There at least three forms of the worldly protector named Tseringma. The first is a protector of Shalu Monastery. The second is the famous mountain goddess with her four sisters called Tashi Tseringma Che Nga. The third is a much later version arisen from the Longchen Nyingtig 'Revealed Treasure' tradition of the 18th century.
