The deity Mahamaya originates in the Sanskrit text of the Mahamaya Tantra and subsequently found in the Tibetan compilation collections of the Vajravali, Mitra Gyatsa, Rinjung Gyatsa and Rinjung Lhantab. Mahamaya is also regarded as a special deity of the Ngog lineage of the Marpa Kagyu Tradition. Within the Shangpa Kagyu School Mahamaya is included as one of the Five Tantra Deities (Gyu de lha nga) combined as a single meditation practice.
