Vairotsana instructing Pang Mipham Gönpo from a painting by Dugu Choegyal Rinpoche

Pang Mipham Gönpo (Tib. སྤང་མི་ཕམ་མགོན་པོ་, Wyl. spang mi pham mgon po) was a student of Vairotsana. He was already eighty years old when he met his famous teacher but by practising diligently with the aid of a 'meditation support' he gained realization and ultimately attained the rainbow body.
