Qoqodai Mĕgûn Qubiń
The eldest of the fifty-five tngri. Sacrifices to him are made frequently; the other fifty-four are simply mentioned with him. He has nine sons and nine daughters. The eldest son is Qurĕndé Buqú Qubûn; the second, Qugén Mergĭn; the third, Qorsaġái Mergĭn, the fourth, Boroldái Buqú. The eighteen sons and daughters have eighteen gray steeds. On these gray steeds they race and gallop over the sky, and makes the thunder.

These sacrifices are as follows: the first sacrifice is fifty-five pots of tarasun, one virgin mare, three virgin ewes, and one goat; the second sacrifice, fifty-five pots of tarasun, one virgin mare, five virgin ewes, and one goat; the third, fifty-five pots of tarasun, one virgin mare, seven virgin ewes, and one goat.
Tarasun is an alcoholic beverage prepared by distillation and fermentation of a mare's milk.
