Nabelsinin vestei gylsinan laynay!
Nabelsinin idaneni gorsin sein musti da tysayt so na carayt fere. Orie tay idaneni jat jarat, nabelsin docaresayt. Nabelsin cunii! Tine tagrayenin natyseni zul; tine arli.


Recite the book of the first chaos!
The bones of the ocean of chaos are fighting things, so that they stop and do not move. When a mage dips into this sea, the chaos starts to move. Beautiful chaos! Thou art full of little bits of knowledge; thou art the world.
