The three poisons: passion, aggression, ignorance
Bodhicitta: the wish to attain enlightenment for all sentient beings, as well as practices done to achieve this.
Vaishravana: god of wealth
Sravakas and pratekyabuddhas: followers of the Theravada who practice in order to attain the nirvana of an arhat, a state in which, although one has not reached complete enlightenment, one is no longer reborn in samsara.
Shamatha: meditation practice which calms the conceptual mind and pacifies discursive thoughts.
Vipashyana: includes various analytic and resting meditations done to realize the empty nature; ultimately, involves realization of the nondual true nature of mind.
Six paramitas: generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, insight.
Four states of mental absorption: meditative states which are characteristic of beings in the formless realm, whose rebirth in that realm is a result of various stable, balanced meditations. They are called: 1) space without end; 2) consciousness without end; 3) no perceptions; 4) samsara's highest point.
Threefold purity: when one has embraced practice with the sixth paramita (insight), one ceases to conceive of the three elements (actor, act, what is acted upon) as real entities.
