Pronunciation of "ai" in Tibetan

When is "ai" pronounced /ai/? In ChNN's own name for instance, it is usually pronounced /ai/ but in other instances invovling the genitive of namkha it is pronounced /namkhe/.

It depends on where you are from in Tibet.

The very meaning of the Tibetan term Dzogchen, "Great Perfection," refers to the true primordial state of every individual and not to any transcendent reality.
