The calculation of the five families of the Dakini
On any day of the dakinis of Vajra [families] will be the harm that comes from the pishacha demons, the Mara demons, the Mamo demons, the death demons. As for diseases, if the feet and ribs tingle and twist, then diseases associated with devastating nausea and tumors will manifest. Will be harmed by the Naga and the demons Sen. It will be useful if you practice the five types of blessings and [recite mantras] of interdependent arising. If this does not help, then when you make the shape of a black dog and a black Raven inside a ceramic Cup, place it on the edge of a large stream [river or road] in an easterly direction, performing as a ransom ritual among the noisy trees.
On any day of the dakinis of Ratna [families] — possible harm from demons of Pisacha, spirits of Tsen, demons of death, murder weapons-knives. As for diseases, if [there is pain] in the ribs, back when [there is] deep sleep and dry mouth, then you should prick with a needle-spike from a banana tree. Perform the [recitation of the mantra] of dependent arising and the blessing of the five types of fire. After placing one extended diagram inside the red ceramic bowl for [protection from] demons and a Swan for the ransom ritual, touch the moving parts of the patient's [body] or the places where the bones [join]. When you have done so, place it on the edge of a large stream [river or road] in a southerly direction, along with the performance of a ritual of ransom and [offering] with a multicolored fire.
On any day of the dakinis of Padma [families] - possible harm caused by the demons pishacha, Gyalpo and senmo. As for diseases, if it tingles in the chest or on the skin in any part of the body, then make a figure of a white crow, a monkey and a woman with one scythe. Bless the five types of metal with the [mantra] of interdependent origination. When you put it in a metal or ceramic Cup along with the patient's clothes for ransom, put it on the surface of the water in a westerly direction and [send it out].
On any day of the dakinis of Karma [families] — the potential harm caused pishacha, Naga, senmo and demonically of dremo. As for diseases, if there is pain in the back, ribs or neck, then use the following method of healing. When you make a figure of a red bull and a black woman, put them in a ceramic bowl. Having done so, bless the [mantra] of interdependent arising and the five types of water. When you put it, along with the patient's clothing for ransom and five types of water, put it on the surface of the water in a northerly direction and [send it out].
On any day of the dakinis of Buddha [families] - can be harmed by the defenders of Bon and the demons of pishacha. As for diseases, if there are unpleasant sensations in the chest or on the sides of the mouth, then you should prick the needle or thorn of the lodhra plant in the sore places. Make a figure of a toad or a frog and a woman sitting on it with one scythe. Put it in a China Cup. When you do, bless, holding a handful of earth in your hand, with the [mantra] of interdependent origin, holding everything over the sick. When you put it, along with the patient's clothing for ransom, put it on the surface of the water in a South-westerly direction and [send it to the sea].
Thus ends the divination-mo of the five families of celestial deities-the dakinis.
