by Micha F. Lindemans
Literally, 'god'. The supreme god of the Siberian Tungus. He is the creator of the world and rules both over gods and spirits and man and beast. From iron, fire, water, and earth he created the first two humans. Out of the earth he fashioned the flesh and bones, out of the iron the heart, out of the water blood, and out of the fire warmth.

The word 'buga' was also used to indicate the universe.
