The article refers to the fact that the written monument of the ancient Turkic tribes “Oltun Yorug” (Golden Light), based on Buddhism, served to improve the spiritual environment in Central Asia. In addition, the article analyzes the influence of the religious movements of Buddhists and monists on the social and spiritual life of Turan during the period when this work was translated from Chinese into ancient Turkic language. The author of the article also notes the harmony of the images of the ancient Indian Vedas with images in the Avesto and the Golden Light. Particular attention is paid to the relationship of the Golden Light with Avesto, a common monument to the peoples of Central Asia. The reasons for the common sense and functional features of the images of Zervon and Hormuzd in the Golden Light and Avesto as well as their ideas about goodness are revealed. At the same time, the article defines the views on the appearance of the Avesto images in the Turkic monuments of the Manichaean movements and on the genetic connections between them. Since the Golden Light is a translation work the reasons for the appearance of the ancient Turkic mythological heroes in this work are explained.
