15. Without that one does not get enlightened through instructions concerning chanels and winds.

It is said: "Without the instructions that are [regarded] as non-profound,
One does not get enlightened [through instructions concerning]
The channels and the winds, which [are regarded] as profound."
This again is the [same] discussion as before: one needs to depend on the path
That includes, [all] the earlier and later, stages of the three wheels.
Therefore if one does not pracice the lower and upper approaches to liberation -
The four truths, the perfections, definitive meaning, freedom of elaborations,
Developing stage and completing stage -
In a gradual way, like rungs on a ladder,
Or if one enters immediately at the path of desire and so forth,
ie [the path] of channels, winds and drops,
Then the fruit of temporary peace and happiness will not arise,
Not to mention the attainment of perfect enlightenment.
...
17. All thoughts should be known [to be] without contradiction.

It is said: "One should understand that all thoughts in the words
Of the Buddha are without contradiction.
The 84,000 teachings were explained as methods to abandon
The 84,000 kleshas of a single persons mind stream.
All the three wheels, the tantras, etc. [should be practiced] together,
Without selecting and differentitating what is needed and what is not needed.
...

Jigten Sumgon Gongchig Commentary by Rigdzin Chokyi Dragpa The Lamp Dispelling the Darkness
"When one is not in accord with the true view
Meditation and conduct become delusion,
One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."
