This is a systematic study of the Tibetan charms and amulets, mantras and cakras that have protected wearers for centuries and which remain a living tradition today. Drawing from indigenous works of the 19th century, the author illustrates and explains 109 amulets and their accompanying mantras, as well as 102 cakras, primarily associated with the Nyingma-pa and Bon traditions. The author also employs the amulets and cakras to reveal details of the myriad gods, demons and other supernatural beings - many incorporated into Buddhism from earlier belief systems - that comprise the Tibetan pantheon. This is a very important work on the subject, back in print again after many years. It offers a very important contribution to understanding of Tibetan amulets back in print after many years.
