The sūtra known as The Prophecy of Śrī Mahādevī (Skt. Śrī­mahā­devī­vyākaraṇa, Tib. ལྷ་མོ་ཆེན་མོ་དཔལ་ལུང་བསྟན་པ་, lhamo chenmo pal lungten pa, Wyl. lha mo chen mo dpal lung bstan pa) is found in the General Sūtra (mdo sde) section of the Tibetan Kangyur (Toh. 193/739).

This sūtra recounts events that took place in the realm of Sukhāvatī, and begins with Buddha recounting to the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara recounting the accomplishments of Śrī Mahādevī, along with a prophecy in which her future enlightenment was foretold by all the buddhas she venerated, and her many names and benefits of reciting them.
