Kunzang Tekchok Yeshe Dorjé (Tib. ཀུན་བཟང་ཐེག་མཆོག་ཡེ་ཤེས་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wyl. kun bzang theg mchog ye shes rdo rje) (b.1957) — a Bhutanese vajra master from Chorten Monastery in Sikkim, who wrote many commentaries, some at the request of his teacher the Fourth Dodrupchen Tubten Trinlé Pal Zangpo. He is one of the main students of Dodrupchen Rinpoche. His other teachers include Chatral Sangye Dorje and Penor Rinpoche. Because of his vast knowledge he is often referred to as a khenpo, but actually he is a ngakpa lay householder and has a wife and child.

He has written commentaries on texts such as Mipham Rinpoche's Khenjuk and Ornament of the Middle Way, the Abhisamayalankara, the Treasury of Abhidharma and the Introduction to the Middle Way, but also wrote a very large commentary on doing Rigdzin Düpa retreat. His collected works amount to seventeen volumes and have been printed in 2012.
