Lesson 6X – Happy New Year
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Wish you and your dear ones a very Happy Shenshahi New Year!
As we wish Happy New Year to each other, I would like to share its implication as explained by Dastoorji Minochehr-Homji.
Today marks the beginning of the Shenshahi New Year 1385 Y.Z. The Shenshahi calendar uses the Y.Z. suffix (Yazdegerdi era) for its year numbering system.
Y.Z. is the number of years since the coronation in 631 A.D. of the Persian Emperor Yezdegerd III, the last monarch of the Sassanian dynasty.
Let us resolve to begin the New Year with an emphasis to learn and understand the teachings of our religion. Let us make a sincere effort to put its teachings into practice in our day to day life. Let us lead a true Zarathushti life!
