JUN 11, 19 .. BUDDHISM IN RUSSIA .. MY EXPERIENCE

I dedicate this Post to all of my friends who embrace the traditions, beliefs, spiritual practices and philosophy of Buddhism.

I especially single out Greg and Tsering Deyoung. Greg and I date-back to our first meeting in New Delhi, India, December 27th, 1990. 

During my first trip into Russia, back on August 2-4, 2017, I was most fortunate to visit an amazing Buddhist Datsan / Temple, located in Ivolginsk, South of the City of Ulan-Ude, in the Republic of Buryatia, Russian Federation. 

The below link will take you to a Post that I published here on blogspot showing my visit to the Ivolginsk Temple / Datsan :

I hope you look at this Post because it is the most significant Buddhist Datsan / Temple in all of the Russian Federation.

In this Post, I am going to show you photos of the Buddhist Datsan that I visited during our recent trip to Chita.

The below photos are in the order that I snapped as I circled the Datsan.



In the above and below photos, the small white structure is a Buddhist Stupa.





The above and below photos are of a large incense burner used during special Buddhist ceremonies.



Another Stupa here at the Datsun.



Below is a Mongolia Ger / Russian Yurt.



Below are several photos of a Ger / Yurt that Patti and I enjoyed a meal in recently.









Back we return to our Datsun in Chita. Another Stupa in the below right.




The ever present Buddhist Prayer Wheels.




The entrance into the Datsan. 


Into the Datsan we enter.






There you have it. A short, and we hope a sweet, visit into the world of Buddhism.

Cap and Patti
