Triyana (all three turnings of the Wheel of the dharma)

The form of Buddhism which was brought from India to Tibet incorporates all three ways mentioned above. It can therefore be called Triyana Dharma.

Virupa, the Indian mahasiddha (ca. 650 CE) taught there are three views of the path -- as seen by


1. someone working towards self-realization Hinayana
2. someone who intensely wishes to work for the sake of all beings Mahayana and
3. one who sees through the dream-like delusion and realizes non-duality Vajrayana.
