It is also home to four of Asia’s great rivers.

Maquan river to the east, the south for the kongquehe river, west for the elephant spring river, north for the lion spring river. “Magar yong cuo” — “the invincible jasper lake” means “invincible” in Tibetan.

Lake Manasorovar is said to be the palace of the dragon god in the teachings of yongzhongben religion. “Dragon” in this religion is the Chinese translation of Tibetan klu, which is different from the concept of “dragon” in Chinese culture. The “dragon” of han nationality is usually a specific animal with scales, horns and feet that can walk, fly and swim. The “dragon” of this religion is not based on a certain animal, but can be transformed into a personality god of many different animals. It can be a fish or a snake. The classic book of one hundred thousand dragons describes it as the head of the human snake, the head of the human horse, the head of the human lion and the head of the human bear. In many murals, thangka, it is often the image of a mermaid, head snake tail or head fish tail, very beautiful.
Tibetans have long worshipped the dragon god. It is said that before the zan of toto, zan was married to the dragon woman, and the famous king gesar was also the son born after the combination of the god of heaven and the dragon woman. It is the patriarch xin rao miwoche and dragon woman combined after giving birth to a daughter, dragon woman no longer harm people. This teaches the most primitive classic “black • white • flower one hundred thousand dragon classics” to say that in the water has 500 dragon king temple, lives in the dragon god like the human in the bottom to raise children, guards the pearl, the coral, the nine eyeballs, the pine ear stone and so on, lives the rich happy day. If people wanted to get rich, they had to worship the dragon god.
In Tibet, the early buddhists called it “maatui cuo”. It is said that there are many treasures at the bottom of the lake, so they named it “maatui” after the dragon king. It means “eternal lake” in Tibetan. The introduction of Lake Manasorovar written by qu nidoji describes the formation of Lake Manasorovar as follows: before the birth of Lake Manasorovar, there was once a king with the heart of a bodhisattva named wooden collapse. On the way to the jungle, he saw the suffering of the musicians, who were born, old, sick and dead. Answer: belong to all men. The king asked for a way to relieve the pain. Answer: only alms. So the king had houses built and invited all the poor to feed and clothe them for twelve years. As the water collected from rice cooking increased, a lake was created in 12 years.
