Description

Dear Community,

A team of our Mobeds will be performing Muktad Prayers at AZA Darbe Meher on 6 out of 10 Muktad days in August this year. All Zoroastrians, their families and friends are welcome to attend the prayers.

Muktad prayers will start on the first day of Muktad (Saturday 6th August) after setting up of ‘Karasyas’ (flower vases). There will be no prayers on the next four days from 7th to 10th August at AZA Darbe Meher. Muktad prayers will resume for each of the five Gatha days from Thursday 11th to Monday 15th August.

Prayers will start at 10.30 AM on each day

All Zoroastrians and their families – AZA members or non-members – who wish to have Muktad prayers for their departed relatives, are requested to:

Submit the name of each departed relative in the following format to Mithi Daver by email () or call her on 0414470410:

Behdin or Osta/Osti/Ervad for the departed’s First name, followed by

Behdin or Osta/Osti/Ervad for the individual’s father’s or husband’s First name

For example, Behdin Rustom, Behdin Shapur or Osta Rustom Ervad Shapur.

A charge of $50 will be levied for up to two departed relatives’ names and $100 for a maximum of up to 6 names. All proceeds (after expenses for fruits and nuts) will be donated to AZA. Please pay via the AZA website or pay cash to Mithi Daver for the prayers and for flowers on or before the first day of prayers i.e. Saturday August 6. The link for payment is https://aza.org.au/product/shahenshai-muktad-prayers/

Please ensure that your own karasyo/vase (labelled with your name) is delivered to Mithi or Pheroza at AZA Darbe Meher by 10 AM on 6th August. You must collect the karasyo/vase or arrange to have it collected after prayers conclude.
Prayers at the AZA Darbe Meher will commence at 10.30am each day starting on August 6th and then on the five Gatha days 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th
The final night’s prayers will be held on 16th at 12.45 AM

For those who have submitted names of the departed, please make sure that Mithi Davar has your vase for flowers before the start of the Muktad prayers. If you are arriving half to one hour before the start of prayers on the first day of Muktad on 6th August, you may help putting flowers in the vase. Payment is preferred in advance via the link above.

Mithi will be able to accept names of the departed for the prayers until 5 PM on 5th August

A note about Muktad in two places – “Ervad Ramiyar Karanjia has advised that Muktad prayers for a departed person can be recited in two places. Although the vase should be placed only at one place of worship as per our rituals, it is completely up to the respective family to decide as per their comfort and convenience.”

The Committee would like to thank all participating Mobeds, especially Viraf and Percy for offering the night prayers, Peshotan Katrak, Mithi Davar, Pheroza Daruwalla & Soonoo Dubash, Jessie Doctor, Pervin Young & Anisha Parakh for all of their contributions.

Best regards,
AZA Management Committee
