Damet garm means to have "warm breath" or
be alive. Mehdi Akhavan Sales (OMID) used this expression in poetry,
specifically in "Zemestan," when he said "damet
garm o saret khosh bad." It is good for your dam (breath)
to be garm (warm) because it means that you are alive. It is used
as an expression of gratitude.
