For subjugating Vampires of Loss, write a TRI with the blood of the life force and heart of a Loss victim; insert it inside the skull of a Loss victim, and wrap it in cotton cloth. Gather up as many bones of these as you can find, as well as a pair of (TY) ears and blood from the lungs; First, secure the support (dpung bzhal TY) of the gods; invoke them as witnesses, then summon the Vampire of Loss and diffuse it [into the effigies]. If there is an assistant [for the priest], for the invocation of the truth say as follows: 

HUM! One day all the gods and demons of the phenomenal world, the ten demonic hungry ghosts with their karmic burden, failed to appreciate this as the truth. The eight haughty ones of the phenomenal world did not support it. At the beginning of the world ages,

The bones that fell on the ground, from the bones of horses that were left in the houses, the following year there came Vampires of Loss of Horses.

Defeat the Loss Vampire of Yaks, press it down! Defeat the Loss Vampire of Yak-cows, press it down! Defeat the Loss Vampire of Cows, press it down! Defeat the Loss Vampire of Sheep, press it down! Defeat the Loss Vampire of Goats, press it down! Defeat the Loss Vampire of Donkeys, press it down! The father of the bones was full of hate; the mother of the bones was full of desire. It was from these parents that they first came, and later the consciousness approached a demon.  The first thing to develop was the navel; then there developed the body and the limbs; the consciousness then settled at the heart. Crush down the demon of desire that settled at the heart! The doors of the five sense-fields are in the head; press down the Vampire of Loss at its five sense-doors! It is the eyes that give sight: impair that sense of sight! It is the ears that give hearing: impair the sense of hearing!

It is the nose that gives smell: impair the sense of smell! It is the tongue that gives taste: impair the sense of taste! It is the heart that provides memory: impair the sense that brings about change (i.e. the mind, sems)! This consciousness of the evil demon has been forced into the doorless iron chamber of its own head. Bind it so that it is unable to move!

After striking it, perform the “pressing down” either at the dried course of a flash flood or at a crossroads. At a place that resembles the phyugs ldan (?) of the enemy, dig a triangular pit and bury it in there.

HUM! Beneath the nine levels of the earth is the land of the dre, srin and byur demons. Think of this land of yours – that is where your allotted food is. Bear in mind the virtuous and sinful actions about which the black lord of death has given religious instruction.

Until you ponder the thought of enlightenment, may you never get out! (mantras) With these words, perform the “pressing down” at some meeting of the ways, and subjugate it further by covering it with poisonous wood and water and suchlike, as well as black stones, and seal the opening with a vajra crossed. Press it down beneath the nine-tiered earth. Following the crushing of the Vampire of Loss, your livestock will escape from the maw of the vampires.

Bind and seal the Loss using the ’Bum thig, that is a tantra of gto. If your cattle continue to die, take the skull of the last one to die and on the occiput draw a swastika; on the forehead draw pair of crossed vajras; and on the outside rim draw the eight trigrams. Set the seals of Bon, Buddhism and the vajra. On the right side and left sides of the jaw place write “seal the mouths of the Vampires of Loss; press down the Vampires of Loss, all Vampires of Loss. All Vampires and Demons of Loss are imprisoned inside this head. The Demons of Loss have been pressed down; they have been annihilated and pressed down. Do not rise again!” This is what you should write. Perform the rite of pressing down on the ground of a cattle pen, or at a crossroads.

Upon this seat of the five elements perform the dance of the set of five great gsas gods; dance so that the five poisons are purified in their own natural condition (TY).

and press down the nine siblings, the Demons of Greed that bring loss. Upon a seat of interlaced yak horns step out the dance of youthful gods of the middle space (unknown), and thoroughly press down the hostile vampires without exception. Press them down with the magical power of the lha gods and the gsas gods; press them down with the recitations of the bon and gshen priests; press them down with the powerful and mighty protectors; press them down with the chant of the almighty primordial gshen; send misfortune against the gossip of the enemy and press them down; crush all evil intentions. Do not arise from where you are buried, do not get up from where I have forced you down! Blessings.
