When for the third time the majesty departed from Yima, Kereçaçpa seized it, the strongest of men after Zarathrustra.
In this enclosure which Yima made men lived the happiest life.
This land and nation is obviously the garden of Yima and his elect, whom the myth of Iran places on the divine hill.
The reason for the end of the golden age is the guilt of Yima.
