SHARP PRACTICE

: The Ritual Dagger in Bon Sorcery and Vajrayana Buddhism.



By Robert Fitzgerald

Three Hands Press, 2019. Limited to 888 hand numbered copies. Ritual daggers have long been vital accoutrements in the exercise of magic, sorcery and shamanic practice. As a means of subduing demonic forces, their essence is derived from their power to penetrate and transfix. In India and Tibet, they are the centrer of an ancient spiritual lineage of devotees, who use the dagger, or phurba, as a means of both exorcism and enlightenment. SHARP PRACTICE is an exposition upon 'the Dagger as Deity' as purely expressed within Bön practice and Vajrayana [Thunderbotl Vehicle] Buddhism. It further delineates the evolution of the Phurba as ritual weapon, by examining its deific essence, as well as its iconography, the book concludes with a rite dedicated to the Three Jewels, inspired by each tradition. Originally conceived for the 'Three Hands Press Occult Monographs' series, the text has been expanded from its original form, and includes several original illustrations by Chicago based artist Johnny Decker Miller.
