The three higher trainings (Skt. triśikṣa; Wyl. lhag pa'i bslab pa gsum) are the trainings in:

  • discipline (Skt. adhiśīlaśikṣa; Wyl. tshul khrims kyi bslab pa),
  • meditation (Skt. samādhiśikṣa; Wyl. ting nge 'dzin gyi bslab pa) and
  • wisdom (Skt. prajñāśikṣa; Wyl. shes rab kyi bslab pa).

These trainings are called “higher” because, unlike certain other non-Buddhist rituals and meditation practices, they actually lead to liberation and omniscience.
