Reincarnation of last theocratic ruler of Mongolia to arrive Sunday

9th Bogd Javzandamba, reincarnation of 8th Bogd Khaan which ruled Mongolia until 1921 set to visit Mongolia on Oct 25, 2009.
The Bogd lives in Dharmasala, India and is a Tibetan national. When 8th Bogd Khan passed away in 1924, then People's Government (Communist) declared no more reincarnations of Bogd khan will be necessary in Mongolia.

However, Tibetan Buddhist leaders including 13th Dalai lama claimed 9th Bogd Khaan to lord over Mongolia is born in Lhasa, Tibet in 1932.

The Bogd made a controversial visit to Mongolia in July 1999 under guise of a tourist. He was received warmly by upper class Mongolians, Buddhist clergy and initiated as Bogd Khan of All-Mongolian Buddhists.
Many devout Mongolian Buddhists want the Bogd Khaan to stay in Mongolia and head Mongolian Buddhism. However, in Mongolia, church and state is separate and he can no longer be theocratic ruler of all Mongolians which adhere to many faiths including Christianity and secular and atheistic.
