This chapter looks at Mönghebatu, the Chorji Lama, and the dilemmas of inheritance. From early childhood he was singled out as an heir in at least two different ways: he was the eldest son of Sechingge, born in the noble family that had become Mergen Monastery's most important patron, and he was the 6th incarnation of the lineage of Chorji Lamas.

Keywords:   Buddhists, monks, lamas, Mergen Monastery, Mongolian Buddhism
