Abstract: (Show)

This brief article traces a Ming mission to Tibet and Nepal in 1413 by looking at several primary sources. During the mission, the envoy, Hou Hsien, had audience with Tsongkhapa (tsong kha pa), in response to which the latter sent his disciple Shakya Yeshé (shAkya ye shes) to the Ming court. Hou Hsien also met with the 5th Karmapa, Deshin shegpa (de bzhin gshegs pa). (Ben Deitle 2006-01-25)
