Trulshik Sengé Gyabpa (Tib. འཁྲུལ་ཞིག་སེང་གེ་རྒྱབ་པ་, Wyl. 'khrul zhig seng ge rgyab pa) (13th century) — an important lineage master of the Nyingtik teachings who was born in Central Tibet and lived to the age of sixty-four.

Sengé Gyabpa received all the empowerments, teachings, and instructions of the secret Dzogchen approach from Guru Jober. He spent many years at mountain retreats and solitary places like Drowo Valley, devoting himself assiduously to these teachings as the very heart of his practice. He then brought many students to spiritual maturity and liberation. Drupchen Melong Dorje was his heart disciple and to him, he passed on the tantras and pith instructions of the Nyingtik in their entirety.[1]
