Philosophical positions of this person


"Gro-lung-pa follows faithfully rNgog’s interpretation as found in the latter’s gloss on RGV 1.27-28—the two verses that teach the dharmakāya, tathatā and the gotra as being three reasons why all sentient beings possess Buddha-nature." Kano, K., Buddha-Nature and Emptiness, p. 340.

"Gro-lung-pa appears elsewhere in the same text to endorse rNgog’s idea of tathatā as emptiness, and follows rNgog’s position with regard to the ineffability of the ultimate." Kano, K., Buddha-Nature and Emptiness, p. 340.
