Kirsan Ilyumzhinov: Another Bright Soul taken from us

On September 14, the abbot of the Tsagan Aman Buddhist khurul, my friend Lama Baldzhinimya, died untimely. He was a wonderful person. I will never forget our communication, our conversations and his wisdom and compassion.

Baldzhinimya loved life, people and he travelled a lot. He visited Chin and Lhasa. He studied at the Ulan Bator Theological Academy. In 2016, he restored the khurul complex in Tsagan Aman. He helped people a lot. He was a whole and real man.


I offer my deepest and most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lama Baldzhinimya, a sincere follower of the Buddhist dharma, an ascetic of the Kalmyk sangha. The Bright Soul left this world.
