Persian Fall Harvest (Mehregan) Party in Los Angeles

Iranian American Chamber of Commerce (AKA Coalition of Iranian Entrepreneurs) will have a Persian Fall Harvest (Mehregan) party in Los Angeles. It will be held in Crowne Plaza Hotel in Beverly Hills on Monday evening October, 5, 2009. I have the honor of being the president of this Chamber.

According to NIPOC. org, Originating in the ages of ancient Persia, Mehregan was the Persian Festival of Autumn that has been adopted and revived once again for festivity in recent times to celebrate the deep history and culture of the Persian ethnicity. This celebration is dedicated to the beliefs and principles that are as old as the Persian race itself, dating back to 6,000 years ago.

Mehregan, which is termed Mehrejan in Arabic and Mithrakana in Latin, was created to honor the Persian Goddess called Mehr. This goddess symbolizes Light, Love, Knowledge, Truth, Covenant, Commitment, Strength, and Peace. Her name, which is also referred to as Mithra, signifies kindness, love, and goodness in the Persian language.
