Patsab Lotsāwa Nyima Drakpa was a major translator of Madhyamaka texts into Tibet. A monk of Sangpu Monastery, he traveled in in Kashmir to work with paṇḍitas such as Jñānagarbha and Kanakavarma. Among his translations are Nāgārjuna's Mūlamadhyamakakārikā (D 3824), Āryadeva's Catuhśataka-śāstra (Four Hundred Verses) (D 3846), and Candrakīrti's Madhyamakāvatāra (D 3861).
