The article is focusing on the concept of yos and on its importance in understanding morality in the traditional culture of the Mongols. While the term has been translated into European languages as a habit or custom, it retains a much broader connotation in the Mongolian language, where it implies a vision of a world order against which proper and improper categories of moral behaviour are evaluated. Such evaluations, more than concepts of good and evil, explain the motives influencing behaviour of the Mongols
