Īrṣyārati (ईर्ष्यारति) is the name of a mantra uttered by Bodhicittavajra while creating the Tathāgatamaṇḍala (the circle of the five Dhyāni Buddhas), according to Guhyasamāja.—[...] Then the Lord sat in a series of special samādhis, five in number, and became resonant with five different mantras. The vibrations in like manner were condensed in the form of five goddesses as female counterparts of the five Tathāgatas already named and were placed in their appropriate positions. [...] Thereafter he became vibrant with the sound “Īrṣyārati” which took the shape of a goddess and was placed in the southern direction as the queen of Ratnasambhava.
