Once upon a time, two friends were horsemen. Then one of them passed out of time. One day later, while the other friend was riding his horse, his dead friend came and sat next to the horse and called him. When he went there, he said, “Don’t be afraid of me. Come here.”
When he went there, he said, “I became Erleg Nomun Khan’s horseman. And you need help. In three days Erleg nomun king will come to see you. Prepare a lot of alcohol and meat. Show chess. Keep adding alcohol to the middle of the glass. If you can make Erleg Nomun Khan happy, he will give you a long life.”
After three days of preparation, the chess began to move by itself. He moved back and found out that King Erleg Nomun had come. The glass was half full. Erleg Nomun Khan himself could not be seen, he knew that he was there only by the way his chess moves. Then, when the alcohol was quite moderate, the chess stopped moving.
So I learned that Erleg Nomun Khan had gone back. The next day, while riding his horse, his friend also met him. “Well, you managed to make King Erleg nomun drunk. You have been given a long life. But don’t tell people your age. “I may not be able to see you again.”
And that person lived a prosperous life for 120 years. One day, while walking, he came across a snake that had never been seen before. When the other man saw him, he said, “I have never seen such a snake when I was 120 years old.” Erleg Nomun Khan’s messenger heard that it was not and took his soul.
Actually, it has been removed from the account of the search. What it means to be removed from Erleg’s account is that in Erleg nomun khan’s place, every person born in this world has a pre-written record with the time of birth and death.
The messengers of Erlej come to take the soul of a man who is about to die while looking at that note. Legend has it that if a note about a person is written in an account that records the names of those who have already taken their soul or the names of the dead, they will live longer.
The account of the above person disappeared and he was caught because he told his age when he didn’t care about it. Therefore, Mongolians don’t care about their age, but even if they do, they have a custom of suppressing, adding, or summarizing.
