Winning the Peace: The Aftermath of the Tibet-Ladakh War of 1679-1683 and the Reorganisation of Western Tibet

par Charles Ramble

(Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes)

The Tibet Ladakh war, which resulted in victory for the Central Tibetan army under
the leadership of the Mongol general Ganden Tshewang and the annexation of
the Ngari region, has been well documented by several authors, notably Luciano
Petech. Less well known are the measures that were taken to bring the newly-won
territory in the administrative orbit of Lhasa’s Ganden Phodrang government.
Based on published Tibetan studies and a hitherto unknown edict of the Fifth
Dalai Lama issued in 1683, this presentation will examine the post-war policies
that were implemented to reassure the local chiefs and the ordinary population
of Western Tibet of the good intentions of their new ruler.
