Tirgaan and Gahambar Maidyo-Shahem

Dear Friends,

Friday, November 28, Roj Tir and Mah Tir is the celebration of Tirgaan and also the second Gahambar, “Maidyo-Shahem“, dedicated to the Creation of Water!

This article on Tirgaan and Tir Yazad is by no means a detailed explanation. Also, the attachment regarding “Gahambar” in general, is fairly brief. Both subjects are vast and need a lot of time, understanding and concentration. It is sincerely recommended that one reads these two topics, Tir Yasht and Gahambars from Doctor Saheb Faramroze S. Chiniwala’s two books, Tir Yasht and Nikiz -e Vehdin, Vol. 2. Both are in Gujarati.

With best wishes,

Pervin Mistry
