Sitaraśmi (सितरश्मि) is the name of an Uṣṇīṣa king [i.e., Uṣṇīṣarāja] mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism.
