He is particularly well known for his Blue Annals (deb ther sngon po), translated into English by Nicolas Roerich, and his commentary on the Mahayana-uttaratantra-shastra. One of Gö Lotsawa's teachers was the famous Bengali scholar and Siddha Vanaratna, under whom he studied the Kalacakra teachings of Paṇḍita Vibhūti-candra and Anupamarakṣita. One of his students was the famous Thrimkang Lotsawa Sönam Gyatso (1424-1482), who also studied closely with Vanaratna. Another famous student of his was the 4th Shamar Rinpoche Chökyi Dragpa Yeshe (1453-1524). [TSD]
