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.
