In my teachings, the view must accord with the body of ultimate enlightenment; conduct, with bodhisattvas’ conduct. If conduct is determined by the view, it becomes nihilism, will know neither vice nor virtue, and cannot be corrected later. If the view is determined by conduct, one becomes bound by material forms and will not gain liberation. In my teachings on the mind, the view predominates. In the future, there will be those who understand the meaning of the words but have not gained confidence through experience, and will want to try many different ways to help sentient beings.

— Padmasambahva, Guru Rinpoche
