Chagdud Dogyal (Wyl. lcags mdud rdo rgyal), a sixteenth century master from Nyarong, is said to be the nephew of Chagdud Sherab Gyaltsen and to have established several monasteries including Akar Gon in 1627[1]. When he was young he was thrown from a roof, but he was completely unscathed. Instead, he displayed miracles such as the imprint of the the lower part of his body in the rock where he landing. Since then he was called Dogyal ('Victorious over the rock').
