    What's the context? མནའ་བཟས་པ་, མནའ་བོར་བ་, དམ་བཅའ་ཤོར་བ་, ཁས་ལེན་ཤོར་བ་, དམ་ཚིག་དྲལ་བ་, etc., all mean "the act of breaking a promise/vow/oath" and can all be used to translate "betrayal" in slightly different contexts. But I don't think you could use it in the context of, for example, "the betrayal of a friendship" if you didn't formally swear an oath of friendship first. In that case I'd use གྲོགས་འབྲེལ་ཆད་ "cutting off of friendship" instead.
