Kalikapurane Murtivinirdesah

The Kalikapurane Murtivinirdesah is the ninth volume in the series of the kalamulasastra project. It is a collection of around 550 lines from the Kalika Purana. These verses include a bodily description of a variety of gods, goddesses, and demi-gods, as well as other beings. Some of them are just abstract ideas, while others are embodied as sculptures made of stone and metal.

The Kalika Purana is a significant upa-purana that has been cited as an authoritative source by the smrti digest authors (nibandhakaras) from almost every region of India. The Kalika Purana is a text that was created in ancient Assam (Kamarupa) in the late ninth or early tenth century A.D. Its purpose was to exalt the mother goddess Kamakhya and to offer a ceremonial system for worshipping her. The Kalika Purana focuses mostly on describing the many incarnations of the goddess, along with providing specifics of their iconography, as well as their horses and weapons. Additionally, it discusses the representations of other gods and goddesses that were housed in Kamarupa. In order to provide a comprehensive picture, all of the verses that deal with the gods and are spread out among the many chapters of the Kalika Purana have been collated according to the gods. The Sanskrit verses are presented with an accurate translation of those verses into English.
