if its this, a bit mis-spelled:

"gnyis snang 'khrul ba'i sems can"

it could mean something like "sentient beings of confused dualistic appearances".

if its from a mind-only text it would be referring to the dualistic appearance of mind appearing as both subject and object.

need more context. need Lopon.

(BTW "chan" is soupy cooked grain like congee.)

You did catch the mis-spellings.
Your translation is similar to what I was thinking.
Thanks for contributing, I am curious to see how others would interpret the statement.

I think "sentient beings with confused dualistic appearances".
