The Nyingma teacher Ngari Panchen (1487-1542) allegedly discovered a cache of 'Revealed Treasure' (Ngarpan Terdzo) teachings that depict Padmasambhava in many unique and varied forms. These forms primarily function as Guruyoga practices and as meditational deities. Also see the Ngar Pan Yontan Terdzo initiation card set.

The central figure of a Ngar Pan Yontan Terdzo painting can have any number of subjects such as the standard form of Padmasambhava, Medicine Buddha Padma, Vaishravana Padma, a wrathful Padma and Chaturbhuja Avalokita.
