Wangdu Nyingpo, Tuchen (c.1763-c.1806 [p807]): Patriarch of the Khon Family, the 32nd Sakya Tridzin, the second Padmasambhava of this Age and a renowned Terton (finder of Revealed Treasure). At the four corners are depictions of his four sons.
He was considered to be a rebirth of Ngor Khenchen Palden Chokyong and others. Most of his profound teachings were received from his father Kunga Lodro, the previous Sakya Tridzin. Wangdu Nyingpo constructed a new Vajrabhairava temple in Sakya with a bigger than life size central image along with the twelve wrathful retinue figures slightly larger than the size of a man. Along with that he constructed a new protector chapel with very large sculpture. Renowned as a 'treasure Revealer' (terton) his books are still available and read today.
