THE TIBETAN TEMPLE

Puran Gir had a reputation for piety and integrity.  It has been observed that he enjoyed the confidence of both the Tibetans and the British.  He was the envoy of the Tashi Lama, when he interceded for the Bhutanese in 1773 and brought presents of gold and silver, gold dust and musk. 

He accompanied Bogle on his mission next year, and when the Tashi Lama went to the court of the Emperor of China, Puran Gir Gosain went with him.  From Peking he returned to Calcutta with the news that the Lama had died of smallpox while at the Chinese Court in 1781.  He next accompanied the Turner Mission to the new Tashi Lama in 1783; and in 1785 Warren Hastings made him his accredited agent to the latter.
