Ashavan Chants for Regular Days

The Ashavan Chants were one of the first spiritual practices given to us by Kshathra Vairya, Himself.It is encouraged for all Ashavan to learn and practice the Ashavan Chants, daily, so they become second nature.

One of the added benefits to the Ashavan Chants is that, by the regular practice of them, the Ashavan is calling upon Mithra and the Teacher of Light daily, at least ten times a day as directed by the New Mithraic Covenant.

(Note: The word “Niyayishen” is from the Ashavan Lexicon and means “Praise”.)

“The Ashavan Chant to the Teacher of Light* should be one of the closest of all the Ashavan chants since it is brought to the ears of the Teacher of Light and eventually to the hands of Mithra.”-Kshathra Vairya
*(Niyayishen Mir Eresh Zademir)
