Prayer to Spenta Armaiti from the Ahunavaiti Gatha Yasna (A Parsi Prayer)


  1. (12) Unfold Thyself within me, O Ahura,

Through Armaiti grant me Strength of Soul;
Through Thy Best Spirit, O Mazda,
Grant me goodness as reward for my prayer;
Through Asha grant full vigor of the Soul
And all embracing Love through Vohu Mano. (Gatha
Translation by Dr. Irach Taraporewala)

(13) O Ahura Mazda, for my happiness,
and to achieve the full religious knowledge,
give me in a particular fashion,
the blessings of Bahman and Shehrevar.
O Spenta Armaiti teach me through righteousness
the commandments of the religion.
(Gatha Translation by Ervad Kawasji Kangaji)

(14) Now as a dedication,
I, Zarathustra offer to the Wise One
the very life breath of myself
and the first fruits of my good mind, deeds and words,
gained through righteousness,
with my ear to the Divine voice;
in fact my whole strength. (Gatha Translation by Jafarey)
