Nikolaj Ustinovitsch Pavlov - Isle Tojon Aryy Dschobulga. January 17th, 1925.
Together with the spirit of Kunjaas the spirit of the female shamans are honored - Yrya-Dujaak and Kyrbyjdaan. The first of these was the bride of the prince Omuru and the second the daughter of the prince Tschyngyry. These spirits are always honored and praised in liéu with Kunjaas. Horses with winglike patterns on the shoulders are often dedicated and offered to them. Usually a stallion with this patterns is consecrated as "ytyk". If such a stallion is unavailable a mare can be used, too. These "ytyk" are consecrated if diseases of the inner organs have to be cured.
During the consecration of the "ytyk" three years in success the common festivity "ysyach" is being celebrated. It is a festivity with Kumys-entertainment. Before the Ysyach-festivity actually begins the shaman carries the soul of the animal up into the heaven. It takes three seances before the soul of the animal reaches its place of destiny.
At the last raising a young white stallion with a winglike mark on the shoulders has to be brought to death. Its blood is being used for the consecration of the holy pole "Bagach" which the shaman errects.
Each summer the consecrated animal will be raised by the shaman onto the nine "Oloch's". After three times the animal is being brought to 27 Oloch's before it reaches its final place of destiny.
