Sitātapatrā, referred to as ‘White Umbrella One’ Goddess who averts evil influences
and protects from all kind of disasters and malignant beings with her dhāraṇī. Multiple
manuscripts and blockprints dedicated to this goddess, in Old Uyghur and other languages
of Central Asia are stored in different world collections. This paper deals with the
Old Uyghur fragments of the Sitātapatrā dhāraṇī preserved in the Serindia Collection of
the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IOM, RAS).
These fragments refer to the same blockprint edition and this study involves the transliteration,
transcription and translation of these fragments within the scope of semantic sequence.
