Isvarakrsna (Sanskrit: ईश्वर कृष्णः Chinese: 自在黑; pinyin: Zìzàihēi) (5th century AD) Whose name is connected with the Samkya Karika, probably the oldest of the six traditional systems of Indian philosophy which has its foundation attributed to the sage Kapila.

Samkya philosophy is said to have inspired Buddha, (though this is highly questionable as the Buddha predates this time by about 10 centuries) and probably Gnosticism & Neo-Platonism.
