Karma Chagmé (Tib.: Karma chags-med, also known as Raga Asya, Rā-ga a-sya) was a monk of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He is important also to the Nyingma tradition, in that he was a principle teacher of Terton Migyur Dorje—revealer of the Nam chö (Tib. gnam-chos) terma cycle and thus a co-founder of the Palyul lineage of Nyingma—as well as authoring a treatise on the "Union of Mahamudra a...more
