  In the years of Soviet Power, since the twenties of the last century Buddhists in Buryatia have been subjected to severe repression. Were destroyed almost all of the Datsans and destroyed most of the Buddhist Lamas (the priests). Buryat settlements were divided into different administrative region and the inhabitants of these settlements were moved to other cities.
Despite this repression some of the Lamas continued to make prayers to their homes and to take the parishioners.
Very little of buddhist priests have survived up to the present time, what would share their knowledge and traditions of performance of rituals. Now in Buryatia, in the Ivolginsky Datsan operates a Buddhist University, which trains clergymen in the specialties - tibetan medicine, astrology, philosophy and art. Study In the University students from all over Russia of different nationalities.
