Let us celebrate Now Ruz the ZOROASTRIAN WAY
For the last 1401 years, our brethren in the homeland of Zarathustra have been under pressure. To be able to celebrate their ancient festivals they have at times de-Zoroastrianized it and at other times camouflaged it.
A 21st-century example is the celebration of the Espandegan festival see poster attached. It is common knowledge that when the name of the Day and the name of the Month coincide that day is celebrated as a festival. So Espandegan should be celebrated in the Month of Espand on the Day of Espand. According to the attached poster it is celebrated in the month of Bahman ۲۹ بهمن. Ignoring the customs under duress is understandable and is not the question here. The point here is, those of us who live in the free world let us not copy them but do what is right, celebrate the Festivals in the Zoroastrian way. Therefore
- Let us NOT CELEBRATE the 1401 or the 1371st year of the fall of the Persian Empire
- Let us instead celebrate the 3760 years of the teaching of Zarathushtra
- Let us spread the Now Ruz table that reminds us of the teaching of Zarathushtra as in the Gathas not the medical qualities of Garlic (Seer) Apple (Seeb) etc.
- Let us learn about and honour the HEROES who fought for the honour of our sisters and children.
