(thod smyon bsam 'grub), second son of Machik Labdrön (ma gcig lab sgron); together with his older brother Gyalwa Döndrub (rgyal ba don grub) he became a lineage holder of his mothers teaching of Chod (gcod). He is not to be confused with his older brother's grandson of the same name. It is interesting to note that this second Thönyön Samdrub became the father of a daughter named Lenthogma (lan thog ma), who was supposedly an emanation of ma gcig las sgron. This woman was also instrumental in the preservation and spreading of the teaching and lineage of Chod (gcod).
