Kālin (कालिन्) refers to a classification of manes (Pitṛ/Pitṛgaṇa) that came into existence from Vasiṣṭha’s sweat, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.3. Accordingly:—“[...] Excepting Kratu, Vasiṣṭha, Pulastya and Aṅgiras, the six viz. Marīci and others successfully curbed their senses and their activities. O excellent sage, the semen virile of the four—Kratu and others—fell on the ground from which other types of manes were born. They were Somapās, Ājyapās, Kālins and Haviṣmantas. They are all termed Kavyavāhas also. They are their sons. The Somapās are the sons of Kratu, Kālins of Vasiṣṭha, Ājyapās of Pulastya and Haviṣmantas of Aṅgiras”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
