dc.description.abstractIn Maloderbetovskiy rayon there is a hill or mound called Khar Kurya which is a burial place of a Kalmyk nobleman who died in a war. The nobleman was buried along with military equipment. It is also believed that this mound is where the spiritual master of that place resides who looks after livestock and crops. Buddhist monks perform rituals of offering in order to appease all the local spirits. It is said that during such rituals all local spirits come, including the one from the burial place.
