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."
