Yryn-ai-tojon

by Dr Anthony E. Smart
The creator deity of the Yakuts, he noticed a bladder floating on the waters, and in reply to his enquiry the bladder told him that it was the spirit of evil, the inhabitant of the ground hidden beneath the water. Then Yryn-ai-tojon demanded that the bladder bring him a sample of this earth that resided under water. The creator god then blessed this patch of earth, and sat upon it. When the evil one tried to drown Yryn-ai-tojon he was dismayed to find that the further he stretched the land, the stronger it became, until it was a full continent.
