Irreversible faith (Tib. ཕྱིར་མི་ལྡོག་པའི་དད་པ་, chirmidokpé depa; Wyl. phyir mi ldog pa'i dad pa) — when we truly realize the natural state, this gives rise to an irreversible faith in our teacher and the Three Jewels. ‘Irreversible faith’ is sometimes presented as the fourth type of faith, after ‘confident faith’. It is a faith that is so much a part of ourselves that even if our lives were at risk, we would never give it up.
