Mongolia Buddhas destroyed by the old communist regime in front of monastery Amarbayasgalan

“All gold and silver that once covered sacred temples and stupas was torn down, melted and taken away. In 1941 the State Bank received 30.9 tons of gold and about 60 tons  of silver. Religious chalices, icom lamps and statues alone accounted  for more than 60,000 pieces and the number of saddles, harnesses, traditional knives, smoke pipes lavishly decorated with silver, gold and precious stones simply is not available.

Not much remains now of the flourishing Buddhist culture in Mongolia.  Only two dozens temples remain as sad remainders of the former  glory.”

Buddhist monasteries in Mongolia were renowned for their their wealth  and splendor, containing treasures of material and intellectual  culture collected during the centuries of Buddhist religion  development.

Full of life with crowds of pilgrims, believers and monks, they  served as major centers of culture and education as well as the  community life.Datsans or teological institutes and various schools  offered education in all areas of Buddhist knowledge: pholosophy,  medicine, astronomy, arts and mathematics.


35,000 Mongolians were Massacred. With a population of only 740,000, Mongolia lost 5% of it’s population. That’s equivalent to 50,000,000 dead & 17,500,000 dead for India and the US respectively. Today’s Mal-Educated Acceptance of the provably false “Over Population” theory Condones Genocide. Thus the world is quickly leading to both the Acceptance, Participation and Decimation of Humanity. All former Genocides, were mere Practice Runs. India’s People, Ancient Traditions and particularly , the Gold & Gems of Srirangam, other Ancient Temples are the Primary Target!

Monasteries served as the main centers of cultural and social life  attracting thousands of belivers.

“Their way of education is very open and relaxed. Everyday excercises  in dialectics in front of class mates or important people, the  atmosphere of freedom – all these make one very vivacious, eliminates  shyness and teaches to be audacious, often on the brink of being  daring…” described the monastery life at the turn of century B.  Baradiin, a Russian researcher of Buddhism.

But 1937 arrived and nothing of this splendor and grandeur remained. 

35,000 Mongolians were outright Butchered in a Physical Genocide. The elimination of these Traditional Mongolian Cultural Icons and Activists thus enabled the Communists to carry out a Brutal Campaign of Cultural Genocide. Millions of religious canons, books, records were burned and monasteries destroyed.

The report of the Religious Affairs Department from August,  1939: “Out of 767 registered monasteries 724 have been demolished.”  This included more than 2,000 temples, 312 datsans or religious  schools along with classes and libraries.

The final report notes that half of 5,500 buildings used for  religious purposes were destroyed by 1939.

A rough estimation of the conficated property of monasteries can be  concluded from the request for “1,006 trucks (three tons each) needed  to transport” to the capital city. And this included only the most  valuable items like golden and silver statues, precious stones.

Much of this property was send to the Soviet Union. Some available  archive records indicate that 70 tons of copper and bronze statues  were taken to Russia. Another document, a transportation permission,  mentions 1,566 trucks full of Buddhist icons and statues taken in  1939 alone.

All gold and silver that once covered sacred temples and stupas was  torn down, melted and taken away.

In 1941 the State Bank received 30.9 tons of gold and about 60 tons  of silver. Religious chalices, icom lamps and statues alone accounted  for more than 60,000 pieces and the number of saddles, harnesses,  traditional knives, smoke pipes lavishly decorated with silver, gold  and precious stones simply is not available.

Not much remains now of the flourishing Buddhist culture in Mongolia.  Only two dozens temples remain as sad remainders of the former  glory.

Under the communist regime nothing should have reminded future  generations of the “builders of communism” about the past culture of  the nation.
