Wangdu Nyingpo, Tuchen (c.1763-c.1806): Patriarch of the Khon Family, the 32nd Sakya Tridzin, the second Padmasambhava of this age and a renowned Terton (finder of Revealed Treasure).
"To the buddhas of the three times as the second Oddiyana. Protector with all gathered power over the animate and inanimate. Subduer of wrong doers, possessing the essence of the path entwined as the great bliss of the four joys together with wisdom, compassion and power. I pray, pacify obstacles of daemons and bhutas, and bestow the blessing of attainments - making aspirations spontaneous." (Dragshul Trinley Rinchen, 1871-1935).
The two present day palaces (Tibetan: pho drang) of Sakya and branches of the Khon family, the Drolma and Puntsog, were founded by the two sons of Wangdu Nyingpo, Padma Dudul Wangchug and Kunga Rinchen respectively.
