Faith (In Tibetan)

Post by sangyey » Mon Sep 26, 2011 5:24 pm

What's the word for 'faith' in Tibetan as the three kinds of faith - vivid, eager, and confident? Is it either mos-pa or dad-pa?

I think you're looking for dad.pa.rnam.gsum --The Three Kinds of Faith. These are identified somewhat differently than you've listed though......"adminration, longing and trust" is one, and "Aspiring, Inspired, and Confident" is another...from Nithartha Online.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

Faith is dad pa: http://rywiki.tsadra.org/index.php/dad_pa" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The three kinds are:

Ah, okay thank you. The translation that I have as vivid, eager, and confident was taken from the refuge section in Words of My Perfect Teacher.

It seems that faith ' dad-pa ' would add the emotional flavor to to the cognition 'shes-pa' of an object where mos-pa would be the subsidiary awareness responsible for the actual apprehension of the object that was established to be true by faith 'dad-pa'.
