Kulālikāmnāya (कुलालिकाम्नाय) refers to the “Tradition of the Potter Girl”.—Presiding over spheres of manifestation and states of being, the goddess’s forms are low caste and tribal. Within the Beginningless Purity, she is Mātaṅgī, the impure Sweeper. As Pulindikā, the illiterate tribal girl, she is omniscient. She is the wild, untouchable tribal Śavarī in the state of union (yoga) and as Campakā, the ‘small’ patron goddess of the city of Campa, she is called ‘accomplished’. According to the Tradition of the Potter Girl (kulālikāmnāya), these four are her forms in the four yogic states that cover the expanse of the deity’s experience in which the liberated participate.
