Notes on the deeper significance of various features of the vajra and bell, two ritual objects which a mantra practitioner must never be without.
In this brief and undated text, Jamyang Khyentse draws upon Jamgön Kongtrul's Treasury of Knowledge and a work by Tulku Sangye Lhawang in order to show the importance of constructing stūpas according to the specified proportions, rather than one's own ideas or preferences.
This brief text, seemingly written for a thangka artist, describes a painting dedicated to the Kadam tradition, with Jowo Atiśa as the central figure, Dromtönpa and Ngok Lotsāwa to his right and left, and other deities above and below.
