This yantra (mantradiagram) is a tagdrl (Tibetan word meaning liberation through wearing). Tagdrls are known as one of the "six liberations", which include hearing (thdrl), seeing (tongdrl), remembering (drendrl), touching (regdrl), wearing (tagdrl) and tasting (nyongdrl). 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 placedonthedeceasedpersonsbodyafterdeathandeitherburiedorburnedwiththebody. 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 ofbothdiagrams.Howtofoldtheyantra:firstfoldthesquareandcircleyantrastowardsone another (so that both prints are touching).

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 tagdrl (with the Hungrightsideup,asshowninthediagramtotheright).

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.
