Some important Tantric rituals, where residents and guests of the republic will be able to take part, will be held in Tuva.
The sand mandalas of Medicine Buddha will be built by monks of the Gyudmed Tibetan Tantric Monastery, who had been rendering assistance to Tuva in the revival of Buddhist traditions. The Gyudmed monks will hold the ceremony of the big praying drum, which they had built for donations last year.
The religious events will finish with the ritual of the White Tara, Buddhist goddess of longevity, on September 16. The Buddhists will pray to the goddess for longevity of all those attending the ceremony and saving them from all sicknesses.
