Tukjé Chenpo Semnyi Ngalso — an earth terma revealed by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo in Central Tibet which contains a sadhana of Avalokiteshvara.

The transmission of this terma was given in Lerab Ling, on 28 July 2014.

According to the secret biography of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé and a teaching of Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche from Lerab Ling, 26 July 2014, the empowerment of Semnyi Ngalso was among a set of three empowerments, the first empowerments that Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo gave in his life at the age of 40 in Dagam Wangpuk to a group of eight students including the fourteenth Gyalwang Karmapa,Thekchok Dorje, the six-year old tenth Tai Situpa, Palpung Situ Pema Kunzang Chogyal, and Jamgon Kongtrul. The three empowerments were the three main components of his own profound revelations: Tsokyé Nyingtik, a lama practice, Tukjé Chenpo Semnyi Ngalso, a practice of Avalokiteshvara, and Chetsün Nyingtik, a dzogchen empowerment.
