Innately present primordial wisdom

Post by dharmafootsteps » Tue Oct 02, 2018 6:37 pm

I'm trying to figure out a Tibetan phrase that Khenpo Sonam of Lhündrup Chöling Dharma Center translates as innately present primordial wisdom, or innately abiding wisdom.

It sounds like 'len shes rgyas pa’i yeshe' but that doesn't make any sense so can't be right. Can anyone figure out what the actual Tibetan would be? The context was 'what we need to understand to bring forth realisation' in a Dzogchen talk.

Ah yes, that's it, thank you! My ear's obvious not well tuned in, but the recording is quite clear now that you've pointed out the correct phrase.
