The Siberian Republic of Buryatia: Where Shamanism and Buddhism Come Together
A great look at the lives of the Siberian people in Buryatia where Shamanism and Buddhists traditions come together. It is beautifully shot with some great landscape scenes, looks inside a buddhist monestary and the shamanic ceremonies of the region.
The republic of Buryatia is located in the heart of Siberia in the shadow of the Sayan mountains. Most of its territory is covered with crystal rivers, virgin forests and the verdant shores and limpid waters of Baikal, the world’s deepest freshwater lake. The beautiful landscapes leave visitors dazzled, but the local population, who know no other scenery, find inspiration in local spirits, prayers and rituals.
