in Bhutan]] **Machik Labdrön** (Wyl. //ma cig lab sgron//), the 'Sole Mother' (1055-1149/53) — the female master who, with Sangye, initiated in Tibet the lineage of the practice of Chö, which means ‘cutting through’ ego-clinging and other attachments.

Machik Labdrön and Sangye stayed for some time in Bhutan near Monastery. Their meditation caves can still be found. A temple has been built at the place of Machik Labdrön's meditation cave. The rocks nearby are said to contain termas hidden there by Machik Labdrön.
