Maebar Tsho – The Burning Lake

Maebar Tsho – The Burning Lake

  • According to legend Terton Pema Lingpa had a vision of the sacred treasures that Guru Rimpoche had hidden within the lake centuries earlier. However, the people of Tang and the local ruler were cynical of his claims. In order to prove his claims, Pema Lingpa held a butter lamp in his hand as he jumped into the lake. After remaining under water for a long time he re-emerged holding a chest and a scroll of paper with the butter lamp held in his hand still burning bright.
  • Thereafter, the lake came to be known as Mebartsho (the burning Lake).
