Abstract. The article reveals the representation of the shamanism elements in the Buryat epic about Geser. Geographical spread of shamanism is extensive and multilingual. Shamanism occupied an important place in the spiritual life of the Protoburyats. The Buryat tradition of shamanism is original; it preserved the singularity and wisdom of the initial period of the ethnic groups most fully. Shamanism carries rich aesthetic, ethical and poetic information. In the epic about Geser the authors note a large number of shamanistic elements that are found in some story lines, images, character names, description of rites, and miraculous transformations of the characters. The authors analyze such components of shamanism as numerical symbols, shaman, rites and ceremonies. Also in the epic one can trace Buddhist beddings and weavings.
