-FILE PHOTO 08JUL06-A Buddhist monk talks on his mobile phone at the courtyard of the Erdene Zuu monastery, in the grasslands on the edge of the ancient capital of Kharkhorin, some 370 km (230 miles) southwest of [Ulan Bator], in this July 8, 2006 file photo. [Monastic life, which took hold in Mongolia in the 1500s, was nearly wiped out within 15 years of communist rule, mostly during Stalinist purges in the 1930s when an estimated 17,000 lamas were executed. But since the country emerged from decades of Soviet dominance, the Yellow Hat sect of Buddhism -- also practised in Tibet -- is making a comeback. ]
