The Visits of Guru Padmasambhava (Guru Rimpoche) In AD 746 Sendha Gyab (Sindhu Raja) the king of Bumthang being possessed by a demon invited the Indian tantric master Guru Rimpoche(Precious Master) to exorcise the demon. Guru Rimpoche captured the demon converting it to Buddhism along with the king and his rivals restoring peace.
Guru Rimpoche returned to Bhutan via Singye Dzong in Lhuentse also visiting Bumthang and Mongar. At Gom Kora (Eastern Bhutan) he left a body print and an impression of his head with hat in stone. He then flew to Taktshang, Paro as Dorji Drakpo riding a pregnant tigress giving the monastery its name “Tiger’s Nest”.Guru Rimpoche made a third visit during the reign of Tibetan King Murti Tsenpo, son of the Terson Detsen.
