Nowruz: one of the world's oldest festivals "My paleness is yours, your colour is mine!" The Iranian New Year celebration "Nowruz" has been a feature of Persian culture for more than 2,500 years. The roots of this festival lie in the ancient Persian religion of Zoroastrianism. Today, more than 300 million people all over the world celebrate Nowruz. Shohreh Karimian looks back at the history of this new year celebration and explains some of its customs "Eyd-e Nowruz", which literally translates as "celebration of the New Day", is an age-old festival marked every year at the start of spring, at the equinox on 20 or 21 March. When daylight triumphs over the darkness of night, nature regenerates itself and the old and burdensome falls away, the Persian New Year begins. Nowruz is a festival of joy, hope and the family that was celebrated even before the era of the Persian Achaemenid Great Kings, and is deeply anchored in ancient Persian, pre-Islamic culture. The "Shahnameh" (Book of Kings), which was written i ...

Nowruz (Simply Explained!) نوروز How much do you know about Persian New Year called Nowruz? Did you know that there is an equivalent for Santa Claus in Persian culture called Uncle Nowruz? Or did you know that you might have guests at your home at 3 a.m., right after the arrival of Nowruz? Nowruz is the name of the Persian New Year and marks the First day of Spring. It has been celebrated for more than 3000 years not only in Iran, but in other countries as well. Celebrating Nowruz has become so widespread that in 2010, United Nation's General Assembly recognized the International Day of Nowruz. Canadian Parliament also added Nowruz to the national calendar of Canada in 2009. So what does Nowruz mean? The word "Nowruz" is a Persian compound word, consisting of two words: "No" ,meaning "New" [pause] and Ruz , meaning "Day". Nowruz, therefore means that a "New Day" has begun, signaling the beginning of the new year. Interestingly, despite its popularity around the world, there is little agreement on the ...

Thanks to a very dear friend to visit Nowruz they met and talked several different fields. Speech of the President of America, and the point that he should have mentioned it in his speech. After the talks were not going to post it for him. If you're willing to do it. Sincerely Fereidoon You can send a message like this: The Honorable Barack H. Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Dear Mr. President, As a United States citizen of Iranian ancestry, I would like to express my appreciation for taking time out of your busy schedule to send a message for the Persian New Year (Nowruz). Your approach of giving diplomacy a chance is quite admirable. With all due respect, however, I am concerned, sir, that there was no reference to Iran's dismal human rights record in your message. The government in Tehran continues to ignore international norms on freedom of religion by harassing religious minorities including the Baha'is, Jews, and Sunnis. I do hope that you use your high office ...
It was Persian New Year. Our family got together. Then this happened.
International events not working out to US favor: Leader Leader of the Islamic revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says developments worldwide are not working out according to US plans. “The realities on the global stage are not going according to US wishes,” Ayatollah Khamenei said. The Leader made the remarks in an address to a large crowd of people in Iran's northeastern city of Mashhad on the occasion of Nowruz (Persian New Year) on Friday. Pointing to the failure of US plots to Judaize Palestine as well as the futility of its scenarios in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, the Leader said Washington has failed to achieve its goals. Ayatollah Khamenei said the US-Israeli conspiracy in Palestine is aimed at clearing Palestine of Palestinians, whether Muslims or Christians. “The US has failed in Palestine. They devised a scheme against Palestine and spared no efforts [in carrying it out],” the Leader said. “The scheme has [so far] failed and God willing will not succeed [in the future]. They ha ...
the occasion of the Nowrooz holiday, or Persian New Year, that his country has decided to double the number of visas for Iranian pilgrims. This would increase the number from 80,000 to 160,000. Al-Shahri said that the Saudi embassy in Tehran would stamp 6,000 visas a day instead of 3,000 in order to accommodate the increase in the number of visitors. Observers said that this announcement signals improving relations between Saudi and Iran. Another sign of the improving relations more generally between Iran and the Gulf States, observers noted, is the visit of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Muscat, Oman two weeks ago. It was the first official visit for him since he was elected president. Saudi-Iranian relations have long been plagued by high degrees of tension over several issues. Saudi has refused several attempts by the Iranian president to visit Riyadh. However, the second largest Arab state has recently started to send indirect messages to Iran. Saudi changed its policies regarding Syria as it ...

Sadly though I have been mostly in the photo on the right working in my courier business 12 to 14 hours a day which was needed to pay the bills. Working on it though. Happy new year.

Blessings of Love Peace and Unity. Happy Nowruz to all of my dear friends around the world ~ which is every person, our animal and plant kingdoms, all of the beings in every form and our beloved Water on Earth. Xx We've stepped through the equinox on Friday and into the Persian new year. The equinox is the time when day & night are nearly exactly the same length - 12 hours all over the world, and in the Persian calendar marks the start of Spring. Nowruz ( New Day) has a beautiful space in my heart as Its an ancient festival that starts at the beginning of Spring and celebrates the rebirth of nature. ( being here in Australia I can still feel the Earths happiness going into Spring in the North) Persians have a haftseen alter decorated with 7 items, each being a symbol of Spring and renewal. I can feel the renewal in my life right now, and am feeling the Joy of celebrating the new Tribe Heart in April- being in the Western, Eastern and Persian New Years.

In honor of my friend Janet's birthday, I made biryani for dinner. Because her birthday falls on or near Navroz (Persian New Year), we had a tradition of cooking Parsi food for her birthday dinner. She moved away last year (sniff), but the tradition carries on. The good news: the biryani smells super tasty. The bad news: dinner is really late. Sound familiar? :)
Since I'm Iranian, I celebrate nowrooz (the Persian new year, which fell on the 20th this month). I guess that means I can start a New Years resolution all over again!

Promising myself I'm going to stop and get on the right track.

WRITE A LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF IRAN AND WISH THEM A HAPPY NEW YEAR LIKE I DID. PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST NOW! Dear Alan, Have you ever wondered what life is really like in Iran? Lost in all the debate over foreign policy are conversations about people’s everyday lives -- about the things we all have in common and the very basic reasons why we don’t want to see war. We very rarely go to war with people we feel like we know or relate to - that’s why individuals talking to each other is so important. Last year, through Berim’s ‘Letters from Iran’ project, hundreds of Iranians sent us letters full of questions and stories to celebrate the Holiday Season and the New Year. This week Iranians all over the world will be celebrating Norooz, the Persian New Year. Would you like to write a letter to Iranians wishing them a happy new year and sharing your thoughts and questions when it comes to their country? We’ll translate your letters and use social media to reach Iranians in Iran to make sure they . ...

Kholov will hold concerts during Iran's 2nd International Nowruz Celebrations which he will attend along with Tajik president from March 26-28, 2011, Mehr News Agency reported. Iran will host senior officials from the Persian-speaking states of Tajikistan and Afghanistan who will join representatives from the countries that celebrate Nowruz such as Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Iraq, Albania, and Turkey. Davlatmand Kholov is an expert in the southern folk genre of Tajik music called Falak and is best known for his works on traditional instruments of Dotar, Qeychak, and Setar.

For want of a plane ticket and one night in a hotel I could ask some very important people some very interesting questions. LOL! *** I hate being poor. ;) The point of this post however is to point out that the Persian New Year, which this event at the U.N. is celebrating, falls on the 9th day of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, March 20th 2013. That is the anniversary of Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem, and it is the same day that Obama will make his first state visit to Israel, Jerusalem in particular. I just thought that we should add this to the growing list of "coincidences" surrounding Obama's visit to Israel. Prophecy is unfolding around us every single day folks. To be honest, it's exhilarating and frightening all ...
Watched "Argo" last night: as you know, it's based on a real story with some "additions" to it. While watching I was thinking, "Oh, this really looks like Sultanahmet and Grand Bazaar", in fact, it was Sultanahmet, Grand Bazaar and at some moments, Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. I was curious where they were shooting this movie. Turned to be California. I kinda forgot: there are lots of Persians live in Southern California. When I lived in San Diego, we had them in our School, and my friend was dating a Persian guy. In fact, celebrating Nouruz (Persian New Year) was lots of fun, dancing and delicious food. And, yes, I read about Tom Mendez today.

Aurangzeb: Piety Versus Impropriety Aurangzeb has been variously described as a bigot and rigid moralist by most scholars of the Mughal period. The moot question here is was he so much of a bigot and moralist that he completely escaped the Mughal passion for the royal revelry so passionately displayed by his forefathers. Did he eschew the two Ws (Wine and Women), one S (Song) and one O (Opium) that lent so much colour to the lives of his predecessors. On the surface at least the answer must be yes. Aurangzeb, definitely cast his courtiers into gloom when he banned the nine day bazaar (also referred to as the Meena Bazaar) introduced by his great grandfather Akbar to enliven the already decadent lives of his (Akbar’s courtiers). The bazaar was introduced to take the Nauroz (Persian New Year) celebrations to fresh heights of excited debauchery and debauched it was – Jahangir in his own memoirs has described the Nauroz celebrations of March 11 or 12, 1606 as follows: ``Singers and players of all bands a ...

The European Fatwa Council; made up of 20 of the worlds greatest Muslim Jurists, stated that it is permissible to greet people on these days (exchange gifts even) as long as it does not involve approving any creedal differences between us, or open evil (drinking and so on).

[ii] The U.S. Treasury Dept. long ago designated Iran’s Central Bank for supporting terrorism. The massive inflation caused by sanctions has increasingly harmed Iranian nuclear ambitions. Obama’s blatant ploy to win reelection loosens the noose. Obama banned terms that help define the current Islamic w ...
