We are going to have a trip to the official center of Buddhism in Russia. In Buryatia the buddhist has a spetial form combined with local tradition of shamanism. Simply and clearly we will tell about the life of the monastery, about the history of Buddhism in Buryatia, about Buddhist art. We will explain how the main rituals are performed, who studies in the Buddhist university, how the monks live. If we're lucky, we'll listen to a buddhist service in the temple. We will see the temples of the monastery, stupas and suburgans, lama's houses, prayer drums, statues of Buddha and bodhisattvas.
