The nonexistence of the transcendence of suffering
is what the protector of the world has taught as the transcendence
of suffering.
Knots tied on space
are untied by space itself.

May I never be seperated from perfect masters in all lives,
and delightfully experiencing the magnificent dharma,
completing all qualities of the stages of the paths
may I quickly attain the state of Vajradhara

Of course the interesting thing is that the Nechung oracle predicted the huge Indian blackout last month

According to oracles and demons of tibet Pehar is none too happy with having been subjugated and has expressed his intention to harm his manipulators if he ever gets the chance, expressing this on different occasions during oracles, I haven't read that book in a long time but I think it says Pehar is also known to give false information on occasion.

As far as necromancy goes it's widely opined that shades / pretas are a gamble, being known for giving false information or being false identities, this is the reason most occultists usually advise against the use of the planchette / ouija board.

It was also a fad in occult circles for a while, maybe still is, for covens mostly but also solitaires to " create " a so called " spiritual baby ", either by inventing a name of a fictitious person with an entire fictitious life history etc. wich is said to actually manifest in ritual after usually quite a long time period and much ritual, and another method that actually uses bodily fluids and physical acts, but i.m.o. this is exactly the same thing as the planchette / ouija board because it's just a shade assuming the identity being projected, maybe they like the attention, and the offerings etc.

I don't do any necromancy even though I'm also a witch, as far as shades / pretas go I just do sur offerings, I also have a lot of guardian practices and also a worldy guardian practice ( wich also includes some wisdom gaurdians but mostly a bunch of worldly ones ) that I got from Garchen Rinpoche, I also include the 4 guests and the 8 classes and the all the locals in my daily serkyem offering, so my Buddhist practice amply suffices me as far as that sort of thing goes.
I don't look for any "guides" in witchcraft, my practice is only related to the elementals / nature, the planets, observing the planetary days and hours in practice, making herb sachets and herbal baths, making herbal incenses and philters, amulets, talismans, and simple tarot or pendulum divinations on occasion. I have all the classic grimoires here but I never much felt the inclination to practice them, I use witchcraft mainly to integrate with the elements and nature, the only witch diety I'm really into is the moon goddess Diana / Aradia / Habondia / Nocticula, I have a respectful relationship with the vast wilderness area around me, including superstition mountain where the dakinis dance and feast on top, of course one uses the other planets as well depending on the rite. But vajrayana Buddhism is my main thing and particularly my main yidam whom I'm very happy with for the rest of my life, I don't look for wisdom or guidance elsewhere but I do find methods of balancing, integrating, and healing elsewhere, but not really elsewhere for all this is within Tibetan and Indian culture as you pointed out, I'd like to see the shamanic part of the culture preserved with the rest but I don't think too many westerners are interested in it, Bon seems to integrate it a bit more in their teachings.
