You run into a big problem because of the differences in dialect. Kham Kye and U Tsang Kye are quite different, and that's just one raw example...check out Amdo dialect, Golok dialect.....whew!

Hey, the Bhutanese sometimes pronounce "silent suffixes.".....go figure!

"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
