From The Biographies of Rechungpa: The Evolution of a Tibetan Hagiography: "Atulyavajra a.k.a Atulyadāsa, Atulyadāsavajra, Atulyavajra, Atulyapāda Adulopa and Aduladhasa, was one of the seven 'middle-ranking' pupils of Maitripa, as was Tipupa. He was one of the four most famous masters in Nepal during the 1080s and assisted on the translation of eight canonical texts, three of them with Ngok Loden Sherab (rngog blo Idan shes rab, 1059-1109) who came to Nepal in the mid 1090s and one with Ban Rinchen Drak (ba ri rin chen grags, born 1040).

From The Life of Marpa the Translator: Seeing Accomplishes All: "At Mejadvīpa, there was a guru named Atulyavajra who was one of the dharma brothers gathered around the Master Maitrīpa. He also was an ācārya who had once given teaching in kriyā yoga to Lord Marpa himself.
