in Northern mythology, is the name given to that part of the land of the blessed where, with all earthly wants all sorrows are at an end, whose inhabitants neither sickness nor death befalls. This place is in possession of king Gudmund, who was ruler of Jotunheim. From this last fact it would seem to follow that Udainsakr was not a paradise of the Ases, but of the former inhabitants of Scandinavia, the Jotes.
