Elista was founded in 1865 as a small settlement; the name is from Kalmyk els(e)n ‘sand(y).
Since 1991, the town has been characterized by the slow decay of Soviet-built institutions, and the large construction projects instigated by the republic’s millionaire president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.
The town center has a number of renovated public parks focused on the main square, boasting statues to both Vladimir Lenin and the Buddha. To the east of the town lies the Olympic village of the 1998 XXXIII Chess Olympiad, known locally as “City-Chess“. The site has a public swimming pool and an excellent museum of Kalmyk Buddhist art, and is also infrequently used as a conference center.

People of different generations turn to their traditional faith, rite and deities.

From 13 to 16 April the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi will read comments to ‘Lotus Sutra’ in the Elista, capital of the Republic of Kalmykia.
The Lotus Sutra presents itself as a discourse delivered by the Buddha toward the end of His life. The tradition in Mahayana states that the sutra was written down at the time of the Buddha and stored for five hundred years in a realm of snake gods (nagas). After this they were reintroduced into the human realm at the time of the Fourth Buddhist Council in Kashmir. The sutra’s teachings purport to be of a higher order than those contained in the agamas of the Sutra Piṭaka, and that humanity had been unable to understand the sutra at the time of the Buddha, and thus the teaching had to be held back.
