Ngawang Chöjor Gyatso(1846 - 1910) 

According to Filippo Brambilla, Ngawang Chöjor Gyatso (Ngag dbang chos 'byor rgya mtsho) "was the fourth vajrācārya of gTsang ba [monastery], who had been one of ’Ba’ mda’ dge legs’ closest disciples." (Filippo Brambilla, "A Late Proponent of the Jo nang gZhan stong Doctrine: Ngag dbang tshogs gnyis rgya mtsho (1880–1940)" [Revue d’Etudes Tibétaines 45 (2018)], 5–50).

Furthermore, Brambilla writes, Ngawang Chöjor Gyatso, along with several of the vajra masters of gTsang ba monastery (such as Ngag dbang chos ’phel rgya mtsho, Ngag dbang chos kyi ’phags pa, Kun dga’ mkhas grub dbang phyug, and ’Ba’ mda’ dGe legs himself, had a relationship with leading figures of the nonsectarian movement like Jamgön Kongtrul (1813-1899) and Patrul Rinpoche (1808-1887), most of these Jonang scholars studying with them at dPal spung and rDzogs chen monasteries (Ibid., 11–12).
