Today I had the chance to visit the beautiful library at the Gandantegchenling Monastery, in Ulaan Battar, Mongolia. The library houses 108 volumes of the Kanguir, a Tibetan Buddhist canon, written in the 14th century. The library also houses over one million sutras in Mongolian, Tibetan, and Sanskrit. The 13th Tibetan Buddhist lama actually lived at this monastery in 1904. Tibetan and Mongolian forms of Buddhism are closely linked, and both nations recognize the others’ independence from China.
