The three kinds of prostration (Wyl. phyag 'tshal ba'i nges pa gsum) are:

  1. The supreme prostration of encountering through the View (rab lta ba brda 'jal ba'i phyag)
  2. The middling prostration of training in meditation ('bring bsgom pa goms pa'i phyag)
  3. The lesser prostration out of devotion and respect (tha ma mos gus ya rabs kyi phyag)[1]
