I've been reading "Buddha's Brain" which talks about Buddhism being used for helping to heal over traumatic events. Pretty decent.
However, for more complex issues ("I just wish there could be a quick fix for when the demons arise ... ") I'm beginning to
study the practice of Vajrakilaya. At this point I know little other than it precedes Buddhism in Tibet and that the "purbha"
dagger is designed to "pin down" and destroy anger and other impediments as they arise. Just passing it along. Much to learn.
