Three vajras (Skt. trivajra; Tib. dorje sum; Wyl. rdo rje gsum) —

  • vajra body (Skt. kāyavajra; Wyl. sku'i rdo rje),
  • vajra speech (Skt. vākvajra; Wyl. gsung gi rdo rje), and
  • vajra mind (Skt. cittavajra; Wyl. thugs kyi rdo rje).

In Vajrayana, the three doors of human beings are considered to be, in essence, the three vajras or three secrets.
