3 liberations (stong pa nyid, mtshan ma med pa, smon pa med pa), SA sgo gsum [JV]

The Three Complete Liberations are Emptiness (Skt. śūnyatā, Tib. སྟོང་པ་ཉིད་, Wyl. stong pa nyid), Signlessness (absence of characteristics or attributes, Skt. animitta, Tib. མཚན་ཉིད་མེད་པ་, Wyl. mtshan nyid med pa), and Wishlessness (absence of expectancy (Skt. apraṇihita; Tib. སྨོན་པ་མེད་པ་, Wyl. smon pa med pa). Synonymous with the 'Three Doors-' or 'Gateways of/to Liberation', rnam par thar pa'i sgo gsum or rnam thar sgo gsum. See also the long form, rnam par thar pa gsum. [Erick Tsiknopoulos]
