Kyabje Kangyur Rinpoche’s tagdröl yantra
This yantra (mantra‐diagram) is a tagdröl (Tibetan word meaning “liberation through wearing”). Tagdröls are known as one of the "six liberations", which include hearing (thödröl), seeing (tongdröl), remembering (drendröl), touching (regdröl), wearing (tagdröl) and tasting (nyongdröl). The symbols in this yantra represent the mantras of the peaceful deities, vidyadharas, and wrathful deities. In order to help alleviate suffering during the bardo (intermediate state between death and rebirth), it is often placed on the deceased persons’ body after death and either buried or burned with the body. Such precious mandala protections are often worn inside a gau (metal container / locket) or inside a pouch around the neck or above the waist and are known to bestow great benefit and protection from obstacles. The yantra may be folded in order to place it inside a locket, so long as a fold is not made in over the syllable Hung – the Tibetan letter in the very centre of both diagrams. How to fold the yantra: first fold the square and circle yantras towards one another (so that both prints are touching). Then, with the square facing upright, imagine two vertical lines dividing the diagram in to three equal parts or panels. Fold the right side (vertical panel making up one‐third of the total width) towards the centre, then fold the left side vertically over the right panel (avoid making a fold directly in the center of the syllable Hung). Now, you should have one panel representing one‐third of the original width (with the other two panels folded over top). Next, imagine two horizontal lines dividing the paper into 3 parts. Fold the bottom part up toward the center, then fold the top down toward the center. The side of the yantra with a solid fold should be the top of the tagdröl (with the Hung right side up, as shown in the diagram to the right).
The Tibetan syllable Hung
For blessing and protection of deceased persons
The yantra should be printed out in a format where the letters are all clearly visible, and then, if possible, painted with saffron water and dried. How to place the yantra: the yantra is placed on the body at the level of the heart. For discretion, the yantra may be placed in an envelope. The writing is placed toward the body (facedown), and must avoid being placed upside down. For those who do not read Tibetan, the sword in the upper right corner of the square image should be pointing up toward the head of the deceased person. Please see the next page for the tagdröl yantra images.
