the old Peshdadian Dynasty which lasted 700 years, introduced the solar calendar to his people and declared the first day of the vernal equinox a festival bearing his name. This decision corresponded with a Persian tradition that the world was created at the vernal equinox, the world’s original creation being echoed in the annual rebirth of life as spring sets in. The seasonal change from dormancy to growth reflects a deeper philosophical principle which suggests that these ceremonies and discoveries of Jamshedji Nauroz had a Masonic derivation.
The religious basis of Parsee Fire Worship is Zoroastrian dogma. Zoroastrianism rests on an absolute distinction between light and dark, good and evil, truth and falsehood. There is no moral or metaphysical relativism to blur e edges of moral categories. The believer is taught to distinguish clearly between right and wrong, embracing e first and abhorring the last. He is enjoined to seek ght and to shun darkness, ever to nurture in himself the spiritual and beneficial while shedding gross material interests and desires:
The feast of Jamshedji Nauroz, taking place at the vernal equinox and placing such stress on a dualistic interpretation of life, is definitely Masonic in character. Its philosophy complements the ideals of the Craft and reveals how fundamental and timeless the principles of Freemasonry are to all humanity.

Conclusion Christian, Jew, Parsee—each keeps the festival of the vernal equinox in his own manner whether it is the observation of Holy Thursday, the Passover, or Jamshedji Nauroz. Each event—appropriate to its special significance—is combined in the Mystic Banquet which the Brethren of the Scottish Rite celebrate on Maundy Thursday. Here the Rite commemorates the dignity and divine origin of man. It sees the essential truth which structures each ritual. In the diversity of image, place and detail that each observance affords, the Rite brings into clear focus the elemental lesson of rebirth, freedom and fraternity. the midst of life’s fleeting shadows, these rituals shed a bright light that reveals an abiding hope, a sustaining confidence in man’s innate ability to be reborn. Like nature in spring, we can shed the burdensome winter of selfish materialism and spiritual decay. We can bring forth new fruits of personal and communal accomplishment. Man is a part of nature and made with the same hand that brought light and shape to an earth which “was without form and void.” [Genesis 1: 2] Both nature and man are images of God; both came from the divine plan of The Great Architect of the Universe. The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry has embodied this truth in Maundy Thursday, a ritual that fuses the great religions of man into a single unified statement of divine purpose and human capability. Let us join in this observance, a sublime celebration of light, freedom and Fraternity.
The Parsee Jamshedji Nauroz teaches us ever to value truth and virtue. The Jewish Passover underlines the alliance between man and God, a covenant built on freedom and dedicated to liberating man from all domination whatever its form may be. The Christian Holy Thursday brings us the absolute, New Commandment: “love one another.” The Scottish Rite observance of Maundy Thursday is like a mighty river into which many streams feed. It combines the strengths of each tributary making the confluence into one clear channel of faith and action. Refined from age to age and country to country, the one Masonic message comes to us in the Craft and Nature herself so underlines.
Extinguishing of the Lights
Follow the Rituals
Each observance is at or near March 21, the vernal equinox. As the earth brings forth life, these special days point to man’s spiritual rebirth. Each promises that the rvlystic Quest for the Lost Word will meet with success. Man will find a reality that is seen with more than eyes. In
Banquet and Mystic Banquet The memorandum of Brother Samuel I. Jacobs’, California Orient Coordinator for Ritual, and my related Decision will clarify this subject.
It is hard to conceive of any ritual more beautiful and inspiring or any ceremony in Masonry more soulstirring and profound, than our Maundy Thursday Service, which includes the Tenebrae (Extinguishing the Lights) and the Feast of the Paschal Lamb, or as it is often called, The Mystic Banquet, or Feast Obligatory. To our Jewish Brethren it signifies the Feast of the Passover, which is an annual reminder of the priceless heritage of freedom and a call to struggle for it by eternal vigilance. To our Christian Brethren it signifies the Last Supper Jesus and His Disciples attended to celebrate this ancient festival, after which there followed His death and resurrection.
method of bringing to our minds those great moral truths with which we already have been indoctrinated. It is in that spirit that we assemble, as Masons and as Brethren, bound with solemn ties and no thought of any particular creed or religion.
The Passover was a festival instituted to commemorate Jehovah’s “passing over” the Israelite houses while “passing through” those of the Egyptians in order to destroy them. In the early history of these celebrations a lamb without blemish was taken on the lath and killed on the 14th day of the Hebrew month Abib, which occurred at the spring of the year. The blood of the lamb was to be sprinkled on the two side posts and the upper door post, and the flesh eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs before the morning. Jehovah, passing over the blood stained doors, slew the first born in the Egyptian houses not similarly protected. St. Paul likens the Paschal Feast to the resurrection of Christ, but no matter what the interpretation, in Masonry it has no creedal significance. To our Brethren of the Rose Croix it is known as the Mystic Banquet, and it is obligatory for every Knight Rose Croix, on Maundy Thursday, to break bread with a Brother and partake of a portion of roasted lamb. This beautiful Ceremony is but another
Our Illustrious Sovereign Grand Commander, Henry C. Clausen, 330, has commented to me that in at least one Valley in our Orient, where the members had gathered for dinner prior to the Ceremony of Extinguishing the Lights, reference to the Mystic Banquet was completely omitted and no reference was made at that time or afterward to the symbols. These symbols, which should be explained to the Knights attending the Ceremonies, are as follows:
The Matzo, or unleavened bread, also called bread of affliction. It is symbolic of the bread which the Hebrews made when they hastily left Egypt, because they did not have enough time to allow their dough to leaven. The Matzo is the most important symbol of the Passover.
2. The Moror or bitter herb (represented with a small slice of horseradish), symbolic of the hardships which the Israelites endured when they were slaves in Egypt. 3. The Haroses, a kind of paste of apples, nuts, and raisins, symbolic of the mortar the Israelites used when they were slaves in the construction for the Pharaoh of the treasure cities Pithom and Ramses.
