  • Brian storming question: Why is it so necessary that to be a Moyebdar onus on the children of Mobeds. It should be available to all.
    Secondly: the prayers recited should be in a language ‘understood-comprehensible’ by the listeners.
    Thirdly: show how the listening of the prayers be put into practice in our day-to-day living.
    Fourthly: have more ‘inter faith’ discussions with other religions so as to achive the moto: ‘religion should unite(mankind) and not divide.
    Disclaimer: personal obervation of mine, your followup in the next Seminar be looked into, thank you

  • How about following the true tenets of Zarathushtra: Equality of the sexes and open the Mobedi to the women
    who want to do it. I am a Mobedyar in the US and I cannot emphasize the joy and transcendent experience when i
    pray at the jashans and Muktad. It’s time to wake up and break the patriarchy that sometimes is suffocating

  • Well spoken Jimmy
