Ervad Dastoor Aspandiar Dadachanji



On 15 March 2009, ZAWA celebrated the 'Ayathrem Gahambar'.  A Jashan Ceremony was organised by the ZAWA Committee, performed by Ervad Aspi Madan, Ervad Darius Pavri and making his West Australian debut, young Ervad Pearce Javat. The Jashan was attended by quite a few members of the Zoroastrian community.

After the Jashan Ceremony, a 'Humbandagi' (Group Prayer) was held.

Chairman Pervez, then introduced Ervad Pearce to the audience, after which Pearce's mum Hufrish gave a vote of thanks to Ervads Aspi and Darius, for taking Pearce under their wings and to the community at large for appreciating Pearce's efforts..

Together with the 'Chashni', everyone was asked to bring a plate, which served as a community lunch after the prayers.
