Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ja Lama also known as Dambiijantsan, was an adventurer of unknown birth and background who posed as a Buddhist lama, though it is not clear whether he actually was one. He claimed to be a grandson and later the reincarnation of Amursana, the Khoit-Oirat prince who led the Dzungar Khanate to its extermination in 1757. He participated as one of the commanders of Monglian force that liberated Khovd city from Manj Chinese control. Even though Ja Lama claimed on numerous occasions both Russian citizenship and Kalmyk origin, his true identity is not known. It is, however, widely accepted that his real name was Dambiijantsan and that he was born in or around 1862 in a Baga D rbet ulus somewhere in the Astrakhan region.show more
