Panjarnata Mahakala Yantra (Tibetan: gur gyi gon po nag po chen po kyil khor, English: the yantra [device circle] of the Great Black One, Lord of the Pavilion [or Canopy]), protector of the Hevajra Cycle of Tantras. (See another yantra of Panjarnata). A protection yantra is generally worn or carried as a talisman against dangers of every kind. They are often printed from wood blocks carved with the circle and incantations. (See the Mandala Outline Page, Yantra Main Page, Panjarnata Main Page and Outline Page).
