Chandraprabha, or Chandraprabhakumara (Skt. Candraprabha Kumāra; Tib. ཟླ་འོད་གཞོན་ནུ་, Wyl. zla 'od gzhon nu) is a young man of Rājagrha and in the Samādhirājasūtra is the principal one taking part in a dialogue with the Buddha. In the sutra the Buddha frequently addresses him as “youth” or “young man”. Gampopa is considered to be his reincarnation.
