This sutra pages content an evocation of Mahakala, the 'Great Black One' and the offering of a food sacrifice presented to him in the form of tormas.
In an 'evocation' in this case, Mahakala is invoked and asked for protection. In return, a torma food offering is offered to him. The torma is shown on the first leaf. Since Mahakala is a wrathful tutelary deity, she is on fire here.
Tormas [skr. Balingta] are figures often made of dough and decorated with ornaments. In connection with initiations and also other practices, for example, a preparatory torma [tib. Ngöndro] is used to pacify obstacles. Other tormas are offered as offerings to the respective meditation deity.
These eight pages are handwritten on both sides. From the inscription on the side of each front page, one can see the page numbers [see detail 2]
Each page bears a page number in vertical notation.
