(Redirected from The Precious Lamp That Illuminates the Definitive Meaning of the Mahāyāna Uttaratantra Treatise)
An extensive commentary on the Uttaratantra written by a contemporary of Dölpopa and Butön during the height of the debate over the definitive nature of the treatise and its teaching on buddha-nature. Lodrö Tsungme presents an interpretation of buddha-nature which is different from what is given by many masters of Sangphu including Ngok Loden Sherab. As his position are quite similar to what Longchenpa espoused later, the commentary was mistakenly attributed to Longchenpa by some Nyingma followers.
Relevance to Buddha-nature
A lengthy commentary that presents the Uttaratantra in a positive light and opposes the positions of earlier scholars from Sangpu Neutok, such as Ngok and Chapa. Some scholars of the Nyingma school have mistakenly assumed this to be a work of Longchenpa.
