I think he’s basically saying that the philosophically deconstructive Nagarjuna seemed nihilistic and cold to the wealthy and comfortable classes, so Asanga gave them a different reference point, an intimation of the inexpressible, non-dual experience of a blissful and transcendent reality. But I also think he’s implying that Asanga’s presentation makes Nagarjuna’s juggernaut more palatable to the materially comfortable without contradicting it.
