Buddhajñanapada (Skt. Buddhajñānapāda; Tib. སངས་རྒྱས་ཡེ་ཤེས་ཞབས་, sangye yeshe shyab, Wyl. sangs rgyas ye shes zhabs)(ca. 750-820) was a disciple of Haribhadra, and is also associated with the transmission of the Guhyasamaja Tantra. He is the author of a commentary on the Verse Summary of the Perfection of Wisdom.

Jikme Lingpa mentions in the auto-commentary on his Treasury of Precious Qualities that Buddhajñanapada's terminology and tenets are very similar to that of the Great Perfection.
