Guru Rinpoche is known by Tibetans as the 'Second Buddha'. He was responsible for fully establishing Buddhism in Tibet and there are many stories of his great miracles. He is said to have hidden teachings and special objects which have become known as 'Terma'. These hidden treasures were concealed for future disciples to find. They are said to bestow tremendous spiritual blessing which will ultimately lead to the enlightenment of those who connect to them. Amongst these Terma are thought to be many dZi beads. There are lots of stories of Tibetan masters discovering dZi which were hidden by Guru Rinpoche, Yeshe Tsogyal and other great masters.

In the inner biography of the Terton Barway Dorje, who was born in 1836, it mentions that Guru Rinpoche wore a Six Eyed dZi bead.
