  • What a sham! Contravening things that are of prime importance as laid down in the Vendidad and going around waving the flag of our good religion under the guise of saving Mother Earth and sustaining human fellowship begs big questions. This isn’t an aim to belittle and question the authenticity of all the above mentioned speakers with perhaps the exception of a couple who are familiar to me. It’s about time that we go back to the basics and encourage the community to re-embrace the sheer fundamentals that make a TRUE Zarathushti – talk about our Manthras and its power, disseminate the importance of various tarikats as laid down in our Holy Vendidad – then and only then, there will be true spiritual progress within each of us. The fancy language with ostentatious words through which rhetoric is presented only makes up for a ‘feel-good’ exercise and nothing more!

  • The Tarikats and Power of the Manthravani is most important. Please join us and guide us.
    With much gratitude and respect to our Respected Mobed Sahebs.
    Dr. Koka.

  • This was a talk at The Parliaments of the World’s Religions, where we have tried to highlight Spitaman Asho Zarathustra Saheb’s tenets, where our participants have spoken about the various aspects of Nature as indicated in our Avesta in the various Nasks,to the best if their ability in the time permitted.

    With gratitude for your most positive comment on the immense importance of the Tarikats and Manthravani which could not be highlighted in this particular open event as it was for the Parliament of World’s Religions.

    Thank you once again for your valuable comment.
    Dr. Karishma Koka

    • Karishma – I do realize that the venue may perhaps be not conducive to talking about our Mantravani and tarikats, but the sad part of it all is that you haven’t touched upon the specifics in this context AT ALL at your other opportunities on Ba Humata. Sorry to say, but some of the speakers at your webinars do raise eyebrows – they are not even true Zarathushtis – and now don’t ask who is a true Zarathushti – I expect you to know that completely and I reckon you do realize that. In any event, I don’t mean to go back and forth on this – my only point is to raise awareness within our community on the importance of our Manthras and the various rituals that are imperative to get implemented by each of us, if we want to consider ourselves as true Zarathushtis. Giving the same music over and over again on Good thoughts, words and deeds simply doesn’t cut it – these principles are relevant for all religions. Enough said! And yes… by the way, I have and will continue to guide our Zarathushtis on matters of religion – sorry, my Vohu Manah doesn’t allow me to join any of you, let alone guide you.
