Olga relays a story about the spiritual masters of nature. She heard from her elders that these local spirits are the souls of the deceased who did not leave the place. They constantly demand offerings from the living. Tsagan Aav, Green Tara, and White Tara are only three of them. Olga also says that in the past there was only one monk who was referred to as ‘lama’ and the rest were referred to as ‘gelyung’. Monks did not wear underwear. During holidays and rituals, monks put on a red cloth, and on top they put a yellow robe.
