Once, on his way back from a trip to India, he received the heart essence of countless sages, including the wisdom dakinis. He was almost all the way back to Tibet when he decided to give the lord Maitripa what little gold and provisions he still had left. Presenting himself to Maitripa, Khyungpo begged him, "Lama, my land-Tibet- is not a rich land. Please teach a practice for the quick accumulation of wealth."

Maitripa recounted the story of the wisdom protector, adding, "He is called the Great Compassionate Black One. He is also called the Protector of the Wish-Fulfilling Tree. As much as you rely on him, that much will your wishes and desires be answered.

...Once in a cave in Penyul, Khyungpo Naljor found himself alone and down to his last provisions. He recalled Lama Maitripa saying that the protectors would provide for his livelihood. He was in real need and felt like his life was about to end. So one night, he went to the door of his cave, shouting at the top of his voice, "Kshetrapala and you all! I was told by Maitripa that you'd help! Well, right now, I'm at the end of my rope and I can't finish my torma offerings!" The following day, a big group of townspeople came to him with offerings of butter, tea, and clothes. Since many disciples had thus gathered, Khyungpo gave them a teaching. Within a month, the ranks of students swelled to the extent that they couldn't fit in his cave anymore. It was a decided that a monastery should be erected, and the monastery was named Cheka.


 and this story about Sangtsa Sonam Gyaltsen and his Ganapati practice:

    Chogyal Phagpa’s father, Sangtsa Sonam Gyaltsen, was a great practitioner who concentrated on Ganapati practice. At one point Ganapati appeared before him and lifted him up into space to the height of a mountaintop, saying: “Look below.” But Sodnam Gyaltsen was afraid. After some time, he looked and beheld the three provinces of Tibet below. Ganapati said, “Whatever you saw, you will reign over. You saw the three Tibetan provinces, so your descendants will rule over those territories. But because you didn’t look down the moment I told you to, you will not rule them yourself.” Then he placed Sodnam Gyaltsen on the earth again.

    For a long time Sodnam Gyaltsen had no son, and being sorely disappointed he performed special praises to Ganapati. At length Ganapati appeared at the dwelling of Saton Ripa and said, “Sangtsa Sonam Gyaltsen is constantly invoking me, saying that he needs to command the three provinces of Tibet . But no matter what practice he does, he does not have the karmic connection to rule them himself. Therefore a Bodhisattva who has accumulated much merit and would be able to dominate the vast world must take birth as his son. You, Saton Ripa, possess these qualities, so please take rebirth as Sonam Gyaltsen’s son with the aspiration to help all Tibetan people, particularly those in the three provinces.” Saton Ripa agreed, and was later reincarnated as the child who became Chogyal Phagpa.
