Buddhism in Mongolia

Mongolian Buddhism is frequently depicted as a piece of Tibetan Buddhism, which is from various perspectives. Be that as it may, there are sufficient unmistakable components to allude to the practice as Mongolian Buddhism. Here I will quickly present a few parts of Buddhism in Mongolia



It is in the season of the Great Khans that the Tibetan type of Buddhism additions impact in Mongolia. In the start of the thirteenth century Chinggis Khan overcomes Tibet. The pioneer of the greatest domain at any point was known for his religious resilience, having Nestorian Christians, Moslems, Manicheïsts and shamans inside his domain. At the point when after his passing inconvenience emerges in Tibet his grandson is send to settle things. In spite of the fact that doing this with a trail of obliteration he makes companions with Sakya (Sa skya) Pandita, the patriarch of the Sa skya group. With these two the exceptional Tibetan lama-supporter relationship begins. Godan's successor Khubilai Kahn proceeded with this connection with Sakya Pandita's nephew Phags-dad. He was kept at the Mongolian court, however more for political than otherworldly reasons. By holding a delegate from the decision Sa skya dad, Khubilai would have liked to understand a cordial demeanor of the Tibetans. While being at the Mongolian court Phags-dad changed over awesome parts of the decision class including Khubilai. So surprisingly Mongolia went under real Buddhist impact, despite the fact that it appears to for the most part have been constrained to the privileged. 

Toward the finish of sixteenth century Altan Khan is in power. He meets with Sonam Gyatso, a Tibetan Buddhist pioneer whom he gives the title of Dalai Lama. This meeting implies a restoration of Buddhism in Mongolia. Later awesome grandson of Altan Khan will pointed as an incarnation of the Dalai Lama, fortifying the ties amongst Mongolia and Tibetan Buddhism. From that period on Buddhism turns into the prevalent religion in the Mongolian regions and sets up a major church. Toward the finish of the nineteenth century there were 583 religious communities and sanctuary buildings and 243 incarnate lama's eventual living in the Mongolian domains, of which 157 dwelled in Inner Mongolia. The Buddhist pastorate controlled around 20 percent of the nation's riches and in the 1920s there were around 110.000 ministers, making up 33% of the male populace . Moses particularly accentuation the negative effect of this church: 

"… [T]he shades of malice of the ascetic framework; the insatiable and degenerate lamas; the obliviousness, neediness and illness propagated by an inert, untutored church; and … the devastating monetary weight of an ineffective and avaricious administrative pecking order." (Moses 1977: 3-4)


One of the qualities of Mongolian Buddhism are the numerous autonomous lama's. These lama's don't have a place with any sort of religious community. There wage is mostly inferred of endowments or installments from individuals counseling them. These counsels may concern religious, profound or therapeutic issues. Additionally lama's can be solicited to guarantee the prosperity from a specific venture/for exceptional events, similar to I watched at some point when somebody needed to manufacture a booth he had a lama come to favor the ground. 

These autonomous lama's by and large have not taken (every one of) the ministers promises. The autonomous lama's strength have bonds with a religious community, or even work for them concerning example a curator.



Mongolian conventional solution is especially in light of the Tibetan Buddhist practice. There are a few contrasts be that as it may. As indicated by Lama Baatar, working at the Medical school in the Dornogobi aimag, Mongolian drug would be greatly improved in taking care of physical issues due to the climate, illnesses identified with sustenance and taking blood from the body. Besides in the Mongolian custom there is a needle therapy like treatment with needles. 

At a few cloisters, as Dashchoilon Khiid, Gesar Sum and Mamba Datsun it is conceivable to get restorative counsels. Likewise there are autonomous lama's who offer these counsels.



In the Tibetan timetable years are named after one of the creatures of the Tibetan zodiac (horse, sheep, monkey, fledgling, canine, pig, rodent/mouse, dairy animals/bull, tiger, rabbit, mythical beast, wind). Together with this cycle of twelve years is a cycle of ten years in which two resulting years are demonstrated with one of five components (press, water, wood, fire, earth). These cycles joined give a sixty (12x5) year time of one of a kind blends of a creature with an element[*]. Consistently is isolated into lunar months which in chief comprise of thirty days however may be shorter in light of the fact that unfortunate days are not numbered and some heavenly days are tallied twice. Than consistently has four unique days of love: the eighth, 10th, fifteenth and 25th And consistently has it's exceptional heavenly days. The birthday of Buddha was praised in 2002 on May 26. 

In Mongolia the lunar new year is called Tsagaan sar, which means the white month, which is commended amid a couple days toward the finish of the 81 days winter period. Wanderers separate the year in times of nine days and the winter in this way is nine of these periods. The periods have names like: `Lambs must be secured' and `Not sufficiently frosty to solidify the soup'. The principle shamanistic custom called the Great give up is hung on the third day of Tsagaan sar.
