The four ambitions (Wyl. gtad pa bzhi), which are counted among the ten innermost riches of the Kadampas, are:

  1. Set your mind upon the Dharma (blo phugs chos la gtad)
  2. Entrust your Dharma to a life of poverty (chos phugs sprang la gtad)
  3. Consign your life of poverty to eventual death (sprang phugs shi la gtad)
  4. Let that death be in an empty, barren hollow (shi phugs grog po skam la gtad)
