The tantra known as Destroyer of the Great Trichiliocosm (Skt. Mahā­sāhasra­pramardanī; Tib. སྟོང་ཆེན་མོ་རབ་ཏུ་འཇོམས་པ་, tongchen mo rabtu jompa, Wyl. stong chen mo rab tu 'joms pa) is found in the Kriya Tantra section of the Tibetan Kangyur (Toh 558).

This tantra is one of five texts that together constitute the Pañcarakṣā scriptural collection, popular for centuries as an important facet of the Tantra Mahayana approach to personal and communal misfortunes of all kinds. It primarily addresses illnesses caused by spirit entities thought to devour the vitality of humans and animals.
