The spread of Tibetan Buddhism to the Mongolian regions in the late sixteenth century did not onlyresult in often violent confrontations between Ti-betan Buddhist monks and Mongolian religious specialists, the male and female shamans,but alsoled to areification process of local religious practices and concepts resulting in the creation of asingle tradition on the discourse level. In my paper Iwill show how the ‘teaching of the shamans’ has come to be formedasboth aconcept and apractice in early-modern Inner Asia. By analyz-ing its discursive formation and entangled historical configurations, from late sixteenth century Mongolia to late nineteenth century Buryatia, the paper aims to shedlight on the question how religious traditions are discursively cre-ated and socially affirmed.
