Vashpa (Skt. Vāṣpa or Dasabala Kasyapa; Pali Vappa; Tib. རླངས་པ་, langpa ; Wyl. rlang pa), was one of the five ascetics who practised austerities for six years with Shakyamuni Buddha before his enlightenment. He later became one of the Buddha’s first disciples and a stream enterer upon hearing the first turning of the wheel of dharma and upon hearing the second turning he became an arhat.
