Delquen Sagán Burkan

"World White God." In Buryat belief, the highest existence in the universe. Three spirits reside in him: Baronyé Tabin Tabung Tngri, Zúm Dishín Dirlún Tngri, and Sagadé Uġuġun.

Delquen Sagán Burkan is invoked for cattle, for grass, and for health. No pictures are ever made of the Highest Being, or of the first and second spirit. Pictures are made of the third spirit, Sagadé Uġuġun, of his wife, Sanqaliń Qatĕń, and of their eldest son and daughter.
