Yasna 28


  1. In humble adoration, with hands outstretched
    I pray to Thee, O Mazda!
    First of all, through Thy Holy spirit vouchsafe to me
    All righteousness of action, all wisdom of the Good Mind,
    That I may thereby bring joy to the Soul of Creation.

  2. O Wise Lord, by virtue of the Good Mind,
            may I reach Thy Presence.
    Grant me the blessings in both worlds,
            the corporeal and the spiritual,
            attainable through Righteousness;
    Thy rewards which bring beatific happiness
            to the faithful blessed with them.

  3. As never before, I shall weave my songs for Thee,
            O Mazda Ahura,
    And for Thee, O Spirits of Truth and the Good Mind,
    Then, shall Armaity, the Spirit of Benevolence,
            make the imperishable Dominion of Heaven flourish.
    For that perfection, come ye all to my invocations.

  4. I shall take the awakened soul to the exalted abode
            with the help of the Good Mind;
    Knowing the blissful rewards of the Wise Lord
            for righteous deeds;
    As long as i have power and am able,
    I shall teach all to seek for Truth and Right.

  5. O Asha, equipped with the knowledge of Truth and Righteousness,
    When shall I see Thee, and Vohu-Mana too!
    And through that Inspiration (Sraosha), when shall I
            be in the presence of the Most Beneficent Mazda!
    With the proclamation of these sacred words shall we
            make the evil ones turn toward Thee O Holy Mazda!

  6. Come, O Eternal Wise Spirit, through the Good Mind,
    With the long lasting gift of Righteousness
            vouchsafed in Thy sublime words.
    Grant unto Zarathushtra, and to us all
            Thy gracious help, O Ahura,
    Whereby we may overcome the evil of wrong-doers.

  7. Grant me, O Truth, the blessing which is the fruit
            of the Good Mind.
    Grant me, O Piety, to me and to Vishtaspa,
            our desire for effectiveness,
    And grant, O Mazda, sovereign Lord,
    That reciting Thy holy words of revelation
    I may make Thy felicitous message heard.

  8. O Thou, Best One, in accord with the Highest Truth,
    The best blessing, I beseech of Thee for
            noble Frashaoshtra and for me.
    And mayest Thou grant to us, for all time,
            the gift of the Good Mind.

  9. And blessed with these bounties, we who have
            always offered our songs of praise to Thee,
    We shall not displease Thee, O Mazda,
    Or Ye, O Truth, and the Best Mind;
    Ye, who are the most helpful to promote
            the Dominion of Blessedness.

  10. Those whom Thou knowest as full worthy, by reason
            of their Righteousness and Good Mind,
    For those, do Thou fulfill their desire for attainment,
            O Mazda Ahura.
    For I well know that the words of these song offerings
            to Thee directed to righteous ends
    Will have their blissful effect.

  11. And through these divine songs, for evermore shall I preserve
    Righteousness and Good Mind for the people.
    To enable me to apprise all, teach me O Mazda Ahura,
    Through Thine own Spirit and Thine own Words,
            the principle of creation of the first existence.
