Kulālikā (कुलालिका) is a name for the Goddess (i.e. Kubjikā), according to the Manthānabhairavatantra (Yogakhaṇḍa), vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “(She) is the great, venerable and eternal power that moves within the energy of consciousness. When angry, she brings about destruction. When content, she is the means to gain success (siddhi). Devoted to the practice of heroes (vīracaryā), she is Kulālikā (i.e. Kubjikā) in the Western (tradition). Thus, that goddess is red (and passionate) (raktā) and is initiated into the Western Transmission (of the goddess Kubjikā)”.
