Off-campus course explores religions of Mongolia

In the spring of 2008, a group of Cornellians journeyed to Mongolia for a block-long immersion into the religion and culture of the area.
They also experienced the traditional nomadic life of rural Mongolia, including living in yurts and tending animals.In Mongolia, the group encountered a society in which religious practices are being reborn after being forbidden for over sixty years by the communist government. They met with shamans and Buddhist lamas, visited temples and shrines, and attended religious festivals and rituals.
