===Brief Biography===
[[Jnana Kumara of Nyag]]. Early Tibetan monk and expert translator who received the [[Four Great Rivers of Transmission]] from [[Padmasambhava]], [[Vimalamitra]], Vairotsana and [[Yudra Nyingpo]]. He worked closely with Vimalamitra in translating tantras of [[Mahayoga]] and [[Ati Yoga]]. He is also known as [[Nyag Lotsawa]] and by his secret initiation name [[Drimey Dashar]], 'Flawless Moonlight.' His initiation flower, along with Trisong Deutsen's, fell on [[Chemchok Heruka]]. Subsequently, he received the transmission of [[Nectar Medicine]] from Padmasambhava. He practiced in the [[Crystal Cave of Yarlung]], where he drew water from solid rock; it is said this water still flows today.
Jnana Kumara means 'Youthful Wakefulness.'
