sanskrit translation of "rNam Dag"

Postby namoh » Wed Sep 12, 2012 4:57 am

Does anyone (Loppon-la perhaps?) know the Sanskrit word for the Tibetan name Namdag (rnam dag)? I'm assuming that there is a specific term that correlates.
Much thanks!

"Viśuddha" is good. Breaks up as: the intensifier "vi" for rnam and the ppp. śuddha for dag.

Actually, at the risk of splitting hairs, Vishuddha seems to also mean Yangdak. Does it simply serve double duty?

So called “sentient beings” are merely delusions self-appearing from the dhātu of luminosity.
