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]
