Barsom in Persian cultus, is a bundle of consecrated twigs which the priest holds in his left hand while reading the Zendavesta. They are held together by a sacred band of palm-leaves, which is called Evanguin. The tree from which the branches are taken is not mentioned; the number is decided according to the number of books which the priest reads.
