SAROSH BAAJ PART IV — A TRANSLITERATION
In the Avesta the Sarosh Baaj is one consolidated prayer, I have broken it into parts for better comprehension of the things we appeal for to the Ultimate, every morning when we pray the Sarosh Baaj.
Sarosh Baaj part IV, consists of transliteration of the Yasnemcha Vahmemcha, Hazem Garem, ‘Kerfe Mazda’.
On reading the entire Sarosh Baaj prayers in English, one understands that after a Zoroastrian sings the praise of Sarosh Yazad and boldly professes through Fravarane Mazdeyasno, his faith in the religion handed down by Ahura Mazda and propagated by the Prophet Zoroaster, the adherent turns to Ahura Mazda for succour against persecution, both personal and religious, and abjures the destructive mind emanating from the evil of Ahriman and Angre Mainyu (Kemna Mazda).
Then in Yasnemcha Vahmemcha, the Zoroastrian asks Ahura Mazda for strength, and enlightenment to follow the Right Path (Asha) to prosperity.
Next, the Zoroastrian believer declares his delight in having professed the Zoroastrianism by articulating his desire to be born within the religion time and time again, ad nauseam.
For his piety and sticking to the Path of Asha, the adherent of Zoroastrianism appeals to Ahura Mazda for the blessings of the various Energies that originate in Him.
To me, the brilliance and strong aura, physical strength, bodily comforts, success in this world, wealth of all happiness, children with innate intelligence, longest life ever, enlightenment born of holiness and purity, and attainment of the heaven with all the comforts/happiness . May my wish be fulfilled!
A Thousand heavenly births; Ten thousand heavenly births; A Thousand heavenly births; Ten thousand heavenly births; A Thousand heavenly births; Ten thousand heavenly births.
‘JASHME AVANGE MAZDA’
Come to my aid O Hormazd! Succour me the aid of: The innately pure/ good, beautiful, Um (energy that imbues courage), Behram Yazad issued forth from Hormazd, Vannati Upartat (energy that oversees environment), Mino Ram (nourishes/ induces of nourishment in food), Vaey Yazad (who works in exists in the upper layers of the atmosphere), O Vaey Yazad, that part of you that is concerned with the birth of the Spentomino, The Sky that acts in accordance with the natural laws of creation, Limitless existence (infinity), The Guaranteed Perpetuity.
For the Liberation, as my sins so may I in return, receive the reward for the essence of my deeds, for the love of the soul sent to all on the seven continents, the reward is as per spiritual merit to all the pious — tremendous amount of purity/ holiness (Ashoi), as wide as the earth, as long as the river and as exalted as Khorshed May the pious live long! May my wish be fulfilled!
At the end of this entire sequence of prayers for the Sarosh Baaj, Zoroastrians pray the ‘Tandarosti’ for the well being of self, family, friends in particular and the cosmos in general.
