Sharp Practice - Robert Fitzgerald [Bon Sorcery Dagger]

£39.99Price

This book is a study of the ritual dagger in Bon sorcery, within the culture of Vajrayana Buddhism. Known as a phurba, it is a potent object which can transfix those it is aimed at, and which  has the power to subdue demonic forces. Fitzgerald traces the history of the phurba and its evolution as a deity-like sentient being. Malefic magic, mandalas, amulets, iconography and finally, a ritual text, all round out the coverage of the book. Three Hands Press issues it in a hardback edition limited to 888 hand-numbered copies.
