Translation by Peter Alan Roberts
  • Śikhin
  • གཙུག་ཏོར་ཅན།
  • gtsug tor can
  • Śikhin

In early Buddhism the second of seven buddhas, with Śākyamuni as the seventh. The first three buddhas‍—Vipaśyin, Śikhin, and Viśvabhuk‍—appeared in a kalpa earlier than our Bhadra kalpa, and therefore Śākyamuni is more commonly referred to as the fourth buddha. Also translated elsewhere as gtsug ldan; the Mahāvyutpatti also translates as gtsug tor can.
