with Gen Kelsang Chokyi
“Although Tantra is very popular, not many people understand its real meaning. Some people deny Buddha’s Tantric teachings, whereas others misuse them for worldly attainments; and many people are confused about the union of Sutra and Tantra practice, mistakenly believing that Sutra and Tantra are contradictory. In Condensed Heruka Root Tantra Buddha says:
You should never abandon Highest Yoga Tantra,
But realize that it has inconceivable meaning
And is the very essence of Buddhadharma.
When we understand the real meaning of Tantra there will be no basis for misusing it, and we shall see that there are no contradictions at all between Sutra and Tantra. Practicing Sutra teachings is the basic foundation for practicing Tantric teachings, and the practice of Tantra is the quick method to fulfill the ultimate goal of Sutra teachings.”
