Ushnishavijaya (Tsug tor nam par gyal ma in Tibetan or Namgyalma in its commonly used form) is a special emanation of Supreme Healer Vairochana and is one of the three main long life deities of the Ganden Nyingyu tradition, the other two being White Tara and Amitayus.
Ushnishavijaya is also considered an emanation of Prajnaparamita, the Perfection of Wisdom and Mother of All the Buddhas. She manifests in a special long-life stupa and represents the mind of all enlightened beings.
Ushnishavijaya with nine deities is an action tantra of the buddha family of Supreme Healer Vairochana. She is also the Guardian of the Zenith in the Mandala of yellow Vajratara. In this capacity she is also known by the names Ushnishavijayatara, or simply Ushnisha, and is the yum, or female consort, of the male deity Ushnishachakravartin.
Ushnishavijaya was the special meditation deity of Vasubhandu, the half-brother of Asanga. Vasubhandu was one of the founders of the Chittamantra or Mind Only School of Mahayana Buddhism.
