Deeso takes place in June, on Khorshed roz, Dae mah (11th day, 10th month).
This is the day on which the death anniversary of the Prophet Zoroaster
symbolically falls. Special prayers are recited and Zoroastrians go to the
Fire Temple to pray. This day is an occasion of mourning and lectures and
discourses are held on the life and works of the Prophet.
