WRITTEN ON THE CEILING


Fire swords conquer enemies
Fine brushes win hearts.
My blade has let history be,
Instead I have seized my brush.

"The Holy One" novel came out


The maverick Buddhist monk and tantric poet Danzanravjaa (1803-1856) stands as one of Mongolia’s most famous literary and cultural figures. G.Mend-Ooyo (b1952) is regarded as one of the most prominent Mongolian writers of the last three decades. In this highly original and poetic novel, Mend-Ooyo tells Danzanravjaa’s story, about his “crazy” behavior which shocked the establishment and delighted his students, about his deep and abiding friendship with his muse Dadishura, and about his passionate advocacy for education and his mystical relationship with the natural world. Interweaving this story of a nineteenth century monk with the experiences of Tüdev, the man charged with preserving Danzanravjaa’s legacy during the upheaval of the Stalinist purges during the 1930s, Mend-Ooyo’s remarkable book asks questions of passion and spirituality, of faith and dedication, and of time and space, conjuring an unforgettable world of purity against a backdrop of religious corruption and political violence.

POETRY and THE WISDOM OF NATURE
by G.Mend-Ooyo


...The voice of poets, who are the messengers of language and culture, needs to be communicated, for it expresses the heart and mind which beat through the veins of the natural world, pulsating at a single frequency, and it expresses the intuition which is the wisdom of the earth....

ЯРУУ НАЙРАГ, БАЙГАЛИЙН ОЮУН САНАА

Дэлхийн яруу найрагчдын 37-р их хурлын үндсэн илтгэл
Г.Мэнд-Ооёо:  ЯРУУ НАЙРАГ, БАЙГАЛИЙН ОЮУН САНАА
 
  ....Таван мянган жилийн өмнөх энэ шүлгийн амин санаа хуучраагүй байна. “Хүн бол сэтгэдэг өвс ногоо юм” гэж Францын сэтгэгч, гүн ухаантан, физикч, зохиолч Блез Паскаль (1623-1662) хэлсэн нь бий. “Салхиар ганхах цагаан өвсөнд ч амь нас минь буй” хэмээн 20-р зууны Монголын сод яруу найрагч О.Дашбалбар бичсэн юм. Ийнхүү байгаль хүн хоёрын оюун санаа нэгдмэл зүйл болохыг бүхий л цаг үед дуулсаар байна. Хүүхэд ахуйдаа сонссон нэгэн үлэг домгоо энд эргэн дурсах хэрэгтэй боллоо.
“Хүмүүн анх үүсээд биеэсээ гэрэл цацрааж, өөр өөрийн модтой түүнийхээ жимсээр хооллон юугаар ч дутахгүй амьдарч байжээ. Нэгэн хүмүүнд гаж санаа төрж, өөр бусдын модны жимс илүү амттай санагдсанд гэрлээ унтраагаад түүнээс хулгайлжээ. Гэтэл дахин гэрэлтсэнгүй. Муу үйл хийх бүрийд хүмүүсийн гэрэл нь унтарсаар байжээ. Ингээд хүн гэрэлгүй болсон юмсанжээ.”...

...The voice of poets, who are the messengers of language and culture, needs to be communicated, for it expresses the heart and mind which beat through the veins of the natural world, pulsating at a single frequency, and it expresses the intuition which is the wisdom of the earth.
The early understanding of Mongolians was that human beings were created from Heaven and Earth, with Heaven as their father and Earth as their mother. In this way, the air and the wind, the clouds and the rain, the hills and mountains, the waters and the springs, the rocks and the stones, and the grasses and the vegetation - all has wisdom through being part of a living system. Pleasure and suffering and happiness and anger and frustration - the mind expresses it all.
