According to the mural description by Phuntsho Dendup from Buli, Guru Rinpoche appeared in the form of Geshe (learned man) and gave Terton Pema Lingpa, the teachings of the Dzongpachenpo and prophesied about the Dakini while he was doing his black smithy. The manifested Guru Rinpoche also instructed Terton to teach as per the instruction of the Dakini whatever he may teach and flourish the teaching in the age of degeneration. At this juncture, Tshewang Ki, the women from the Baryoung village has seen the interactive communication between the Geshe and Terton Pema Lingpa. Immediately, upon the information of Geshe, all the women of the neighboring villages prepared to visit Terton Pema Lingpa, to welcome the visit of Geshe, thought to be guest of Terton. When they visited Terton’s place with all offerings items like rice, eggs, fried wheat, puffed rice and alcohol, the Geshe disappeared when they are just near the tent where Terton Pema Lingpa lived.
