The three ways of pleasing or serving the teacher (Tib. མཉེས་པ་གསུམ་, Wyl. mnyes pa gsum) are:

  1. offering our practice (best way)
  2. offering service with body and speech (middling way)
  3. material offerings (lowest way)

Jokyab Rinpoche writes: "The [latter two] perfect the accumulation of merit and the [first] the accumulation of wisdom."[1]
