Mongolian Stamps



Introduction

Mongol Post, the Mongolian national mailing services has an impressive collection of different stamps in a wide variety of themes. Often they depict traditional Mongolian themes like noblemen or Buddhist deities, but also the animals that inhabit the steppe, mountains and desert of Mongolia and important events like the visit of president Bush. More international themes include Space, joint issues with countries like India and even Princess Diana

 

 

 

 

10 Khangal Stamps


Number of stamps: 10
Size of one stamp: 3.5x4.5 cm (1.4x1.8 inch)

Short Introduction

They are ten deities with names such as Namsrai, Gombo, Jigjid, Ochirvaani, Choijil, Lkham, Jamsran, Shalij. The deities are considered very important in Mongolian Buddhist traditions because of their responsibility to protect humans from any damage and disaster and many people name their children after them. 

The 10 Khangals all have a specific task and they took an oath to Budha separately. For instance, Namsrai defends or guards the buddist religion, Gombo takes precautions agaist damages and disaster etc.,

The sheet of ten stamps is not just a beautiful addition to a collection, but according to Mongolian belief the stamps can help you everyday to prevent disaster and misfortune.
