In fact the Fravashi is not unlike the Egyptian ka on the one side and the Chinese shen on the other.
Ormazd began the creation by bringing forth the Fereuers (Fravashi).
In my remarks on the ka and the Fravashi I have merely hinted at the vast complexity of these elements of confusion.
All this reminds us of the Fravashi of the Avesta and of the Persian monuments.
Thus the Fravashi has the same remarkable associations with nourishment and placental functions as the ka.
