Palden Lhamo (Skt. Śrīdēvī; Tib. དཔལ་ལྡན་ལྷ་མོ་, Wyl. dpal ldan lha mo) is one of the main dharmapalas of Tibetan Buddhism and of Tibet. Palden Lhamo is one of the main principal female wisdom protectors of Himalayan and Tibetan Buddhism.

Within the Gelugpa, she is strongly associated with the Dalai Lama Incarnation Line and with the Panchen Lama Incarnation Line. Palden Lhamo is also related to the Lhamo Lhasto lake, in Dakpo. Over the years, many of the Dalai Lamas and their regents went to practise around this lake in order to receive visions and indications.

Remati is the name of the very wrathful form of Palden Lhamo.
