It is said that one day when the third Lachen Gomchen Rinpoche was meditating at Deuthang hermitage, he told his pupil lama Samdup that he would find something floating down the river flowing nearby the next day and he should bring it to the hermitage. Early next morning he went down to the river and started looking around. About midday he saw a stone shaped like a vase floating down the river. He grabbed it and took it to his master. The master said that it is a Ter (religious artifact) and directed him to keep it in the monastery, now called the Tshebum or the vase of longevity.
