Khordad Sal Mubarak!
Monday, August 21, 2023, Shahenshahi Roj Khordad Mah Fravardin, will be observed by Parsis as ‘Khordad Sal‘.
On this day, after your daily (farajyat) prayers, recite the line below (from the Fravardin Yasht) 101, 303, 505, 707 or 909 times:
“Ushta no zāto āthrava yo Spitāmo Zarathushtro.”
“Rejoice! (Thanks to Thee, O Ahura, that) the savior Spitama Zarathushtra is born.”

On this auspicious occasion, we present some not-so-well-known facts about the most exalted spiritual status and powers of Prophet Asho Spitaman Zarathushtra as revealed in the Avesta scriptures (Gatha, Yasna and Yashts) and Pahlavi writings.
