Authors : A.B. Sagandykova, Zh.M.A. Assylbekova, B.S. Sailan, G.S. Bedelova and U.Zh. Tuleshova

Abstract: Mythology of Turkic people as one of the form of the rich outlook culture is of Tengri and reflect specific, world relationship of Turkic. The model of the ancient world civilizations and cultures recreated by “imprint” and “trails” of objects of material culture and on the base of the language analysis (texts of monuments). The notion of the first man, about the first death mostly connected with the idea of the end of the mythical time. With the death of the first man in a number of mythological systems is explained the creation of the universe. Anyway the death perceives as “the border situation”, broken or threatens to break the natural course of things. It follows that the funeral rites are necessary to society first of all to “extend” a posthumous (minimum social) existence of an individual and thus save society from the “uncertainties” arising in it.
