SRAOSHA

Zoroastrian Judgmental Spirit

Also known as Sraosa, Sros, Srosh

Zoroastrian spiritual entity who takes prayer requests

He personifies Answer to Prayer and Obedience to Ahura Mazda.

Your prayers are relayed through him, and you may even receive a reply. If so, you are obliged to heed all advice and follow the instructions provided.

Sraosha is also one of the beings who judges the souls of the dead, along with Mithra and Rashnu.

He is sometimes associated with the Amesha Spenta but we think he is more an honorary member.
