In future times, when there will be warfare, strife, and difficult circumstances in the world, will there be a safe haven where people can go to practice?"Guru Rinpoche told the king that there would be five Lungs where warfare would never enter. Kyimo Lung is one of these five.
Guru Rinpoche himself, came to bless this valley. Near Sera Gompa (Nubri Monastery) is the mountain of Tashi Palsang where heart treasures are hidden. These discovered treasures (Ter) were then reconcealed in the mountain and there continued presence is a protection against war, Terdak Lingpa [Minling Terchen, 1646-1714] discovered Ter here as did Terton Garwang Dorje, who took six scriptures as Ter practices from the mountain before replacing them. The Mirror of the Enlightened Mind of Vajrasattva and The Heart Tantra of Padma[sambhava] on Dzogchen were both discovered in Kyimo Lung.
According to one of the greatest Tertons, Rigdzin Goddem, many Termas still remain in the mountains of Nubri. Karma Tulku has listed a few:
The original 18 Dzogchen Tantras in 5 cycles written in Lapis given by Vajrapani to King Ja.
The remains of King Trisongdeutsan’s youngest son in a copper vessel.
Manjusri’s diamond sword
Avalokitesvara’s crystal rosary
King Trisongdeutsan’s crown which was originally given by Indra to Shakyamuni, then hidden as a terma, re-discovered by Guru Rinpoche and given to King Trisongdeutsan.
King Trisongdeutsan’s robe.
Guru Rinpoche’s set of 21 phurbas.
