géush úrvá, the soul of animals;

géush úrvá is a very important gathic phrase meaning “the soul of animals;” occurring many times in the poetic gathas. I believe the following true story clearly elucidates the meaning of the term and how animals have a soul.



An incredibly dedicated  dog refused to leave his master’s side, even when the man passed away six  years ago. Since his owner’s death, Captain has refused to leave the man’s  grave.

Captain, a German shepherd, ran away from home shortly after his owner,  Miguel Guzman, died in 2003, reports The Daily Mail. When the family went to pay  their respects a week later, they fount the heartbroken dog sitting by his  owner’s grave, wailing in mourning.

Since then, the loyal dog has rarely left Guzman’s resting place in Villa  Carlos Paz, central Argentina. Miguel Guzman bought Captain as a present for  Damian, his 13-year-old son, in 2005. Miguel passed away suddenly just one year  later, and, by the time the family returned from the funeral, the dog was  missing.

Guzman’s widow, Veronica, stated that:

“We searched for him but he had vanished. We thought he must have got run  over and died. The following Sunday we went to the cemetery and Damian  recognized his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing, as if he were  crying.”

Yahoo! News notes that the family never showed  Captain how to find the cemetery, so it remains a mystery how the dog discovered  his dead owner’s grave. Hector Baccega, the cemetery’s director, stated that he  and his staff have started to feed and take care of Captain. Baccega recalled  that:

“He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around  the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master. During the  day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the  grave. And every day, at six o’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave,  stays there all night.”

Damian Guzman added that his family hasn’t simply abandoned Captain, even  trying to bring the dog back home several times. But Captain always returns to  the cemetery before dark on his own. Damian added that, “I think he’s going to  be there until he dies, too. He’s looking after my dad.”
