  • vajra body (Skt. kāyavajra; Tib. སྐུའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ kü dorjé; Wyl. sku'i rdo rje),
  • vajra speech (Skt. vākvajra; Tib. གསུང་གི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ sung gi dorjé; Wyl. gsung gi rdo rje), and
  • vajra mind (Skt. cittavajra; Tib. ཐུགས་ཀྱི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ tuk kyi dorjé; 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.
