nearer and nearer, he persists in it obstinately and steadfastly.
BAHAWALPUR: It started out with Tushna Patel being her husband’s navigator. But Roni Patel’s passion for car racing proved infectious and rubbed off on her too, eventually. This year, Tushna was the first female ever to participate in the 9th Cholistan Jeep Rally 2014.
This Parsi couple from Karachi enjoys the fast lane, literally. The couple has a 12-year-old son Meherwan and a 10-year-old daughter Dina.

Recently, for one such Government of India funded Programmes for the Parsi community, “Jiyo Parsi,” announced by the Ministry of Minority Affairs (MOMA), she has played a key role in conceptualizing and launching this programme. This Programme is aimed to increase the Parsi population in numbers by correcting infertility due to the problem of no marriages / late marriages / late conception which have been identified as the main reasons for dwindling numbers.

You should view this site. Most of the Zoroastrians who were unwilling to convert, fled to the mountains of Tajikistan. Some of them went to India. This site clearly shows that today Tajikistan is the land of Zarthusti’s.

Yasna Haptanghaiti by Dr. Pallan Icchaporia
While the YH is clearly non Gathic verse, it is equally clear not all like ordinary prose of Younger Avesta [e.g. the Videvdat] in style. We have no other non-syllable-counting texts, i.e. non-“metrical” in Iranian sense from Old Avestan period. But if the style of Younger Avesta is projected back into the older state of the language the difference in style from that of the Yasna Haptanghaiti is very pronounce.
