Mongolian Buddhism - The Great Mongolian Adventures

Mongolian Buddhism

Buddhism in Mongolia derives much of its recent characteristics from Tibetan Buddhism of the Gelug and Kagyu lineages, but is distinct and presents its own unique characteristics.

Buddhism in Mongolia began with the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368) emperors conversion to Tibetan Buddhism. The Mongols returned to their old shamanist ways after the collapse of their empire and it wasn't until the 16th and 17th centuries that Buddhism reemerged.

Our Buddhism specialized team has been officially partnering with the Department of Foreign Relations of Gandantegchinlen Monastery, the Centre of Mongolian Buddhists since its establishment. When organizing special interest pilgrimage tours, we take advice from high-rank Buddhist monks and cooperate with them. Mongolian Buddhism reached some heights that no other countries couldn’t. We are eager to share these state of mind to anybody who is interested in Buddhism the spiritual practices and higher philosophy.
