Dudjom Lingpa (Tib. བདུད་འཇོམས་གླིང་པ་, Wyl. bdud 'joms gling pa) aka Chakong Tertön (ལྕགས་སྐོང་གཏེར་སྟོན, lcags skong gter ston) (1835-1904) — a great Nyingma master and tertön whose revelations fill twenty volumes. He was considered to be the emanation of Khye'u Chung Lotsawa, one of the twenty-five disciples of Guru Rinpoche. His immediate incarnation, born even before he himself passed away, was Dudjom Rinpoche.

He was the father of eight important tulkus:

  1. Dodrupchen Jikmé Tenpé Nyima (1865-1926)
  2. Tulku Pema Dorje (1867-1934), an incarnation of Dragyur Marpo Lotsawa.
  3. Khyentse Tulku Dzamling Wangyal (1868/9-1907), an incarnation of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje, father of Dzongter Kunzang Nyima.
