Buddhaguhya (fl. c700 CE[1]) was a Vajrayana Buddhist scholar-monk. Vimalamitra was one of his students. Apart from his commentary on the Maha-Vairocana-Abhisambodhi Tantra, we know little of Buddhaguhya.[1] A major commentary by Buddhaguhya of the Mahavairocana Tantra was written in 760 and is preserved in Tibetan. Hodge translates it into English alongside the text itself. Buddhaguhya is held to have received teachings from Lilavajra.
