Pronunciation of "ai" in Tibetan

Postby Sherlock » Sat Sep 22, 2012 4:14 pm

When is "ai" pronounced /ai/? In ChNN's own name for instance, it is usually pronounced /ai/ but in other instances invovling the genitive of namkha it is pronounced /namkhe/.

It depends on where you are from in Tibet.

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