Happy Celebration Of Lotus
27th June (6th Tir in Persian calendar) was Celebration of lotus in Ancient Iran (Persia). Lotus flowers had special significance in Ancient Iran and they represent purity because even though they grow from the mud they are clean.
Lotus also can be a symbol of perfection because the day of Lotus celebration is in Khordad day (The name of all 6th days of months in Persian calendar is Khordad) and Khordad means perfection.
Flowers have great place in Iranian Culture.
Love and kindness have ancient root in Iranians. From thousands of years ago, many antiquities and items have been obtained in Iran that show kindness. Here I mention some of them, although there are more like these.
Persian Gulf, Forever
National Persian Gulf Day is a very important day for the Iranian people and it is celebrated annually on April 30th
One must wash eyes, look differently to things words must be washed
The word must be wind itself, the word must be the rain itself
One must shut umbrellas
One must walk in the rain
One must carry the thought, the recollection in the rain
One must go walk in the rain with all the townsfolk
One must see friends in the rain
One must search love in the rain
Each breath is a song of love
From left and right, pass us by
We’ll return to the world above
Such fate no-one can defy.
We have come from the skies
Befriended angels in heaven
To the same place we will rise
To that city past skies seven.
We are above the skies
And angels we transcend
Why should we compromise?
The House of Songs is our end.
Molana (Rumi) Persian poet and Hakim
Iran’s National Football Team beat their hosts South Korea and qualified for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil – TEHRAN (FNA)
O friend, for the morrow let us not worry
This moment we have now, let us not hurry
When our time comes, we shall not tarry
With seven thousand-year-olds, our burden carry
Khayyam (Persian scholar and poet)
Maybe these days, Iran is famous for its nuclear activities. Maybe the name of iran comes with Bomb!!! But we can find other things in Iran. For example “13 Be dar”:
Setup the “7 Sin” is a common custom in Nowruz. Iranian people set 7 items all starting with the ‘S’ in Persian language. For example Sumac (Persian: somagh), Apple (Persian: Sib) and etc.
But there is an interesting item, Apple (Persian: Sib).
