These three are: (1) Namsey (rnam sras), for beings of lesser faculties, (2) Damchen Chogyal (dam can chos rgyal), for beings of medium faculties, and (3) Gonpo Chadrukpa, the Six-armed Mahakala (mgon po phyag drug pa), for beings of highest faculties. These three categories of beings correspond to those explained in the Great Graded Path (lam rim chen mo) written by Tsongkhapa. MR-ShabkarNotes]
