Praticchanna (प्रतिच्छन्न) refers to a class of bhūta deities according to both the Digambara and Śvetāmbara traditions of Jainism. The bhūtas refer to a category of vyantaras gods which represents one of the four classes of celestial beings (devas).

The deities such as the Praticchannas are defined in ancient Jain cosmological texts such as the Saṃgrahaṇīratna in the Śvetāmbara tradition or the Tiloyapaṇṇati by Yativṛṣabha (5th century) in the Digambara tradition.
