Many Mahayana Buddhists in East Asia, Tibet, Nepal, and Java view Vairochana—Sanskrit for "Illuminator"—also known as Mahavairochana, or "Great Illuminator,” as the greatest Buddha.
Some Buddhists believe that Vairochana, also known as Mahavairochana, is distinct from the five "self-born" Dhyani-Buddhas, one of whom is Vairochana. He is considered as the source of the entire cosmos and is the most revered figure in the Japanese Shingon sect. He goes by the names Dainichi Nyorai (Japanese for "Great Sun Buddha"), Roshana, Piluzhena, Rnam-par-snang-mdzad (Tibetan for "Maker of Brilliant Light"), and Dainichi Nyorai (Chinese).
