This broad section of Incantations, which corresponds to the gzungs ’dus division of the Degé Kangyur, contains two subdivisions: the Compendium of Incantations, a collection of 249 dhāraṇī incantations themselves (Toh 846-1093), and a small group of 15 texts (Toh 1094-1108) included at the end of the section as a whole by way of dedication and aspiration prayers.
