"Sangpu Lodrö's commentary frames the Uttaratantra in a positive light, arguing that it is a commentary on definitive sutras included in the last-wheel teachings..." Wangchuk, Tsering. The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 31.

"Nevertheless, even though the Uttaratantra and the sutras on which the Uttaratantra is based occupy a position of higher scriptural authority than the middle-wheel teachings of the Prajñāpāramitāsūtras, Sangpu Lodrö claims that both the middle-wheel scriptures and the Uttaratantra teach emptiness. He argues:

"Blo-gros-mtshungs-med for his part is more intent on harmonizing the expression in the RGV with other scriptures, and probably was fully conscious of the fact that lack of reverence for śrāvakas contradicted his ekayāna stance." Kano, K., Buddha-Nature and Emptiness, p. 327.
