In the mythology of the Far East "Y-Shirvan" means "Bridge to the here-after" : the connection from "life" to "life after dead in the here-after".

This Bridge will be wide and easy to walk on if you have lived your live in purity and dignity and so it will be easy to reach the here-after. But if you have lived your live with less dignity and purity, then the Bridge will become less wide so that it will be difficult to reach the here-after. It might become so small that you fall off and you will never reach your goal!!!!
