> Lo, I see here my father and mother.
> Lo, now I see all my deceased relatives sitting.
> Lo, there is my master, who is sitting in Valinor.
> Paradise is so beautiful, so green.
> With him are his men and boys.
> He calls to me, so bring me to him.

   This may change some of your translations: Valinor
was left in to indicate where the Aelya came from, and
that it is used to mean Paradise. The original (Ibn
fadlan's) has Paradise in both places.
