Description The study Contemporary ritual constructions set up by lama D.-H.Samayev is aimed at ritual constructions which were thought over and set up by lama Danzan - Haybzun Samayev between 1997 and 2002. These contemporary ritual constructions contain a lot of traditional elements but set up in a unique way. They are located in both Tunka and Oka regions and also in capital of Buryatia Ulan-Ude. They serve for hanging up flags hii-morin (bur., tib.: lungta) and zurmadhan (bur.) and play role as suburgans. The study distinguishes two types of ritual constructions: wooden constructions for hii-morin and Arigun suburgans made of steel tubules. The study is also directed at a.) astrology system Zurhay (mong.), which is the base of symbolism for hii-morin b.) theory and history of Ahalar-Arigun movement, which has been found by lama Danzan - Haybzun Samayev in the early 90s. The ideological base for this movement is solutions of ecological and social problems and the comunication between western and eastern thinking.
