Tertön Rigdzin Düddul Dorje (Wyl. gter ston rig 'dzin bdud 'dul rdo rje) (1615-1672) was a tertön whose main teacher was Jatsön Nyingpo. He was regarded as a reincarnation of Drokben Khye'u Chung Lotsawa. After the original Kathok Monastery fell into disrepair, Tertön Rigdzin Düddul Dorje built a new monastery in 1656.

Some of his main students were Lhatsün Namkha Jikmé, Longsal Nyingpo and Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin.

Katok Gyalse Sönam Deutsen was recognized as an incarnation of Tertön Rigdzin Düddul Dorje[1].
