Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol (1781-1851), one of the master works of the Tibetan religious heritage, explains Tibetan Buddhism and social and cultural life of early 19th-century.

"Sky-yogin, endowed with realization, Fortunate son, your realization of emptiness Equals that of your father -- This is wonderful indeed, O noble son! But your compassion, I think, Is not equal to his. In the same way that you meditated on emptiness, You should not meditate on compassion."
-- quote Shabkar
