Since the political climate changed in 1990, an increasing number of Mongolian students are endeavoring to read and study Dharma texts in their native language. Many of the old Buddhist texts that survived the purges were either in Tibetan or in the original Mongolian script. This script is difficult for many modern day Mongolians to understand as it was replaced by a new alphabet during the time of the Communist occupation.

There is an urgent need to print Dharma books, especially in modern Mongolian language that our youth can relate to and understand. People are becoming more interested in their traditional religion but are having difficulty in finding literature  that clearly explains the Dharma.
