I went recently to the Gandantegchinlen Tibetan Buddhist Monastery. I'm told it's the largest in Mongolia; it's definitely quite impressive. The Monastery is staffed by monks, properly referred to with the Tibetan title Lama, as you can see in the name Dalai Lama. These monks are available to give children auspicious names, tell people auspicious days to do things, and read prayers in Tibetan. Mongolian believers will either have prayers read for prosperity in their current life or to get Karma for a better reincarnation.
Or you could look at the exquisite carving and painting, I suppose.
This is Myagmarsuren. He is just 22 years old and has been a Lama for 5 years.
He explained that the Gandantegchinlen monostary has a history spanning more than 150 years, though it was used to house soldiers in the era of World War II while Mongolia fought for independence. The temple is full of exquisitely made Buddhas and other icons, which Myagmarsuren said people brought in droves after Communist rule ended. They brought all religious items they had hidden for years and filled the monastery with them. Even before that, he told me the story of a man named Talkh (which means 'bread,' if you're curious) who helped found the monastery. Talkh was a rich herder who had his hand in the slaughter of countless animals. One day an epiphany led him to realize how much sin he had accumulated in slaughtering his animals, and so he helped found Gandantegchinlen monastery to generate good Karma.
Myagmarsuren offered to give me pointers in reading Tibetan Sutras, which requires not only navigation of labyrinthine tibetan orthography, but also knowledge of liturgical tradition and proper chants. My interest in this is primarily linguistic, but it has been fascinating to learn more about Tibetan Buddhist beliefs from a man who dedicated his life to them.
