The three higher trainings (Skt. triśikṣa; Tib. ལྷག་པའི་བསླབ་པ་གསུམ་, lhagpé labpa sum) are the trainings in:

  • discipline (Skt. adhiśīlaśikṣa; Tib. ཚུལ་ཁྲིམས་ཀྱི་བསླབ་པ་, Wyl. tshul khrims kyi bslab pa),
  • meditation (Skt. samādhiśikṣa; Tib. ཏིང་ངེ་འཛིན་གྱི་བསླབ་པ་, Wyl. ting nge 'dzin gyi bslab pa) and
  • wisdom (Skt. prajñāśikṣa; Tib. ཤེས་རབ་ཀྱི་བསླབ་པ་, 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.
