text: (214) In the afternoon I found out some more details from Dzing-ben about the Ou-nie-bu in Wakching but I only want to write these down when I have seen the ceremony. Towards evening came Lam-ang, the old gaonbura of Kongan, and he told me interesting things about the founding of Kongan (notebook 3 p. 144 following) which I want to give in context.
