Chagdud Dogyal (Tib. ལྕགས་མདུད་རྡོ་རྒྱལ་, Wyl. lcags mdud rdo rgyal) — a sixteenth century master from Nyarong, who 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 an imprint of the lower part of his body on the rock where he landed. Since then he was called Dogyal ('Victorious over the rock').
