Taken from Siddha Kunjika strotram:

ऐंकारी सृष्टि रूपाये ह्रींकारी प्रतिपालिका क्रींकारी कामरूपिण्यै बीजरूपे नमोस्तुते

ह्रीं is a seed(बीज) mantra of goddess Para-shakti/Durga or Maya.

ह्रीं is symbolization of Maya for her act of guarding and maintaining the existence of the world.

As it is a seed mantra, one can find it's usage in many other mantras, Tantra & Yantra sects.

Reference reading: Siddha Kunjika strotra, Devi Bhagwat(Durga Saptshati) - Markandeya Purana
