Behram Yazad is one of the most powerful of Yazatas. He is in charge of solving all human problems. We can overcome all our obstacles with His grace and receive the manifold blessings that He showers upon us. His story is to be recited every Tuesday and Friday with a small offering of chana, sakar and elaichi-dana. The story has miraculous benefits and grants almost any wish. Many Parsi homes follow this practice and it has its own rewards.
However, it is important to remember Behram Yazad every day, and this short Nirang, which is taken from the Behram Yasht, is indeed powerful. It is extremely effective in not only solving problems but also efficacious in keeping them away…
“Khshnaothra Ahurahe Mazdao! Ashem Vohu.
Fravarane Mazdayasno Zarathushtrish, vidaevo Ahura-tkaesho. – Relevant Geh
Ahurahe Mazdao raevato kharenanghuhato ameshanam spentanam, amahe hutastahe huraodhahe Verethraghnahe ahuradhatahe vanaintyaoshcha uparatato, khshnaothra yasnaicha vahmaicha khshnaothraicha frasestayeaecha, Yathu Ahu Vairyo zaota fra me mrute, atha ratush ashat chit hacha fra ashava vidhvao mraotu.
Ahurem Mazdam raevantem kharenanghuhentem yazamaide, amesha spenta hukhshathra hudaongho yazamaide, amem hutashtem huraodhem yazamaide, Verethraghnem ahuradhatem yazamaide, vanaintimcha uparatatem yazamaide.”
To be recited 7 times:
“Amemcha Verethraghnemcha afrinami, dva patara, dva nipatara, dva nish-haretara, dva adhvaozen, dva vidhvaozen, dva fradhvaozen, dva amerezen, dva vimarezen, dva framerezen – Yatha Ahu Vairyo
Yatha Ahu Vairyo (2)
Yasnemcha vahmemcha aojascha zaverecha afrinami, Ahurahe Mazdao raevato kharenghuhato ameshanam spentanam amahe hutashtahe huraodhahe Verethraghnahe ahuradhatahe vanaintyaoscha uparatato. Ashem Vohu.
Ahmai Raescha, Hazanghrem, Jasa Me Avanghe Mazda, Kerfeh Mazda.”
Like most of our prayers, the Behram Yasht is a long prayer and even if you recite the whole Yasht regularly, it will still take you at least 40 minutes. However, the Nirang can be recited in a few minutes. It is an alternative prayer for those who cannot find the time to do the whole Yasht.
We can all do with a little bit of Divine intervention in our lives.
Let us invite the grace of Behram Yazad!
