  1. Aban(ProperNoun)

    The eighth solar month of the Persian calendar.


  1. Aban

    Apas is the Avestan language term for "the waters", which—in its innumerable aggregate states—is represented by the Apas, the hypostases of the waters. "To this day reverence for water is deeply ingrained in Zoroastrians, and in orthodox communities offerings are regularly made to the household well or nearby stream." The ape zaothra ceremony—the culminating rite of the Yasna service —is literally for the "strengthening of the waters." Avestan apas is grammatically feminine, and the Apas are female. The Middle Persian equivalents are ābān/Ābān, from which Parsi Gujarati āvā/Āvā derive. The Avestan common noun āpas corresponds exactly to Vedic Sanskrit āpas, and both derive from the same proto-Indo-Iranian word, stem *ap- "water". In both Avestan and Vedic Sanskrit texts, the waters—whether as waves or drops, or collectively as streams, pools, rivers or wells—are represented by the Apas, the group of divinities of the waters. The identification of divinity with element is complete in both cultures: In the RigVeda the divinities are wholesome to drink, in the Avesta the divinities are good to bathe in.
