dc.description.abstractEvgeniy says that rituals to prolong one’s life or to worship a fire (gal tyalgn) are useful. He himself performed such rituals near water as well as in the steppe. Usually such rituals are done on a lama’s advice and require preparation, time and effort. Such rituals involve reading prayers to one’s protecting deities and establishing a connection with one’s ancestors. Since people remain alone with their inner thoughts, such rituals resemble a Buddhist meditative practice.
