8 Beyond those historical connections that linked Bhutan to Tibet, the aggressive warfare of the company's army along Tibet's southern flanks was an obvious cause of concern. It was these factors that led the Panchen Lama to intervene as a peacemaker between Bhutan and the company. In his letter to Hastings, the Panchen Lama took pains to mollify this new player on the Indian scene with abundant flattery about the company's achievements, but he also took the opportunity to educate this European intruder about the Buddhist values he represented: Having been informed by travellers from your quarter of your exalted fame and reputation, my heart, like the blossom of spring, abounds with gaiety, gladness and joy; praise that the star of your fortune is in ascension; praise that happiness and ease are the surrounding attendants of myself and family.

There is additional evidence on the Bogle mission from another British source. After the Panchen Lama died during his stay at the imperial court in Peking, Hastings sent another emissary, Samuel Turner, to Shigatse to acknowledge the new incarnation and continue the diplomatic relationship opened up by Bogle. Turner published an account of this 1783 mission and in it made extensive references to the fond memories of Bogle's 1774 visit among Tibetans. Turner generously attributed the warmth of his own reception at Tashilhunpo to the impact of Bogle: "That the effect produced [by Bogle] on the mind of the Lama, by a disposition of manners perfectly congenial with his own, was so great and powerful, cannot excite our surprise.

The Jesuits had been followed by the Capuchins, who set up their mission in Lhasa in the 1720s. The Panchen Lama's knowledge of Christianity came from what he knew of these Roman Catholic orders and their teachings. He was also seeing it from the outside, from the perspective of his own religion—just as Bogle struggled to understand the religion of the Lamas from his Christian perspective. For Bogle, the difference between a Capuchin monk and a Scottish Presbyterian was an important piece of cultural knowledge, but for the Panchen Lama the difference mattered little, for they were all Christians.
