The tantra known as Destroyer of the Great Trichiliocosm (Skt. Mahāsāhasrapramardanī, Tib. སྟོང་ཆེན་མོ་རབ་ཏུ་འཇོམས་པ།, Wyl. stong chen mo rab tu 'joms pa) is found in the Kriyātantra 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 Mahāyāna-Vajrayāna Buddhism’s traditional 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.
