The Soul in Zoroastrianism

"Those are what we call faravahars, which are really the souls either of a person or of the dead in general, and when you see the faravahars painted over the person, it symbolizes the importance of his soul If the soul has been perfect, then it will join the souls of the pure. If not, it will return in another body until it is perfect."
