Tholing was the main religious centre prior to the visit of the great Indian PanditAtisha due to the influence of RinchenZangpo. Atisha was invited by RinchenZangpo under the instruction of the Guge King Yeshe-O. As the history goes by, Yeshe-O was very devoted to RinchenZangpo's activities and he himself founded the monasteries in Tholing. Yeshe-O sent his men to India to invite Atisha several times but they returned after being refused their request several times. Yeseh-O sacrificed all his life in order to invite Atisha. He was captured by invading troops from Qarloq who demanded ransom. When Yeshe-O's nephew Jangchub O tried to save his life, Yeshe- O responded to his nephew by saying " I am an old man. My life now is short. Use the ransom to invite and assist Atisha to come to Tibet .
