English translation of
Holy Zend Avesta - Visperad

English translation by James Darmesteter, Dhalla, B. N. Dhabhar,

taken from


Homage to the Gatha Vohu-khshathra! We sacrifice to the Vohu-khshathra), (the good kingdom) even the Khshathra-vairya, the kingdom to be desired; and we sacrifice to the iron-founding, and to the (sacrificial) words correctly spoken which smite (the foe) with victory, and which hold the Daevas subject.And we worship that reward and that health, that healing and that progress, that growth and that victorious smiting

which are between the Vohu-khshathra and the Vahishtoishti, (and which are acquired by us) by the memorized recital of the good thoughts, good words, and good deeds, for the withstanding of evil thoughts, and words, and deeds; yea, for the undoing of all treacherous thoughts (directed) against me, and of all false words, and unfair deeds.

[And we sacrifice to the later Yasna, the heroic Haptanghaiti, (and which as it recurs becomes) the holy ritual chief.]
