On 9th June, 2019 (Roj Asman, Mah Dae), the Dae Mah Jashan was performed and celebrated at the ‘Asha Vahishta’ Zoroastrian Centre Dadgah in Pune at 11:30 am. A Humbandagi followed the Jashan which was performed by four priests, after which the gathering partook the chasni, fruits and light refreshments in the open compound.
The Dadgah keeps its doors open to intermarried Parsis and their children, as also Zoroastrian enthusiasts who seek a greater understanding about the religion. Built over 5,500 square feet, the two-storeyed construction houses a community hall, a prayer hall, a library and a Dadgah fire and is open for visits 7 days a week, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The center has been receiving constant bookings to hold religious ceremonies including Machi prayers, navjotes, marriages as well as the 4-day prayer of those who have opted for cremation.
