Parsi man praying

Parsi man praying

Several of the Hindu prayers are in Sanskrit but all of Zoroastrian prayers are in the dead East Iranian Avestan language.

Most Parsis I have known do not understand or speak the language.

While they generally have an idea what they are praying for, no one I know of can offer a translation of their prayers.
