Búri : The Beginning Of The Golden Age
Odin respected his grandfather's decision. He could understand and sympathize with the weariness of a being who was born so many eons ago that no one knew the true length of time that had passed. Odin, however, feared that the great knowledge of these early times would be lost forever when his grandfather was gone. The All- Father, as always, had a plan to learn and preserve this ancient knowledge, and at the same time pass it down to his sons, and his people. Odin invited his grandfather Búri, his father Borr, and his mother Bestla, to a great feast at his newly finished golden hall. Borr and Bestla were more than happy to accept the invitation, but Búri felt uncomfortable inside the congested claustrophobic world of the realm called Asgard. He had been born and lived his whole life in the wilderness, and he preferred the solitude of open spaces. Asgard did, however, hold two of the most precious things in Búri' s life. They were his two grandsons, Thor and Balder ! Because Odin promised him that his grandsons would spend the whole day with him, Búri reluctantly agreed to come to Asgard for the feast.
