On the 9th of March, the 2nd day of the 2nd lunar month, the anniversary of the parinirvana of Rigzin Terdag Lingpa, another miraculous sign was witnessed by the sangha of Mindrolling.

At 5:15pm while the Kudung Chöpa was being performed in the main shrineroom of Ngedön Gatsal Ling at Mindrolling, there appeared in the sky a circular rainbow around the setting sun. There were beautiful cloud formations and the rays of the sun radiated with exceptional clarity covering a vast expanse of the sky. The sky remained thus for more than an hour.
