Basic Meaning Ngok Lotsāwa Loden Sherab's "analytic tradition" of exegesis of the Uttaratantra; one of two major Tibetan traditions of exegesis, both stemming from students of Sajjana.
Has the Sense of Also known as the analytic tradition (thos bsam gyi lugs), literally, "the tradition of hearing and contemplating," this form of exegesis explicated the Uttaratantra through philosophical reasoning and debate and thus entailed a primarily scholastic approach to the treatise. However, both the Ngok Tradition and its opposing counterpart, the Tsen Tradition, reportedly came from a single source, the Kashmiri scholar-yogi Sajjana.
