Seven branches (Skt. saptāṅga; Tib. yenlak dün; Wyl. yan lag bdun) — As Chökyi Drakpa says: "The seven branch practice (or the seven aspects of devotional practice) incorporates all the key points for gathering the accumulations." They are:

  1. prostration, the antidote to pride
  2. offering, the antidote to avarice
  3. confession, the antidote to aggression[1]
  4. rejoicing, the antidote to jealousy
  5. requesting to turn the wheel of Dharma, the antidote to ignorance
  6. requesting not to pass into parinirvana, the antidote to wrong views[2]
  7. dedication of merit, the antidote to doubts

七支 (梵文saptāṅga; 藏文yenlak dün; 威利拼音yan lag bdun)

如同確吉.札巴(Chökyi Drakpa)所說:「七支修持(或稱七支虔修)融入了所有累積資糧的重點。」分別為:

1. 頂禮─對治傲慢

2. 供養─對治貪愛

3. 懺悔─對治瞋恨

4. 隨喜─對治疑嫉

5. 請轉法輪─對治愚痴(無明)

6. 請佛住世(不入涅槃)─對治邪見

7. 迴向功德─對治疑惑
