Tools have no power in themselves, though they do have powerful symbolic significances. Some like the Wand and Athame (pronounced ath-ay-me) are used to invoke and direct whatever power we generate or pass through them. Complementary essays examine Tibetan Buddhism's ritual tools, paintings, symbolic imagery and artistic traditions. Beautiful colour images of all artworks, including three by contemporary Nepalese-American artist Tsherin Sherpa, and selected important details enhance our understanding of .

The collected material range from the first field study in to later studies in Ladakh (), Tibet ( – ), Mongolia () and Bhutan ().
