Ardibesht is Pehelvi for the original Avesta words ‘Asha Vahishta’ representing the energy of fire, both spiritual and temporal including visible and tangible fires like the flame, tangible fires like the sunlight and light from other astral bodies, and also, the invisible, intangible cosmic energies like the life giving energy which permeates every quark, electron and atom. In Zoroastrianism, therefore, Asha Vahishta is the energy nourishing and guiding the entire creation towards its pre-ordained phenomena for occurrence in and at its pre-ordained time.
Asha is the natural Law of this Universal creation, the Tao, the Dao. It is, thus, understood as The Truth, the Righteousness the following of the Divine order on which the Universe runs like the change of seasons, the day/night cycle, ‘all that goes up must come down’, rotation and revolution of astral spheres and such other phenomena over which we as humans have little or no control. Vahishta mean the very best.
It therefore stands to reason that invoking Ardibesht Ameshaspend is to invoke all other energies in their most primal form, in their earliest, initial stages ; be these energies of light, sound, sensation or any other. In Zoroastrianism, Ardibesht Ameshaspend epitomizes the beginning and so, the interrelationship of all energy.
The energies that devolve from Ardibesht , in direct descent, would then be energies like Behram Yazad (energies that hew down resistance put up by Ahriman and Angre Manyu), Adar Yazad (Fire manifested on earth).
The second month of the Zoroastrian year is dedicated to Ardibesht and the third day of every month.
