This ritual is carried out near water sources early in the morning during Ur Sar. Its purpose is to bring rain, success and luck. Offerings to deities include the milk of a white goat, a bouquet of flowers, candles, incense, candies, Kalmyk tea and other items. After prayers have been read, the food offerings are put by a man (not a woman) on a piece of wood and floated on the water. According to Larisa, during this particular ritual the weather often changes, rains alternating with rainbows.
