Threefold Training:—A technical term in Buddhism corresponding to the Sanskrit śikṣā defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 137):

  1. Training in the higher mind (adhicitta-śikṣā),
  2. Training in the higher virtue (adhiśīla-śikṣā),
  3. Training in the higher wisdom (adhiprajñā-śikṣā).

The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (e.g., ‘threefold training’). The work is attributed to Nagarguna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
