Pragyanparmita was a feminine divinity of the Mahayana School of Buddhism. The word Pragyanparmita means ‘Perfection of Insight’. Pragyanparmita are the main attributes of a Boddhistava. They are ten in numbers. It was given a feminine character. Later, it was in itself treated as one of the Boddhistava.

Later, the rise of feminine divinities gave rise to the third school of Buddhism which is known as Vajrayana. In Vajrayana, the Buddhas and Boddhistavas have their female counterparts also who were active in the world.
