Are there any Tibetan healers out there? About 1000 years ago , Sumatra Indonesia was a Buddhist centre for Chinese students before travelling to Tibet.
"The phurba appear in different rituals concerning divination and healing. In the middle of these rituals the jhankri takes hold of his ritual dagger and starts to dance furiously directing the phurba towards all the places where an evil presence could be lodged. To heal his patient he vigorously touches the part of the body where he is suffering with the triangular blade of his wooden knife. This is adorned with snakes - symbols of fecundity and powerful telluric forces - being fought by an eagle, ally of the divine forces of heaven."_ Kovacs. 2nd article in :

Do you think this ceremony was Tantric Buddhism ?:
