Update on our next Shahnameh Khani Session

Ba  Doroud bar hameye doostan

Our regular date for the next session would have been Sunday, September 28th. Unfortunately, that day would not work for me. So I thought we might be able to have our next session on Sunday, October 5th. I have contacted IAB to see if Khaneh Iran is available on October 5th. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from them. The session after that will be on Sunday October 26th which would be the fourth Sunday of October and our regular date.

We will continue with the story of Rostam va Sohrab in our next session and hopefully finish that.

We will start our next story on 10/26/14. We will study the story of Bijan va Manijeh. Our source will be “Shahnameh.pdf” that can be downloaded from the site:

Dr. Javad Moulai was kind enough to download and compress the pages so there would be less printing required. Thank you.

I will provide a scanned copy on this blog before we start the story so we can print the compressed form.

Thanks and save the October 5th date. I will confirm that as soon as I hear back from IAB.
