    داستان هوشنگ و نهادن جشن سده

    Hooshang, discovers fire and its many potential benefits. Then he worships through this precious element to God. This is the beginning of many professions and people start to live a more comfortable life under his rule and wisdom. He then makes canals to bring water near human dwellings.
    The very day he discovered the fire remains a holly fiest, the fiest of Sadeh, as a legacy of King Hooshang.

    پادشاهی گیومرت سی سال بود

    پادشاهی گیومرت سی سال بود

    Gayomart, the "mortal being", in Shahnameh is the very first king, civilization and human communities start with him. Ferdowsi does not follow the mainstream Zoroasterain story as told in Avesta. It is important to mention that there were several versions of the story as recorded by few historians including Abu-Reyhan and Estakhri.

    گفتار اندر ستایش امیرک منصور و سلطان محمود

    In these two final fragments of the Shahnameh introduction, Ferdowsi pays tribute to his friend and supporter Amirak Mansoor and the second part which is one of the most controversial parts of the Shahnameh, Setayesh e Soltan Mahmood. This part said to be added later when Ferdowsi decided to present it to the great king of Iran then.

    گفتار اندر داستان ابو منصور دقیقی، گفتار اندر داستان دوست مهربان

    Abu Mansoor e Daghighi starts the Shahnameh in young age but as Ferdousi explains he gets murdered in a fight. How ever Young Ferdowsi with encouragement of a close friend dares continuing what Daghighi had already started. These verses clearly show evidence of Pahlavi knowledge of Hakim Ferdousi.

Great Effort, Great Results

hey i'm really glad that this is still going on. i stopped listening once i let go of my old ipod and started boycotting itunes for a while. i didnt think id be able to find this podcast again --not, at least, on the itunes directory pages. very proud to have shahname on my iphone, and very thankful of amir for continuing, despite all business, to generate more heart-warmening, mind-carrassing Shahname sessions for all of us around the world.
i'm waiting for someone to do a recitation of the masnavi. there is a stupid english one already, but thats stupid. i want a persian one. if no one does it, i'm going to start doing it myself. ill prob read half the things wrong but at least ill learn while trying. hmm..

shahname's the best!

i am persian and i love ferdousi and his great great work, The Shahname. i like the idea of this podcast but there are some problems with it. rostam never mentions the names Mohammad nor Ali but the podcaster seems to be more interested in this section. the relationship between rostam and god is clear and with no prophet mohammad or any other obstacle. it is such a disappointment that most persians look at this small section of the shahname and are fascinated by it Religious Significance while there are many more beautiful sections. i give this podcast a 5 because im persian and shahname is awsome!
