Before Nechung Rinpoche actually headed for Do-Kham, he requested the advice of the Dharma protector, who said, 'Initially there will be some pertinent problems. However, if you were to open the Ne-Ze (grain cascade) of Khentse Rinpoche and open the sealed scroll contained in it, you will find a Guru Yoga text, a treasure object discovered by the great treasure master Ogyen Lerab Lingpa, otherwise known as Terton Sogyal, and [if you] subsequently commission the sangha of Nechung to recite this text when they assemble, you will fulfill your mission.'

Accordingly, Khentse Rinpoche also handed over the Guru Yoga text, along with the image of Guru Padmasambhava, with great pleasure. Thus, on the 22nd day of the ninth Tibetan month of the Iron-Hare Year, the day of the Buddha Shakyamuni's Descent from Heaven, the image was brought to Lhasa and housed in the Tsuglag Khang amidst a grand ceremonial welcome accorded by the Tibetan government.

On the tenth day of every Tibetan month, a group of eight Nechung monks are required to make a Tsog offering based on Thug-Drub Drag-Po Tzal (Bestowal of Heart's Wrathful Accomplishment.)
