Jashan-e Fravardegan (Zoroastrian)
Jashan-e Fravardegan is a celebration ceremony, a Jashan, performed on Fravardin day of
Fravardin month, in honor of fravashis, the souls of all the righteous people who have ever lived in
our world. In Zoroastrianism, we have special prayers dedicated to honoring and remembering with
respect and love the souls of our beloved departed as well as all the righteous souls in the universe.
Righteous people with their righteous actions throughout their lives help in progressing our world
further. Hence, in this Jashan especially, we show our respect to all such righteous souls who have
helped in the progress of our world so far, and we seek their blessings so we too can follow in their
footsteps and perform righteous actions to further the progress of our world in our lifetime.
