Ngok Loden Sherab once famously observed:. Even at a young age he was extraordinarily intelligent and demonstrated miraculous abilities, such as being able to fly through the sky and read the minds of others.


When Trisong Detsen was attempting to establish the Dharma in Tibet , he brought Vairotsana to Samye and had him train as a translator. The king sent Vairotsana and another monk, Lektrup, on the arduous journey to India , in order to study and receive Dharma transmissions. After many hardships they finally met the master Shri Simha at the forest of Tsenden Silche, offering him a mandala of gold and requesting instruction on the effortless spiritual approach Dzogchen.

Shri Simha agreed to teach them, but gave the following warning: "I can impart to you the profound key points under a seal of secrecy, but your life will be in danger under the king's punitive laws if you do not keep this very secret.

So by day you will listen to the teachings on cause and effect from other great scholars; by night I will reveal to you the spiritual teachings of direct transmission. At night Shri Simha wrote down the eighteen pith instructions of Dzogchen Semde Category of Mind on white silk, using the milk of a white goat.

When he wished to reveal the text, the silk was held over a smoking fire and the letters became visible.

What is Kobo Super Points?

The monk Lektrup was satisfied with what he had received and departed for the return journey to Tibet. Unfortunately he was killed on the way. However, Vairotsana was not satisfied and requested further teachings. Shri Simha therefore bestowed on him all of the empowerment's and pith instructions of the sixty Tantras of Dzogchen Semde , as well as the three cycles of Dzogchen Longde Category of Expanse.

Having then travelled to the great charnel ground of Dhumagata , Vairotsana met the master Prahevajra Garab Dorje and received from him the ultimate lineage of the 6,, verses of the Dzogchen Tantras. In some accounts, he received this transmission through a pure vision of Prahevajra , rather than having met him in person.

Stock Image. This article is about the Tibetan translator. For the primordial Buddha Vairocana, please see Vairocana. Vairotsana Wylie : ba gor bai ro tsa na was a lotsawa or "translator" living during the reign of King Trisong Detsen , who ruled CE. Vairotsana, one of the 25 main disciples of Padmasambhava , was recognized by the latter as a reincarnation of an Indian pandita. He is one of the three main masters to bring the Dzogchen teachings to Tibet, the two others being Padmasambhava and Vimalamitra , and was also a significant lineage holder of trul khor.

After he had presented a huge offering of gold, they conferred empowerment upon him and bestowed their blessings, with the prediction that he would receive the complete teachings from Shri Singha. He is named after Vairocana , the central dhyani Buddha.
