Bhagnanāsā (भग्ननासा) is the name of a Goddess (Devī) presiding over Rājagṛha: one of the twenty-four sacred districts mentioned in the Kubjikāmatatantra (chapter 22). Her weapon is the vajra and śakti. Furthermore, Bhagnanāsā is accompanied by the Kṣetrapāla (field-protector) named Mahākarṇa. A similar system appears in the 9th century Vajraḍākatantra (chapter 18).
