or is it an empowerment (with samaya to observe)?
^^^This^^^ in the Dudjom Tersar.
That is actually the only kind of ngakpa there is, someone who took a particular empowerment and then follow that samaya.

Perfect.

[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra
