Persians Gods and Goddesses
A culture that goes back 7,000 BC, culture of love, music, freedom and happiness

The birth of Raam or Venus from Simorgh (Phoenix)
The naked lady is the Goddess of love, music, happiness and freedom
This is a portrayal of Simorgh (Goddess) and Raam (Goddess); taken from a 1500 years-old plate. The bird is Simorgh or Sanam and the naked lady is Raam, Zohreh, Aphrodite or Venus. This plate is kept in Saint Petersburg Museum, Russia. This is from the dynasty of Sasanians (Persian Empire), just before Islam. This culture also reached as far as Europe. The word Sun in English and San in Turkish is from Sanam
Simorgh (Phoenix) represents our capacity for vision, with its great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration. Simorgh is our soul, humanity, purity, love and imagination that flies and give us passionate freedom. The phrase “Simorgh arises from the ashes” means; although humanity, purity and love may die and turn into ashes but, one day, they will rise again from these ashes.
As well as Persians, there are Chinese, Japanese, Russians, Egyptian and Native American counterparts of the phoenix. (Feng-Huang, Ho-oo, Firebird, Benu and Yel respectively)

The wings of the Simorgh is the symbol of wind and wave and the wind is the excistence and love

The woman in the picture being born from Simorgh. She feels very secure as she is being protected by Simorgh while being naked. She is happy and she is dancing and, at the same time, offering grape to Simorgh. The grape is the symbol of wine. The picture is showing that the happiness, flow, dance, life and love are actually Raam (The naked women) and these are being born from Simorgh. All these, happiness, flow; love and dance are being protected by Simorgh as you can see in the picture. The plant (flower) around the picture is Nilofar, Lili.

The name Iran comes from IRYANA. This means the place for Raam and the place for Music (Tarab). The symbol of being for Iranians use to be pointed to women as they were the symbol of birth. It is for this reason that Sun for Iranians is called the Lady Sun (Khorshid Khanom) because; the Sun is the cause of all the being on Earth.

Iran had always had the name of Iran. However, from outside Iran she was called Persia, as Mesr for example is called Egypt

Many Cities in Iran are named after Simorgh. For example; Isfahan used to be called Jay. Jay was another name for Simorgh. The other example is Khomam. This nam is from Khom+Mam. Khom is flute. Khomam is the mother of flute or the mother of Music. Mother of Music is actually Simorgh.

Being is flow (Dance). This is the reason that there is same word describes “being” and “flow (dance)” (Vajd, Vajdan, Vojood)

In Iranian culture the one who had no music used to be called deprived person “Binava” which meant a person without music, a person who had no Nava.

The whirling dance of Turkey in Eurovision Song, Year 2004, was from the poem of Rumi (Molavi). Rumi made himself as a symbol of humanity in order to show the power of human and he was trying to show that the soul of human is God and the power of creation is in humanity. This comes from Iranian True culture, Raam (Simorgh). This was why he used to go round himself like whirling dance rather than going round Kaebe (As Moslem pilgrims go round the Kaebe for praying). In his poem, in fact, Kaebe goes round Rumi.
کعبه طواف میکند ، برسرکوی یک بُتی
( بت ، اشاره به خود مولوی است )
این چه بت است ای خدا ، این چه بلا و آفتی
اوست بهشت و حور خود ، شادی و عیش و سورخود
درغلبات نور خود ، آه عظیم آیتی
