dc.description.abstractTelo Tulku: Nowadays we adopted the Russian Orthodox way of doing funerals. In many Buddhist countries, they do not bury the dead but cremate. That is a standard procedure or practice. But in Kalmykia we have adopted this tradition to bury from the Russians. We are slowly introducing cremation, but it will take a while to introduce this concept and for people to understand why we do so. So far, we have done several cremations. But we do not necessarily encourage or implement this tradition among the public. We do tell people that this is possible and that it is a Buddhist way of doing funerals, but psychologically people are not ready to adopt this.
