Prajñākaramati(950 - 1030)

Renowned Madhyamaka master belonging to Candrakīrti's lineage, he wrote several commentaries of Candragomin and Haribhadra's works, but those texts seem no more available.

Depending on the sources, he was either the gatekeeper of the Western Gate of Nalanda when Naropa was living there (chos 'byung mkhas pa'i dga' ston, vol. 2, p. 323 / 1175), or the gatekeeper of the Western Gate of Vikramashila when Naropa was in charge of the Northern Gate (deb ther sngon po; vol. 1, p. 295). (Source Accessed Jan 22, 2020) His Bodhicaryāvatārapañjikā is considered to be the most important Indian commentary on the Bodhicaryāvatāra by Śāntideva.
