Sarvamaṅgalakāriṇī (सर्वमङ्गलकारिणी) refers to one of ten Kula Goddesses (kuleśvarī), according to the Kāmasiddhi-stuti (also Vāmakeśvarī-stuti) and the Vāmakeśvaratantra (also known as Nityāṣoḍaśikārṇava).—[...] The next four verses, 17–20 [of the Kāmasiddhistuti], respectively praise the set of ten Kula goddesses (kuleśvarī). The list can be completed with the help of the Vāmakeśvaratantra (1.169-171), but these goddesses [i.e., Sarvamaṅgalakāriṇī] are here simply called śaktis.
