Damshtrasena (Skt. Daṃṣṭrāsena; Tib. མཆེ་བའི་སྡེ་, chewé dé, Wyl. mche ba'i sde) was a Kashmiri master identified as the author of two Prajnaparamita commentaries contained within the Tengyur. The authorship of these works is however disputed, with some scholars, including Butön, ascribing one of them to Vasubandhu.
