If someone wants to practice Tantrayana, he or she must first learn Sutrayana. Sutra and Tantra are like the two wings of an airplane –both are necessary for flight. Someone who desires enlightenment needs to practice both. Sutra and Tantra encompass Mahayana Buddhism and teach you how to practice, how to have love and compassion for all sentient beings. With the foundation of Sutrayana, Tantrayana becomes more beneficial.
