101 Names of God

In Zoroastrianism, 101 names of God (Pazand Sad-o-yak nam-i-khoda) is a list of names of God (Ahura Mazda). The list is preserved in Persian, Pazand and Gujarati.[1]

The 101 names are often taken during Baj (ceremonial prayer) during the Yasna ritual while continuously sprinkling with the ring made of "Hasht" (eight) metals with the hair of the pure Varasya named "Vars", into the water vessel.[2]
