National Anthem of Buryatia
Written by national poet of BruyatiaDamba Z. Zhalsaraev
The Land of steppes, of lakes and Taiga forests
You’re full of hearty sunshine all above
So, flourishing in every single corner
Be happy, oh, my dear land I love
Red-berries smell, Bird-cherry lightly breathing
The tea of Rosemary flowers taste.
I’m drinking your sweet air when I breathe
The incense of my Holy Motherland
Accept, my Land, the thankful words from your son
A sip of Holy water grant to me
So I could get the strength of Baikal power
To pass my long and hard path
My Land and me are used to be together
Your destiny and mine are always same
My best regards to you, beloved place
My heart belongs to You in any day
Oh, Mother Land!
