عنوان مقاله [English]
In the 12th paragraph of the 33rd Zand of Yasna, the name of the god “Bahman” has been followed by the adjective griftār and another word whose spelling and meaning are not so clear. griftār has been rendered “acceptor” and “recipient”. In this article, with respect to the meanings of griftan and griftār, it is suggested that griftār is a passive participle and its meaning is “perceivable”. The connection between this adjective and Bahman will be demonstrated by surveying sentences and phrases from Middle Persian texts. At the end, it will be proved that this word and that one which follows it, should be read griftārōmand and this latter one be rendered as “perceivable”.
