Notes :
According to J. Shar, a 92 year old woman living currently in the centre of Erdenedalai Sum, there was only one just-started temple here, and some felt yurts around it. She said she visited the temple when they held the ceremony Tseejüü (Tib. tshes bcu). She was unable to give any more data. Tseejüü ceremony is in connection with Padmasambhava (Lovon tseejüü) and the dakinis (Khand tseejüü) and indicates Red Stream Tantric assembly. According to Ts. Volodya and N. Ölziikhutag, who are authors of the Book (p.241), Ögöömör Buyan Erdenedalai (published in Ulaanbaatar 2003), Tengelegiin khural consisted of a yurt, where ceremonies were held and a small building (they say Dugan, i.e. Temple) where food was prepared. It was a Zod / Lüijin khural, where Tantric masters held ceremonies, the objective of which was to curb ego-clinging and offering of body offering. The last abbot (Khamba) was Sh. Lodonsharav and about 20 monks (and women monks) belonged to the assembly such as Ya. Dambii, Sh. Damdinjav, N. Jamiyan, R. Gombojav, M. Lkhameren (woman), M. Chointsom (woman), L. Davaa (woman), Nürdev, Lodoi, M. Mijid, Ts. Chimeg, Ch. Nanzaddorj, and Gombojav.
