A colleague just asked me about Oil blocks in Iran. This is NEWS to me and it should be news to all Iranians as our beloved Prime Minister Mohamed #Mossadegh #Nationalized Oil and Gas as a national treasure. The danger of privatizing oil and gas is not simply because the explorer can get a great deal by bribing someone but who will be the benefactor? This news should cause a national outrage and uproar among Iranians because Iranian blood and sweat and treasure is likely to end up in someone’s private offshore account instead of the treasury to run the country.

Truly majestic Shah Abbass Mosque, this mosque was built during the Shah Abbass and was specially built for himself. He prayed in this mosque and the other mosque, with green/ blue tone was built for his favorite wife.

"امشاسپندان کیستند و واژه امشاسپند چه معنایی دارد؟

امشاسپندان ایزدان آفریده اهورامزدا؛ و به گفتاری، صفات پسندیده و سپند (مقدس) پروردگار هستند که از مردمان و آفریدگان نیک نگاهبانی می کنند. این واژه از دو پارۀ «امَشَ» (بیمرگ و جاویدن)، و «سپند» یعنی (مقدس و پاک) ساخته شده است. امشاسپند در اوستا «اَمِشَه سپَنتَه» آمده است و در زبان پهلوی بصورت امشاسپند درآمده. در بسیاری جایها، از امشاسپندان بعنوان فرشتگان نزدیک به بارگاه خداوند یاد شده است (مانند برهان قاطع) . نام‌های امشاسپندان اولین بار در گاهان زرتشت در یسن "هپتنگهایتی" یسن ۹ بند ۳ برده می‌شود. امشاسپندان نمایانگر آزرم (=احترام) بی پایان ایرانیان به آخشیجهای (=عناصر) چهارگانه و نیروهای طبیعی و مینوی که آفریدگان اهورامزدا، خدای یکتا هستند می باشند.
در برابر امشاسپندان که نماینده برترین صفات هستند، "دیوان" هستند که نمایانگر صفات بد و در حقیقت واژگونۀ صفات امشاسپندان بشمار می روند. هرچند "دیو" در میان آریاییان باستان ایزدی بوده و نیک بشمار می آمده – (بطوریکه حتی در زبانهایی مانند اسپانیایی، فرانسه و لاتین نام "خدا" از واژۀ "دیو" آریایی گرفته شده و هنوز در زبان هندی مفهوم دِو ="دیو" نیکو و پسندیده است- Dios اسپانیایی، Dieu فرانسوی، و Deusلاتین)؛ اما در میان ایرانیان این مفهوم با دگرگونی روبرو شده و برای آفریدگان اهریمنی بکار رفته است.
شش امشاسپند عبارت‌اند از:
۱- وُهومَن یا وهمن یا بهمن Vohu Mana,: به معنی اندیشه نیک، ایزد اندیشه و خرد، موکل بر چارپایان سودمند است و هماورد اصلی او "اکومن"(اندیشه بد) می‌باشد. نماد بهمن گل یاس سپید و نیز گل بهمن سپید و سرخ است.
۲- اشه وهیشتَ؛ یا اردیبهشت Aša Vahištā: به معنی برترین راستی. زیباترین امشاسپند و پاسبان راستی و حقیقت و پشتیبان آتش است. هماورد اصلی او "اندر" یا همان "ایندرا" می‌باشد.
۳- خشتره وَییریه ، شهریور Xšaθra Vairya: پادشاهی آرزوشده، به معنی شهریاری آرمانی خدا بر کیهان، شهریور پشتیبان فلزات است و دیو هماورد او نیز "ساوول" است.
۴- سپنته آرمَئیتی؛ سپندارمذ (اسفند) Spənta Ārmaiti: فروتنی و پاکی و ویژگی (خلوص)؛ که نگاهبان زمین و بانوان و موکل بر باروری است و هماورد او "ناگهیس" به شمار می‌رود.
۵- هیوروتات؛ خرداد Haurvatāt,: به معنی رسایی و کمال، پشتیبان آب بوده و در برابر دیوی به نام "تریز". در نامه "بُندَهِش" اینگونه آمده که نماد ویژۀ خرداد گل سوسن است.
۶- امورتات، امرداد Amərətāt: به معنی بی‌مرگی و جاودانگی، موکل بر گیاهان بوده و رقیب "زریز" است. نماد امرداد گل چَمپاک (زنبق) است.
از میان این امشاسپندان، سه تن نماد مادینه (مونث) ؛ و سه تن نماد نرینه (مذکر) دارند. بهمن، اردیبهشت و شهریور با نماد نرینه، و خرداد و امرداد و اسفند با نماد مادینه یاد شده اند."

Story
Tagline
Ghazal Omid, Executive Director for Iran & its Future.org
Introduction

Ghazal Omid is an award-winning author, commentator, lecturer, and religious scholar.  Born and raised in Iran of Kurdish-Persian ancestry, Omid is a Canadian citizen and a U.S legal permanent resident. Drawing from her diverse heritage, Omid has dedicated her life to finding common ground between people of all faiths and backgrounds. A leading commentator on cultural and religious affairs, Omid has published an award-winning memoir, Living In Hell, and has provided hundreds of radio interviews and television appearances, including appearances on leading cable news networks such as Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and CSPAN.  In addition, Omid has consulted for members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives on matters pertaining to Iran, human rights, and the peaceful integration of Islam into American society.

Omid is the founder and executive director of Iran & Its Future.org, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural exchange and understanding. Through a variety of arts and education programs, Iran & Its Future.org has distinguished itself as a vital bridge between the Muslim and western world. Under Omid’s stewardship, Iran & Its Future.org has spearheaded a number of groundbreaking cross-cultural initiatives, such as founding an online Iranian and Persian art museum, establishing a dental exchange program, and sponsoring a performance and concert series featuring some of the Iran’s most compelling artists and musicians. In working closely with a wide range of NGOs, individual philanthropists, international organizations and governments, Iran & Its Future.org has been an instrumental force for correcting misrepresentations and misconceptions about the Iranian people while heralding the rich legacy of Persian artistic and democratic achievements.

Omid’s latest project, Mr. Nightingale, is a children’s story that tells the tale of a young girl and her best friend and pet bird, Mr. Nightingale. With its moving prose and delightful illustrations, Mr. Nightingale reinforces a timeless message of compassion and generosity.
 
 


A large portion of the proceeds of the book will be used to provide medical treatment for eight Iranian children who were disfigured in a 2006 fire accident. Over the last six years, these children have been unable to afford surgery and medical care to restore their limbs and faces. Through the hard work of Iran & Its Future.org and its countless supporters and allies, Mr. Nightingale hopes to finally provide the funding and resources necessary to transport the children to the United States where they will receive the care they need.
