The Threefold Invocation Ritual (Tib. སྤྱན་འདྲེན་རྒྱུད་གསུམ་པ།, Wyl. spyan ‘dren rgyud gsum pa) invokes all the deities of the threefold world that have entered the path of compassion to gather, pay heed to the person reciting this text (or the person for whom it is recited), and bear witness to the proclamation of that person’s commitment to the Buddhist teachings. A profound aspiration to practise ten aspects of a bodhisattva’s activity is then followed by a dedication and a prayer for the teachings.[1]
