Sharawa Yönten Drak (Tib. ཤ་ར་བ་ཡོན་ཏན་གྲགས་, Wyl. sha ra ba yon tan grags) (1070—1141) — one of the main disciples of Potowa Rinchen Sal and a teacher of Chekawa Yeshe Dorje.

Ga Rabjampa Kunga Yeshe writes:

The great Sharawa had experienced countless visions in which he saw his personal yidam deities face to face. The light of his wisdom had expanded through the study of an unimaginably vast number of Dharma teachings, and his natural intelligence was unparalleled. It was from him that the precious master Chekawa Yeshe Dorje received the transmission [of the Kadampa lineage].
