This is the second part interview with Telo Rinpoche on Tibet-Mongol relations. Rinpoche says that after the collapse of Soviet Union in 1992, he joined the Dalai Lama on his first visit to Kalmykia, a region once rich in Buddhist heritage destroyed in the 1930s by the communist. Under the Dalai Lama's guidance, Rinpoche took the responsibility of leading a Buddhist revival within the approximately 160,000 Kalmyks who live in Kalmykia.​
