the position of chinghu is one rank below Goshir, but still higher than a wang. The whole western continent was divided under the power of four chinghu and eight wang. In our terms we can equate the chinghu with an affiliated but independent ruler, while the position of wang is closer to that of a district governor. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche [ RY ]
