The Three Classes of the Great Perfection (Tib. Dzogchen Desum; Wyl. rdzogs chen sde gsum) is a revelation of Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo. It was revealed in 1857[1] at Meshö Dzomnang as an earth terma taken from the Lotus Crystal Cave (pema shelpuk; padma shel phug),

a cave sacred to Guru Rinpoche.[2] Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche described it as Chokgyur Lingpa's foremost treasure, as it is the only Tibetan terma to reveal all three classes of Dzogchen.[3]
