Three sources of the Dzogchen teachings (Tib. བསྟན་པའི་བཙས་གསུམ་, Wyl. bstan pa'i btsas gsum) — three kinds of naturally occurring manifestations of enlightened form, speech, and mind that are present in our world as long as the Dzogchen teachings endure. When the teachings die out in our realm, these manifestations will vanish and appear in other realms.[1]
