A spiritual tour – the World Energy Center
Embark on a spiritual journey and visit the World Energy Centre in Dornogobi or the Eastern Gobi province. The name explains the landscape of the province all – it’s a combination of steppe and desert, where you can admire the Gobi sunrise and the sunset at its’ best. The World Energy Centre is at the legendary Khamar Monastery was founded by the famous Mongolian Buddhist envoy Danzanravjaa Khutagt in 1820s as one of his “Ideal 3 monasteries of the Gobi Shambala”. The area’s believed to retain supernatural energy and people come from around the world to access the powerful energy, which is reputed to result in good health, fertility and prosperity.
Danzanravjaa Khutagt played a vital role in Mongolian Buddhism, he was a believer of the Red Hat sect of Buddhism and was renowned for being an innovative thinker (philosopher, architect, medicine man), poet, playwright and a scupltor. Born as the only child of a mendicant, Danzanravjaa showed signs of genius at very early ages and was proclaimed to be the 5th reincarnation of “Goviin Dogshin noyon khutagt” (can be translated as His Holiness Ferocious Noble of the Gobi). Even it’s told that when he was only 7 Danzanravjaa told “Khurmast tenger” (Divine sky), one of his most famous poems. Danzanravjaa wrote many poems and songs, and several plays, and further founded the first drama theatre in the World Enery Gentre, where he directed some of his plays.
Before the Stalinist purge in the 1930s, Khamar Monastery was a complex Buddhist centre in the Eastern Mongolia with 4 religious schools, 80 temples housing 500 monks. During the blood-stained purge, one of the head monks of Khamar Monastery buried plentiful of the invaluable religious items in the rocks, and secretly asked his children to guard. After Mongolian democratic revolution in 1990 that sat religion free, his offsprings handed over those priceless objects to the people of Dornogobi. Most of the items (many of which belonged to Danzanravjaa himself) are now proudly exhibited in the Danzanravjaa Museum that you will visit during the tour.
