The first section presents two paintings and an incomplete set of line drawings documenting a tradition of eighty-four (great) adepts ([maha] siddha) from Nepal. The 2nd section focuses on manifestations of (Cakra) samvaras, a form of Heruka, and includes a reproduction of images of two groups of Samvaras. The first document is a painted scroll showing the group of sixty-four Samvaras, the second one is a set of line drawings which shows what are likely thirty-six Samvaras. The last section presents a set of line drawings which is based on a section of the parikramavidhi found in chapter 6 of Kuladatta's Kriyasamgraha(panjika).
