These three famous verses, related to the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Saṅgha, are drawn from a longer text that appears in the Kangyur and in the Tengyur, where the text is attributed to Nāgārjuna. The version here is taken from the Compendium of Sādhanas.
This short text, which is included in the Tengyur (Toh 1144), consists of only four verses, paying homage to the Buddha, Dharma and Saṅgha from the Mahāyāna perspective.
A very short text included in the Tengyur (Toh 1146), which praises the Buddha, Dharma and Saṅgha from a Mahāyāna perspective.
The Sūtra of Recalling the Three Jewels is a popular sūtra in the Tibetan tradition, expressing the qualities of the Buddha, Dharma and Saṅgha. It has inspired a number of commentaries, from Tāranātha (1575–1643), Könchok Jigme Wangpo (1728–1791), Minyak Kunzang Sonam (1823–1905), Ju Mipham (1846–1912), and others.
