According to Yasna 32.8 Yima divides the flesh of the bull among men. The author thinks that it is one of rituals of the New Year and Yima himself is the lord of the sacrificial feast with which the New Year festival sets in.It is supposed that Yima's festival took place round the Vara, an instance of which is the Ka'ba i Zardošt and there held successive Achaemenian kings, who were Yimas also, the ceremonies of accession.
