О роли института панчен-лам во внутренней политике империи Цин

The article examines the role of the Panchen Lama institution in the inner policy of the  Qing Empire (1644-1912). Manchu rulers expressed equal respect to the authority of both Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama throughout the period of their reign. The reason for that was considerable religious and even political influence of the Lamas on the vast territories, where Tibetan Buddhism was spread. Stable affirmative relationship with Buddhist hierarchs allowed the Qing court to rely on them when conducting it's policies in this significant geocultural area.
