Mountain God was very gracious, but very shy. Once the spring has happened this story - Mountain God descended into the valley, where just planted rice. The villagers welcomed him with honors, carried gifts, and God decided to walk around the village. He came in to the creek and sat on the beach and suddenly the first time in his life saw his reflection! And frightened, and wailed - What I'm ugly, I did not know! How do I feel ashamed as embarrassing! - Cried closed sleeves and fled. Frightened peasants suddenly the mountain god will never return? And so it happened. Came to the village of trouble - the seedlings become stunted, wilted pea harvest was lost. Peasants went to a wise old woman to ask for advice. The old lady thinks and says - Really Is this so bad a god of the mountain? - Really - sigh peasants - but this does not matter for us he is the best!

- We need you to find someone - something even more ugly than the god of the mountain - the old woman said, - go to the lake and catch fish there - okodze, because no one in the world is not so ugly eye goggles!

The peasants did. They came to the dwelling of God Mountain and put the fish under his door, opened the door to God, I saw the fish - and let's laugh okodze - And really ugly! Well, my eyes! A jaw!
