sahajakleśāvaraṇa (T. nyon sgrib lhan skyes ཉོན་སྒྲིབ་ལྷན་སྐྱེས; C. jusheng fannao zhang/jusheng huo) is translated as "innate afflictive obstructions," "co-emergent afflictive obstructions," etc.

It refers to afflictive obstructions (kleśā-varaṇa) that "derive from mistaken conceptions of self that are generated and reinforced over many lifetimes."[1]

Sahajakleśāvaraṇa is contrasted with parikalpitakleśāvaraṇa (imputed afflictive obstructions).
