Muktad or Fravardegan (Parsi Zoroastrian)

August 6 - August 15

Muktad

Today marks the first of ten days of commemoration, at the end of the Zoroastrian year. During this time, the community commemorates and remembers fravarshis (departed souls) with fresh flowers and a lighted oil lamp. Homes and temples are thoroughly cleaned; for it is believed that the fravashis visit the physical world during this time, to bless and protect the living.
