Zoroastrian - Symbols and concepts - Belts
Type of Spiritual Experience
The symbol was well known to our Pre-Rapahelite Brotherhood and indicated in paintings by using the ‘girdle slung low’ to indicate that the heroines of the spiritual path were obedient.
BUT, it can also relate to a different kind of obedience. The girdle slung low can also be related to the need for abstinence and thus obedience when one is practising sexual stimulation techniques.

A description of the experience
Yasna 59. MUTUAL BLESSINGS.
28. We worship Verethraghna, the Ahura-made, the victorious blow; and we worship the Saoshyant, who smites with victory; and we sacrifice to this Baresman with its Zaothra and its girdle (which is its band) and which is spread with sanctity. And we sacrifice to (our) own soul(s), and to (our) own Fravashi(s).
