Generally, there are three grades of fires or Atash:
- Atash Bahram
- Atash Adaran and
- Atash Dadgah or Dar-e-Meher
The Dar-e-Meher is a non-consecrated place of worship for the followers of Zoroastrianism, the first monotheistic religion of the world. It is the lowest grade of fire requiring minimum amount of consecration rituals.
Irrespective of its grade, the Atash holds a deep religious significance for us Zoroastrians as it is pure, life-giving, dispels darkness and represents the ethical values of Asha: order, beneficence, honesty, fairness and justice.
