A modern tongdröl on display at the Zangdo Pelri Temple in Thimphu. The image shows a form of Chakna Dorjé specific to the Pema Lingpa (1450-1521) tradition, identifiable as such by the single snake held in his mouth, the woven mats of snakes beneath his feet, and the five garudas encircling the main figure.
