Faravahar is the symbol of Zoroastrianism... the symbol that i have right now in my signature.

 

It's the equivilant to the crescent for muslims, the cross for christians, and the star of david for jews.

Good poll!

 

Born a muslim. No longer consider myself a muslim or atleast the definition it holds.

Just believe in god, good health, my parents and friends.

 

I think the definition of islam has become more diluted since the revolution and many Iranians that I know of have turned their back on religion and what it stands for.

 

you sound like my baba! :haha:

 

Cheers! I take it as a complement. lol :)

Actually Faravahar is the gaurdian angel, and also the symbol of Zorastorianism and is the equavolant (srry for bad spelling) of the Judaic, Christan, Muslim Gabrial. The 3 parts of the wing means Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Behavior. The 3 parts of the tail of Faravahar mean Bad thoughts, Bad words, and Bad behavior and is not to be followed, that is why they are at the bottom. The ring that Faravahar is holding is the symbol of Wisdom and something else, I forgot, srry.

Fravaharis a guardian soul. Literally translated it means "Forward pulling force". Each of its parts signifies an idea or a philosophy.

 

It is winged, signifying the ascent of the soul or upward progress. The wing is in three major segments, representing Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds.

 

The ring in the center symbolizes the eternity of universe or the eternal nature of the soul. As a circle, it has no beginning and no end.

 

The figure inside is that of an old man, representing wisdom of age. One of the hands points upwards, telling us that there is only one direction we should choose. The other hand holds a smaller ring, the ring of promise. This means when a Zoroastrian gives a promise, it is like a ring. It cannot be broken.

 

The feathered tail below is also in three parts. It represents the opposite of the wings, namely, Bad Thoughts, Bad Words, and Bad Deeds. It is at the bottom, because such choices weigh us down and impede our ascent.

 

And finally the two curly threads from the waist signify the duality of our experiences. Through our Good Mind we can make the Good choices, and through its lack or opposite, we will make Bad choices.

Dear Princess of Persia!

 

Your preaching skills have been practiced by some Ex-members previously, we honestly don't force anybody to visit Bia2 forums!

 

They just happen to browse and post along!

 

As I mentioned earlier, just try to enjoy your stay!
