નવસારીની આ પારસી લાઇબ્રેરી આશરે 500થી 700 વર્ષ જૂના પુસ્તકોનો અમૂલ્ય ખજાનો ધરાવે છે. લાઇબ્રેરીયનનું કહેવું છે કે અહીં અમૂક એવાં પુસ્તકો છે જે દુનિયામાં અન્ય કોઈ પણ જગ્યાએ જોવા નહીં મળે. આ લાઇબ્રેરીનું નામ મહેરજી રાણાના નામ પરથી રાખવામાં આવ્યું છે, જેઓ પારસી સમુદાયના પ્રથમ દસ્તૂર એટલે કે મુખ્ય પૂજારી હતા.

  • How I wish that some religion-minded sponsors get together and digitize the entire contents of this invaluable institution. In so doing, a larger section of society in general and scholars in particular will be able to study the volumes.

    It is high time that the mss as well as old books of the library were scanned and digitised and made available to researchers for their use to throw light on Zoroastrianism. The counterpart for Sanskrit and Vedic: the [BORI] Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute in Pune has already commenced digitisation of its precious resources, including three precious mss dealing with Zoroastrianism.The project was funded by the Maharashtra Government. I am sure a fund drive along with funding from generous patrons would ensure safeguarding this precious heritage for prosperity.The BROI shares the digitised data with scholars and researchers for a fee and an undertaking that the data will not be shared or distributed on the net.
