Video: Gene Smith on the Mindrolling Lineage

The art of the Mindrolling tradition is identifiable specifically because of the distinct appearance of the founder Terdag Lingpa Gyurme Dorje. Paintings are further identified by specific deity forms such as Lha Chenpo and Chaturmukha Mahakala in their unique Mindrolling iconographic forms.
