In the Mahamudra manual Clarifying The Natural State by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal he writes: "[...] train in the gradual stages of the path for the three types of individual." A footnote states that the path for the three types is embodied in Lord Gampopa's Jewel Ornament of Liberation.

Am I to take this to mean the three types are the same as the three scopes? Namely, desiring a better rebirth, desiring liberation, and desiring Enlightenment? If so, then does this mean one needs to be a Bodhisattva to practice Mahamudra?

Thanks!
Drikung Kagyupa
