This amulet print that is partly illegible brings together various mantras, starting with the formula of Buddhist creed “Om ye dharma hetu prabhava hetun teshan tathagato hya vadat teshanyca yo nirodha evam vadi mahashramana svaha.” It promises the bearer of this amulet that no harm by gods and demons will happen to her or him.
