Happy Mehregan

Today is Mehregan Day, 16th day of the month of Mehr, celebrating the emergence of Mitra, the sun. "On Mehregan Day, angels came to the aid of Kaveh, the ironsmith, Fereidoon was crowned, and Zahhak was imprisoned in Damavand Mountain, freeing people of his tyranny..." Abu Reihan Birooni
فریدون چو شد بر جهان کامکار............ ندانست جز خویشتن شهریار
به رســم کیان تاج و تخت مهی.............. بیاراست با کاخ شاهنشهی
به روز خجسته ســر مهر ماه................به سر بر نهاد آن کیانی کلاه
زمانه بی اندوه گشـت از بدی................ گرفتند هر کــس ره بـخردی
دل از داوری­هـا بپرداخـتـنـد ..................به آیین، یکی، جشن نو ساختند
نـشـسـتـنـد فرزانگان، شادکام.................گـرفتند هـر یک ز ياقوت، جام
می روشن و چهره ی شاه نـَو............... جهان نو ز داد از سر ِماه نـَو
بـفـرمـود تا آتش افـروخـتـنـد................. همه عنبر و زعفران سوختند
پـرسـتـیـدن مهرگان دیـن اوسـت.............. تن آسانی و خوردن آیین اوست
کنون یادگارست از و ماه مهر................ به کوش و به رنج ایچ منمای چهر
شاهنامه­ی فردوسی

می­ستاییم مهر ِدارنده­ی دشت­های پهناور را
او که به همه­ی سرزمین­های ایرانی
خانمانی پُر از آشتی، پُر از آرامی و پُر از شادی می­بخشد

Salam Bar Banoo Neda. Thank you for that beautiful quote. "A home full of peace, full of calm, and full of joy" sounds like the best thing anyone can ever have. Superb!

Neda Jan, Mr. ! is no other than our Universal Dimension Farshad, who has so kindly invited us all to go to Taleghan sometime and be his guests! Take a look at the Taleghan post and you will see. I am very fortunate for having found Uni-Far's friendship through Alef Shin's circle of fascinating students and friends.
