Philosophical positions of this text
"Sazang also demonstrates that both tathāgata-essence and its attendant enlightened qualities exist inherently and permanently in the nature of all living beings. Wangchuk, Tsering, The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 58.
"Finally, although his Uttaratantra commentary does not explicitly raise the issue of whether last-wheel texts such as the Samdhinirmocanasūtra and the Mahāyānasūtrālamkāra explain the view of Cittamātra or Madhyamaka, his commentary on the Abhidharmasamuccaya addresses the question and follows Dolpopa's position quite closely. In it, he clearly demonstrates that these treatises explain Cittamātra temporarily, but ultimately they teach the ultimate truth of the Madhyamaka." Wangchuk, Tsering, The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 58.
"While the commentary does not employ the word "other-emptiness" to describe the ultimate truth, it explains the ultimate truth or tathāgata-essence in the way that other-emptiness is delineated in Dolpopa's works." Wangchuk, Tsering, The Uttaratantra in the Land of Snows, p. 58.
