Vilasavajra (Skt. Vilāsavajra; Tib. སྒེག་པའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wyl. sgeg pa'i rdo rje) aka Lilavajra (Skt. Līlāvajra) or Lalitavajra was an 8th century Indian master, perhaps from Oddiyana, who wrote commentaries on Chanting the Names of Manjushri and the Guhyagarbha Tantra. Among the students of Vilasavajra, the most prominent were Buddhaguhya and Buddhajñanapada, who both studied the cycle of the Web of Magical Illusion.
