Vairotsana (Skt.). The great translator who lived during the reign of King Trisong Deutsen.

Among the first seven Tibetan monks, he was sent to India to study with Shri Singha.

Along with Padmasambhava and Vimalamitra, he was one of the three main masters to bring the Dzogchen teachings to Tibet.

The great and unequalled translator during the reign of King Trisong Deutsen. Vairochana, (also pronounced vairo-tsa-na), was recognized by Padmakara as a reincarnation of an Indian pandita. He was among the first seven monks and was sent to India to study with Shri Singha.

Shri Singha in turn entrusted Vairochana with the task of propagating the Mind Section and Space Section of Dzogchen in Tibet.

He is one of the three main masters to bring the Dzogchen teachings to Tibet, the two others being Padmakara and Vimalamitra.

Vairochana’s chief disciples were Yudra Nyingpo, Sangton Yeshe Lama, Pang Gen Sangye Gonpo, Jnana Kumara of Nyag, and Lady Yeshe Dronma.

An especially renowned disciple was the old Pang Gen Mipham Gonpo whose disciples attained the rainbow body for seven generations by means of the oral instructions entitled Dorje Zampa, the Vajra Bridge.

Terdag Lingpa Tsele Natsok Rangdrol, Terdag Lingpa Gyurmey Dorje, and Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye are regarded as reincarnations of Vairochana.
