Kouren of the Thousand Lamas

Resource Toolbox

a celebrated lamasery in Tartary, which dates from the invasion of China by the Mantchous. The ground and revenues were given by a Chinese emperor, who had recently come into possession of the throne, in token of his gratitude for a favorable prophecy given by a lama before his conquest. It was designed originally to maintain a thousand lamas, but has made such progress that it now contains more than four thousand. The chief officer of the establishment is also governor of the district, and makes laws, administers justice, and appoints magistrates. (See LAMAISM).
