One of the most revered goddesses of the Buryats is Yanzhima. Myths tell us that at first there was chaos and darkness on the earth. Seeing this, Brahma Saraswati's spouse (this is the Indian name of the goddess Yangima) descended into the world to overcome her chaos with her knowledge. Yanzhima is now considered the patroness of the arts, sciences, crafts, students, children, motherhood. Prayers before her portrayal help women achieve the cherished goal of becoming a mother.

In Barguzinsky district near the village of Yarikta there is a rock. Here in 2005 a miracle happened - in the dancing image on the stone the face of the goddess appeared, its height was about one meter.
As old residents of the local valley tell, at the beginning of the 20th century Sodo-lama meditated at this place at the rock. He was the rector of the first Barguzin datsan. This man was amazing. He had the gift of foresight. In the 30s in these places the property of the Barguzin Datsan was buried. With his search, the history of the discovery of the image began.

In 2005, lamas of the Buddhist Sangha were searched in this area for buried relics that disappeared during the years of repression. The head of the Panditokhamba Lama was Damba Ayusheyev. It was planned to pick a place for the construction of a new datsan. The event that took place four years earlier brought the seekers here - in the cleft of the cliff, the woodcutters found here a pyramid with images of thousands of Buddhas, this undoubtedly indicated the great importance of the area, which is called "Uulsatara" (Meeting). Two rocks here seem to meet each other. If you believe the legends, it is here that there is a world of people with the higher world.
Before the beginning of prospecting works and inspection of the area, Dyuba Ayusheev fell into a state of deep meditation to "see" the buried relics. In this state, he stayed rather long. Suddenly, 20 meters from himself, he saw the face on the rock, it was Janzhima, the goddess appeared in a dancing image.
Surprisingly, but before this incident on the rock an image like this, no one has ever noticed.
