Pawo

In Vajrayana Buddhism, Pawo (Wylie: dpa' bo; literally "brave guy") is translated "hero" or "warrior". Depending on context, it can refer to the ideal of a Vajrayana practitioner; to living people (where it is sometimes used as an honorific or part of a name); to legendary or mythical figures from the past; or to purely spiritual beings.

"Pawo" translates the Sanskrit terms daka and vira, with similar meaning.

Pawos are typically described in consort with khandros, their feminine counterparts.

The tülku Nenang Pawo is often known simply as Pawo Rinpoche.

The concept plays a central role in Chögyam Trungpa's Shambhala terma, where "pawo" is translated "warrior".
