Philosophical positions of this text
"Gyeltsap thus shows that ultimately both buddhas and sentient beings share the same suchness of mind which is the ultimate nature of mind that is free from natural defilements. Because of this he argues that all sentient beings have tathāgata-essence, and it is through this that he establishes the connection between tathāgata-essence and the concept of one-vehicle, the notion that ultimately there is only the final goal of buddhahood."
Wangchuk, Tsering, The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 99.
However, this is a tricky issue and elsewhere Wangchuk states, "For Gyeltsap, there is no contradiction in saying that the Uttaratantra comments on both last-wheel sutras and the middle-wheel sutras." Wangchuk, Tsering, The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 102.
