In the teachings of Yong Zhong Ben, Ma Pang yongcuo was described as the palace of the Dragon God. The "dragon" in this religion is a Chinese translation of Tibetan klu, which is different from the concept of "dragon" in Chinese culture.

The "dragon" of the Han nationality is often a specific animal with scales, horns and feet, capable of flying and swimming. The "dragon" in this religion does not take an animal as a prototype, but can be transformed into a personality God of many different animals. It can be either a fish or a snake. The classic "100,000 Dragons" describes it as the head of a snake, a horse, a lion and a bear. In many murals, Tangka, it is often a mermaid image, the head of a snake or a mermaid's tail, very beautiful.

Tibetan worship of the Dragon God has a long history. Legend has it that Zampur was married to the Dragon Girl before the Tortorian anniversary, and the famous King Gesar was the son of the combination of the God and the Dragon Girl. It was the combination of Hsien Rao and the Dragon girl who gave birth to their daughter that the Dragon girl was no longer harmful. The most primitive classic of this religion, The Black White Dragon Sutra, says that there are 500 dragon palaces in the water. The dragon gods who live in the palaces have children under the water like human beings. They live a rich and happy life with pearls, coral, nine-eyed pearls and pine ear stones. If people want to make a fortune, they have to sacrifice the Dragon God.

In Tibet, the early Catholics called it "Majuicuo". Legend has it that a large number of treasures were gathered at the bottom of the lake, so it was named after "Majuicuo" in the name of the Dragon King. It means "forever undefeated Lake" in Tibetan. This is how the lake was formed in Qunidogi's "Introduction to Matan Yong's Mistakes": Before the birth of Matan Yong-cho, there was a Bodhisattva's heartfelt king Woodfall. On his way to the jungle, he saw the plight of the musicians in their old age, illness and death, and asked his teacher: Should these pains belong to a wise gentleman? Answer: should belong to all mortal beings. The king then consulted the law of relieving pain. Answer: only giving. So the king had many houses built and invited all the poor victims to provide them with food and clothing for 12 years. With the cooking of rice boiling water gathered more, 12 years of time has made a lake.
