A poem by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov “Magymguly Pyragy’s Storehouse of Wisdom” and its bright artistic and literary presentation at the solemn conference held at Magtymguly National Music and Drama Theatre of Turkmenistan and other similar events gave another powerful impetus to the truly nationwide celebration of the 300th birth anniversary of the wonderful classical poet, thinker and master of words.

In this regard, it would be appropriate to note that human memory judges any great poet primarily by the extent to which he was able to reflect in his work the cherished thoughts and aspirations of the people, their interests, strivings, dreams and the extent to which he was able to embody the main problems of the time in his works. It is in this context that we need to consider the new work of our Hero-Arkadag, which is a kind of ode dedicated to Magtymguly Pyragy, whose poetry for the Turkmen people is the highest revelation of eternal spiritual and moral values, firmly ingrained in their consciousness as a guideline.
