The Mystery of a Buryat Lama Documentary Movie trailer HD Synopsis: The documentary film «THE MYSTERY OF A BURYAT LAMA», directed by Elena Demidova, tells a story of one of the most famous lamas, Pandido Khambo Lama Dashi Dorzho Itigelov.

His body is recognized as one of the sacred Buddhist objects of Russia and is being kept in the Ivolginsky Datsan.

The Buddhist monks approach him as a living person.

Itigelov was born in 1852 and began his religious education at the age of sixteen years.

In 1911, he was appointed the twelfth Pandido Khambo Lama as the Head of Russian Buryat Buddhists.

Between 1913 and 1917, Itigelov was prominent in the spiritual life of Russian Empire.

He took part in the Tercentenary celebrations of the House Romanov and opened first Buddhist temple in St.


During First World War Itigelov presided over the society of "Buryat brothers", an organization helping the Russian army.

After October Revolution, Itigelov resigned as head of the Buddhists.

In 1927, aged seventy-five years, he asked other lamas to begin meditation ceremonies and funeral rites, since he said he was about to die.

Itigelov left a testament asking to be buried as he was at the time of his death, sitting in lotus posture.

On September 11, 2002, Itigelov's body was eventually exhumed in the presence of the leaders of the Buddhist Traditional Sangha of Russia and transferred to Ivolginsky Datsan.
