Uṣṇīṣavijaya

The Uṣṇīṣa Vijaya Dhāraṇī Sūtra (English: Dhāraṇī of the Victorious Buddha-Crown) is a Mahāyāna Sūtra from India. The Sūtra is dedicated to Uṣṇīṣavijaya ("Victorious One with Uṣṇīṣa"; Tibetan: Tsuktor Namgyälma), a Buddha of long life in female form, who removes obstacles that shorten one’s life-span. Devaputra Susthita & Śakra from God’s Realm went to Buddha Śākyamuni seeking a help against rebirth in Lower Realms.
