Kulagiri (कुलगिरि) (or Kollāgiri) is another name for Kollā: a sacred place identified with the Mātṛkā named Kaumārī, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—According to the Kubjikā Tantras, the eight major Kaula sacred sites each have a house occupied by a woman of low caste who is identified with a Mother (Mātṛkā).—[...] Kollā is identified with (a) the class of fisherwoman (kaivartī) [or butcher woman (saunī)], (b) the Mātṛkā or ‘mother’ named Kaumārī, and (c) with the location of ‘throat’.
Note: Kollā is Kollāgiri. The edition of the Tantrāloka reads Kulagiri.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
