Jnana (Skt. jñāna; Tib. ཡེ་ཤེས་, yeshé; Wyl. ye shes) can be translated as "primordial wisdom". Jnana one of the two accumulations. The primordial and nondual knowing aspect of the nature of mind. See also the five wisdoms.
Ringu Tulku says:
- "In the word yeshe, ཡེ་, yé is short for ཡེ་ནས་, yé né, which means ‘right from the beginning’ or ‘primordially’. Some people translate it as ‘pristine’ or 'pure', meaning that it is untouched and unstained, and has been there all the time. It is the way it always was."
