In Tibet calligraphy is a sacred art. The letters are one of the veichles through we can learn and hear the Dharma. Everybody recognize, looking at it, that a statue representing the Buddha is actually representing Him; but few know that, at a deeper level, this statue represent the Enlighted Mind, why this object is a material manifestation of the Buddha himself, and due to this fact one have to follow precise rules and proportion in producing such an image, as well in thangka painting. Those rules and precise proportions are transmitted by a Lineage that endures from centuries.
The same is valid as well for the calligraphy.
There are many styles in Tibetan writing.

We will understand the main principles of yoga tantra, and the origin of the mandala of the five father buddhas, Supreme Healers Akshokhya, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha Amogasiddhi and Vairochana, and the five great element mothers, Great Mothers Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Space, so important for practitioners of NgalSo tantric Self healing and making peace with the environment.
The practice of Vajrayogini, one of the most important of the Mahanuttara Yoga Tantra, the highest class of Tantra, is considered one of the most powerful of all Buddhist Tantric meditations. Buddha emanated Vajrayogini, a special female enlightened being, 2500 years ago. She is the female counterpart of Heruka, the Lord of the Heroes, and she teaches us how to attain enlightenment through purifying our female essence, our dakini nature. In the course of centuries many high lamas, yogis and accomplished Mahasiddhas have explained that the tantra of Vajrayogini is an excellent antidote against the damages brought about by an excess of avidity and greed. Furthermore they stated that with the increasing levels of the moral and energetic degeneration of the planet, the Vajrayogini Tantra would have also acquired an increasingly greater power and that the realisations brought about by it’s practice can lead to Enlightenment in a single lifetime. This practice is particularly indicated for those who are consumed by desire; it is very simple although it contains the essence of all the tantras. Practicing with sincerity, it can help resolve desperate situations and lead quickly to the Pureland of the Dakinis and to the Clear Light of Bliss.
