Could you clarify this Namdrol?
Self-originated here is referring the dharmakāya. It is not dependently originated. The term svayambhujñāna, self-originated wisdom )self-originated wisdom), also means a wisdom that comes from your own state, that cannot be created, cannot be shown to you, and comes from oneself.
But yourself as a relative dependent existent is the pre-requisite for the experience of dharmakaya, so dharmakaya is a dependent arisen within the scope of personal direct experience. No?
