In the 8th century there was a Wind God who created so much of trouble and unhappiness to the people. Guru subdued this wind God, thereby restoring peace and happiness. The Stag Dance portrays the subjugation of the Wind God by Guru Rimpoche. As to mark his victory, Guru Rimpoche rode the stag that happened to be the mount of the god of the wind, when he subdued the wind god and appeased all beings by establishing peace and happiness. It was the first incarnations of the Nam Nying (Namkhe Ngingpo) who revealed the treasure of this dance. It is believed that he found the effigy of the stag and created the stag dance. During this dance, the appreciation of the virtuous people is demonstrated to all the beings destined to be converted in the future. After all the agitators of the world have been overcome, happiness and peace will reign supreme.
