Description
The Buryats are an indigenous people living near Lake Baikal in Siberia, little known to the Western world. After 70 years of suppression by the Soviet government, Glasnost enabled the Buryats to pursue their traditional spiritual practices, a blend of Buddhism and shamanism. This book serves as an overview of this unique culture, providing firsthand accounts of a shanar—the dedication ritual of a shaman—as well as interviews with some of the participants, 100 color photographs, a glossary, and numerous examples of Buryat poetry.
