[...] Even though he is established in the sameness of extinction, he still does not interrupt bringing living beings to maturity (satva-paripāka). This, son of good family, is the gate of knowledge called the development of two approaches, [namely the great compassion and expedient means], of the Bodhisattvas. Even though the Bodhisattva is placed in the gate of knowledge after having obtained the sameness of extinction, he still performs the practice of a Bodhisattva. [...]”.
