Dahman in Persian mythology, is a pure and holy genius, whose favor cannot be secured by sacrifices, but only by prayers and good deeds. The Persians made thirty prayers to this spirit for their relations, and, in consequence, sixty sins unto death were forgiven the dead. Dahman is the most noble benefactor of the inhabitants of heaven, as also of the human souls going there. His first work is to take the soul and bring it into the presence of God, after which it is entirely safe.
