Guru Drag-pur (English: Wrathful Teacher of the Peg): fierce form of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava discovered as a Revealed Treasure Teaching (Tibetan: ter ma) by Drugchen Padma Karpo (1527-1592).
At the top center is Amitabha Buddha with Chaturbhuja Avalokiteshvara on the left and Padmasambhava on the right. Slightly below on the left is a seated monastic figure. On the right side is a figure with the typical appearance of Padma Karpo.
At the lower left is the long-life deity Ushnishavijaya, white, with three faces and eight arms. On the opposite side is a bearded monastic figure holding a vase - quite likely to be identified as Shabdrung Ngagwang Namgyal the founder of the state of Bhutan.
At the bottom center is Chaturbhuja Mahakala with Kakamukha Mahakala on the left and Shri Devi riding a donkey on the right.
