Zhang Tsepong Chökyi Lama(11th cent. - 12th cent.)

According to Anne Burchardi, "Zhang Tshe spong ba cho kyi bla ma was, together with Blo gros 'byung gnas, a direct disciple of Rngog [blo ldan shes rab]. After the death of Rngog, Zhang took over the abbot's chair at Gsang phu and held it for 32 years. He upheld all of Rngog's transmissions and composed several commentaries. So far very little is known of him and his RGV commentary is considered lost." (Anne Burchardi, "A Provisional List of Tibetan Commentaries on the Ratnagotravibhāga," [The Tibet Journal 31, no. 4: 2006], 8).
