Tripraṇidhāna (त्रिप्रणिधान) or simply Praṇidhāna refers to the “three kinds of aspirations” as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 112):

  1. susthāna-prābandhika (bound to the beautiful),
  2. sattvārtha-prābandhika (bound to the welfare of beings),
  3. buddhakṣetra-pariśodhaka (purifying the Buddha-field).

The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (eg., praṇidhāna). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
