There are many voodoo arts in Tibetan Lamaism, some of them are so disturbing that Tibetan lamas have tried hard to hide them from the public view. One of such arts is called "Spirit Transformation", aiming at bringing invisible spirits into visible existence.

To achieve this transformation, a lama practitioner has to mentally picture that he has thoroughly destroyed his own body and spirit, and turned himself into a vacant vehicle with no distinctive consciousness and personality. In the next step, he would need to visualize the appearance of the spiritual being that he wishes himself, as a vacant vehicle, to accommodate with until the spirit is so vivid in his mind that he feels he can see it with his mortal eye. By then, this invisible being is ready to be restored in this visible world, and a phantom as such is called "Yiddam" in Tibetan.

Yiddams are not the creations of Lama practitioners' own imagination but formally illustrated in the Lamaist Tantras down to meticulous details, including their facial features, body structure, skin colour, unique clothing, certain actions and typical expression.

Once a spirit has been developed into a Yiddam, the Lama practitioner will further mould each of his cell according to the traits of the description to the point that he can perfectly merge his visible body with the invisible spirit into one single entity. When that moment comes, that ancient spirit is alive again with flesh and blood.

Today, the lamas - regardless where they reside, in North America or Europe, Tibet or India - are still calling the same old spirits portrayed in their ancient Tantra text.

But the power of transformation, that enables lamas to achieve an complete unity with spirits when they are needed and repel the spirits when they are no longer required, cannot be obtained solely by mental visualisation. A certain tangible material has to be involved to switch on and sequence the process. This vary tangible material, as Lamaism insists, is hidden deep in women’s body, and the way to dig it up is through sex.
