Description S. Bayandeleg (1891–1967), who lived in mountain range of Mönhhairhan, became an important and frequently mentioned personality in the oral history and oral tradition of Mönhhairhan sum (Hovd aimag) and Bulgan sum (Bayan-Ölgii aimag), although he was almost unnoticed by archival records and published monographs by local historians. The local community refers to him by various descriptions – lama, exorcist (Tibetan gcod pa), sage etc., but his real life remains unclear and already 50 decades since his decease acquiring a mythicised form. This article will compare oral reports on this person from the local oral tradition and oral history of Mönhhairhan and Bulgan sums. This article presents results of a new decade of research on this personality since my first article on S. Bayandeleg published in 2011.
