* Lotsāwa (ལོ་ཙཱ་བ།; lo tsā ba) n. Title used for the native Tibetan translators who worked together with Indian scholars (or paṇḍitas) to translate the major buddhist texts into Tibetan from Sanskrit and other Asian languages. It is generally believed that it originated from a corruption of the Sanskrit lokacakṣu, literally meaning "eyes of the world". See also paṇḍita.
