Rakshasa Question

One of my players had a question about the Rakshasa, and I really don't know the answer. I had assumed that when a race has a template under "______ as Characters", that you could apply that template directly without the HD level increase associated with creatures who have an LA entry but no template. (If this were correct, a 10th-level character could be Rakshasa 7/Sorcerer 3, whereas ignoring the template a 10th-level char could not be a Rakshasa at all.)

We don't use large LA PCs often. Am I missing something here? The template says it includes 7 levels of Outsider, does this mean it adds 14 levels? The template definitely seems to give more benefits than 7 levels of Sorcerer would.
