Kong-jo and she bursts into tears. Drawing her attention to the rays of light, the king comforts her and promises to build her temple. She is overjoyed. There follows a most difficult passage describing first the erection of a palace for the king by the side of the lake and then the temple itself. Nepalese stone-masons are employed to copy the luminous outline of a magical stupa which has appeared in the lake (see Note 24 above). Timber and 'imperishable mud from the realm of the klu' come up from the bed of the lake.

But, unless it is entirely apocryphal, the biography of Pha-jo 'Brug-sgom Zhig-po (1184 - 1251) provides strong evidence that the Ma-lJi bka'-'bum already existed in that saint's youth; it is specifically mentioned among the teachings received by him in Tibet before he came to Bhutan where later he bestowed its 'authorisation'. 19 This must be the earliest independent reference to the Ma-lJi bka'-'bum and considerably antedates those noticed by Stein 20 in the bIography of Tsong-kha-pa andin the well-known history, the rGyaZ-rabs gsal-ba'i me-long.

Kong-jo is then admitted to the king's presence and a great public festival ensues. Meanwhile the Nepalese queen Khri-btsun who is in the palace of Sog-po-mkhar notices all this. Seeing all the commotion and noting that Kong-jo has brought this precious image with her she thinks: 'Kong-jo too will build a temple and since she is expert in Chinese geomancy 26 she will build other temples too.
