According to Miranda Shaw in the "Buddhist Goddesses of India", Sitatapatra's mantra is known as the "queen of all knowledge" or Mahavidyarajni. In the Buddhist account of the Mahayana Sutra, "Sitatapatra Sutra", this beautiful and powerful deity materialized from the Buddha's Usnisha in Trayastrimsa Heaven. Her beautiful voice was heard and she greeted the Buddha. Buddha pronounced her role to be " to cut asunder completely all malignant demons, to cut asunder all the spells of others...to to turn aside all enemies and dangers and hatred."

Her beautiful appearance belies her ferocity. Buddha pronounced her, "as a fierce, terrifying goddess, garlanded by flames, a pulverizer of enemies and demons, who manifests in the form of a graceful, beauteous maiden."

She is said to protect from just about any danger one can possibly think of. Naga's, garudas, asuras, wind sprites, kinnara, yaksa, raksasa, preta, pisaca, bhuta, matrka, dakinis and myriad demons that cause memory loss, depression, disturbing dreams, outbursts of temper, untimely death. She also cures one from horrible ailments afflicting every part of the body.

She offers protection against enemies, armies, imprisonment, royal punishment, murder, weapons, poison, quarreling, poverty, famine, wild animals, fire and water.
