Shamanism - The Great Mongolian Adventures

Mongolian Shamanism

       The original religion of the Mongols is Shamanism. Although Shamanism is not considered a religion, it is a belief, and worship of the land, water, and sky's spirits. It is a connection between normal people and the spiritual world through extra-sensible people. There are lots of differences between other religions and shamanism. Shamanism has no written scripts of any sort. It is only inherited from the ancestors, and those certain ancestor' spirits become the source of learning. Spirits pick their specifically chosen shaman and it is not possible to become a shaman by learning and practicing.
Mongolian Shamanism has started among Mongol tribes from around 7,000 years ago. Mongolian shamanism survived and still continued to inherit today amongst Mongols' major ethnic groups. There are three main modern shaman ethnicities in Mongolia which are Khalkha, Buryat, Uriankhai these are the noble Mongols who practiced shamanism and worshipped Munkh Tenger (Eternal Sky) commonly known as heaven. Mongolian history is filled with Shamans involvements on the government level, of its government's 2300 years of history.
It’s because of the Khaans (Kings) of Mongol empire, Huns empire, and Xiongnu empire they all had the belief of shamanism and even the Khaans had some abilities of a shaman which is consciously connected with the Munkh Tenger (Eternal Sky).
Mongolian shamans (Buu) and shamanesses (Udgan) are made their comeback after 268 years of foreign religious influences. And it is now possible to meet and counsel with them than ever before. Mongolian shamans have the ability to invite their ancestral spirits into their body, and those ancient spirits have some extraordinary powers. Their spiritual world connection made it possible to communicate with the deceased.  Shaman's accessing into people's past is not a big deal for them.
