Out of so many female divinities five protectress deities popularly called Pancharakshya are the most popular deities in the Nepalese pantheon. These deities are not so common in the Tibetan tradition. The order of these five deities is given as follows: Mahapratisara, Mahasahasra Pramardani, Mahamayuri, Mahasitavati, and Mahamantranusarini. The characteristic feature of each deity is that Mahapratisara protects against sin, illness and other dangers. Mahasahasra Pramardani protects against evil spirits. Mahamayuri protects against the venomous snakes and cobras, wild animals and poisonous insects. And Mahamantranusarini protects against illness.
