Sample text

According to a clan distribution scheme {bShad Indzod 1900, among the six great clans of Western Tibet are listed the 'Bre clan! lineages but also the Khyung[ -po], whereto we can mention the ICe and rGya clan (cf. g. also Jackson 1984: 110-114) who were the all-dominant occupants of the Myang-stod district. The population and native clan rule of the large Myang area display a complex ethnic pattern. The area of conversion of the 'Bre clan and the dharmacakra-activity of nil century 'Bre chen-po was the district of Bye-mda' of Upper Myang.

4 The support of these family lineages had far-reaching consequences for the creation of a unified country. It was surely due to their unswerving and loyal support that Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal (1594-1651), the legitimate but hapless prince-abbot of Ralung, was able to build his state after arriving in Bhutan in 1616. 2 3 4 Aris 1979: 165-81; Dargye and S0rensen 2001; Dargye 2001: 56-113. During the late 15th century when the ruling principal seat of the 'Brug-pa school shifted to succession by reincarnation, the tradition of marital ties between the 'Brug-pa hierarchs in Rva-Iung and Bhutanese families especially those boasting descent from Pha-jo 'Brug-sgom zhig-po ceased.

Judging from the number of followers and the importance of their activities,2 between the 12th century and the early years of the 17th century the Drukpa School gradually emerged as a powerful and influential presence, especially in the western part of Bhutan. The Drukpa School's success in establishing itself so firmly can be ascribed principally to the loyal patronage and support offered to it by the descendants of Phajo Drukgom Zhigpo. Ties between the descendants of Phajo in pre-17th ceutury Bhutan and the Drukpa mother-seat of Ralung in the eastern Tsang province of Tibet were maintained through religious and matrimonial links with the Drukpa rulers of Ralung.
