The Treasury of Lives

Khoting Lhakhang, a temple located in Lhodrak near the border of Bhutan, was founded by Emperor Songsten Gampo in the seventh century. It is one of the border-supressing temples that tames the mythic supine ogress, mother of the Tibetan people. It was from within the massive Vairocana statue in Khoting Lhakhang that Nyangrel Nyima Ozer recovered The Eight Instructions: Assembly of the Ones Gone to Bliss (bka' brgyad bde gshegs 'dus pa) on fierce deity yoga.
