In Zoroastrianism, there is a long history of offering sweet-smelling woods to the Holy Fires. Today, this practice carries on with the tradition of offering sandalwood at our Agiaries and Atash Behrams.
Divos are small oil lanterns traditionally lit by Parsis when they visit an Agiary or Atash Behram. A divo is lit to ask for a blessing for our wishes. These can be lit for good fortune, for someone special, or simply to connect with God.
In the Tan-Dorosti, the Wise Lord is invoked together with the Amesha Spentas and the Yazatas in order to seek their blessings for the individual living Zoroastrians specifically mentioned in the prayer.
The Yajashne ceremony is a ritual for strength and good health, as well as a celebration of water. During the ceremony, performed in Havan Gah, two priests consecrate a vase of water over the course of about two to three hours.
The Jashan is a ceremony that is sponsored either by a community or an individual to celebrate or to bless an important event. It can be conducted for any occasion in a person's life or for the community (e.g. a seasonal Jashan).
The Vendidad by itself is usually performed after the death of a person, but it is also part of various other liturgical ceremonies such as the Nirangdin. This ceremony is performed by two priests seeking Sarosh Yazad for the advancement of the soul.
The Farishta is a ceremony which gives appreciation to all the thirty-three Farestas. This ceremony is mostly done for happiness, health and overall prosperity of the whole family.
