Chokro Lüi Gyaltsen (Wyl. cog ro klu'i rgyal mtshan) — together with the pandita Jinamitra, he translated into Tibetan, texts on Vinaya, as well as important commentaries on the Abhidharma-samuccaya. With the pandita Jñanagarbha he translated Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamaka-karika and Bhavaviveka’s Prajñapradipa. He also assisted Vimalamitra and Vairotsana in translating many tantras.

Along with Kawa Paltsek, he was sent to India by king Trisong Detsen to invite Vimalamitra to Tibet. He later received the Vima Nyingtik teachings from Vimalamitra in Samyé.

His later incarnations include Karma Lingpa.
