"In 1992, the famous treasure revealer, Tare Lhamo, and her consort, Namtrul Rinpoche, came to Tsogyal Latso. Tare Lhamo, an emanation of Yeshe Tsogyal, had a vision in which the eyes of the Yeshe Tsogyal statue moved and the facial expression changed. She stayed for seven days and commissioned artists from Samye to paint new murals. She also built simple lodgings for nuns, cleaned the lake, and installed a mesh canopy to keep out debris.The temple is known as Kashima, meaning Four Pillars, which describes the size of the temple. Its formal name is Jangchub Ling, which means Sanctuary of Enlightenment. The date of the original temple’s construction is unknown."
