At last, NATURE
The most intriguing thing about Mongolia is its natural environment. Nature has shaped the religion and philosophy of Mongolians. It has inspired the simplified and satisfied way of living. It is also nature, which at times is harsh and formidable, which has inspired the close – knit and respectful relationships of people. Through thousands of years, nomads have passed on their wisdom of worshipping, adapting, and living in harmony with nature instead of being frightened by it or destroying it. This knowledge has been passed down through music, songs, costumes, customs, tales, and myths that have been told over many nights. The nomadic lifestyle may seem a slightly inconsistent with the modern world. However its harmony with nature is truly unique and powerful to bring out the true nature of a person.
