paradyse F

old persian

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “paràdeisos (Παράδεισος)”, from the Sanskrit “Pairāḍā'īja”, meaning “paradise, supreme place”, which in turn derives from the Old Iranian (Avestan) “*parādaiĵah“, meaning “walled enclosure, enclosure park” (Aramaic “pardaysa” similarly reflects "royal park". Paradise is a common religious, cosmological, mythological, or metaphysical term for the physical or transcendent place from which heavenly beings (such as a God, angels, sky deities like Queen of Heaven, Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother, Son of Heaven, heavenly saints or venerated ancestors) originate, are enthroned or inhabit. It is commonly believed that heavenly beings can descend to earth or be incarnated and that earthly beings can ascend to Heaven in the afterlife or, in exceptional cases, enter Heaven alive.
