The Slav myth of the creation of the world narrates that it all began with the God of the Kind. Before the white light was born, the world was enveloped in pitch darkness. In the darkness there was only the Rod – the Ancestor of all that exists. The genus was in the beginning enclosed in an egg, but Rod gave birth to Love – Lada, and by the power of Love destroyed the prison. So the creation of the world began. The world was filled with Love. At the beginning of the creation of the world He gave birth to the kingdom of heaven, and under him He created the heavens. The rainbow cut the umbilical cord, and separated the ocean from the heavenly waters with stone firmament. He erected three vaults in the heavens. Divided Light and Darkness. Then the god Rod gave birth to the Earth, and the Earth plunged into the dark abyss, into the Ocean. Out of His face, then the Sun appeared, the Moon from His breast, the stars of heaven from His eyes. Dawns clear appeared from the brow of the Rod, dark nights – from His thoughts, violent winds – from His breath, rain, snow and hail – from His tears. Rod’s voice became thunder with lightning. Born heaven for love and all the heaven. Rod – Father of the Gods, He – born of himself and born again, He – that was and what is to be, that was born and what will be born.
Rod gave birth to the heavenly Svarog and breathed into him his mighty spirit, and gave him the ability to look in all directions
