The Gelug Tradition compositions below depict [1] Shri Devi Magzor Gyalmo with her full retinue of accompanying deities: the two special attendants [2] Makaramukha and [3] Simhamukha, [7] the Goddesses of the Four Seasons, [12] the Five Tseringma Sisters, and the [24] Twelve Goddesses of Tibet. The Sakya, Ngor and Jonang Traditions do not appear to group the Five Tseringma Sisters, or the Twelve Goddesses of Tibet with Shri Devi Magzor Gyalmo. It appears to be a Gelug practice.
