In 1995, she wrote a book about specific flora of Khuvsgul province where she is from. ...” when I was child, I was reading a lot and I enjoyed walking around, alone in the mountains. I read almost all Jules Vernes books. Reading all those books pushed me to become an ecologist to discover world.
Then in 1981, after my secondary studies I entered on first year of Biology in the Mongolian National University. From the third year of the university, I specialized on botanic lessons because by studying plants we also learn to treat peoples.  Research in botanic attracted me a lot, because it’s no need to kill a living being to acquire results, on contrary, it helps to cure peoples and animals..... Plants are every where, in the city, in countryside…in the plain and steppe species diversity increases, their colors and their aspects are more and more interesting...I love my job and I like to see plants, to admire Mongolian landscapes. When I see all the plants that I do not know, my interest grew even more, Botany is a science where it is impossible to get bored...
Today there are virtually no meal without vegetables, medecines without participation of a plant, there is no raw materials and products without using plants, role of botanists is increasing more and more… “
Oyumaa cooperate with Wind of Mongolia for more than 3 years.
Guide • Buddhism in Mongolia
My name is Mygmarsuren GOMBODORJ.
Since my young age, I have a deep interest in ancient history, culture and spirituality.  I therefore decided to become a monk, that was the best way for me to study deepely those topics and by getting me closer to Buddhism, try to become a “better person” . At 20 years old, after my graduation in high school, I became a monk. By this way, I followed the modern education cursus as well as the traditional way to learn Buddhism with my spiritual Masters.
I finally got the title of Master in ancient Mongolian Buddhist literature. I am considering today to continue my studies and my research, still in the field of ancient Mongolian Buddhism and by this way contribute to a better understanding on Buddhism. It is also for those purposes, to promote Buddhism, its origins and history in Mongolia that I accepted, in agreement with my spiritual masters, to cooperate with Wind of Mongolia.
This cooperation is also a way for me to meet other peoples, share and discover other cultures. Travels and my interest in the other countries, bring me to study in India, in Dharamsala and Varanasi, as well as in London.
