Maya Devi or Adimata Mahamaya is worshipped as a goddess by Buddhists and Hindus. She is the mother of Buddha and the sister of Mahapajpati Gotami, the first Buddhist nun appointed by the Buddha. According to Buddhist tradition, Maya died seven days later after Buddha’s birth and was resurrected in the Heaven of the Thirty-three Gods (Tavatimsa Heaven), a pattern that is said to be followed in the births of all Buddhas. Maya is a Sanskrit word that means illusion or enchantment. Mayadevi is also known as Mahamaya.

Buddhist Gods main description
The Buddhist pantheon comprises hundreds of Gods and Goddesses. They are intended to illustrate the multiple aspects of enlightenment, including its wrathful and furious sides, as well as its peaceful and beneficial aspects. In Mahayana Buddhism, gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings play a much bigger role than in Theravada Buddhism. They symbolize the energies, forces, and entities that surround and fill human life. They also mirror the human spirit's deeper depths, reflecting attributes that can be awakened through spiritual practice. Voluptuous tree spirits, maternal nurturers, elevated knowledge figures, benevolent healers, potent protectors, cosmic mothers of liberation, and dancing female Buddhas are all part of the pantheon. Childbirth, agriculture, fortune, longevity, art, music, knowledge, love, magic, and occult rituals are all overseen by gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings. Some of them protect against diseases, snakebites, demons, curses, untimely death, and all other fatal dangers. There are also gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings that aid practitioners in their quest for knowledge, mental cleansing, higher rebirth, and complete spiritual enlightenment.
