Kalika Purana (Abridged version)

Kalika Purana (Abridged version) 


Kalika Purana is one of the lesser known Puranas. One of the four canonical Puranas of Shakta canon, Kalika Purana is the only Purana compiled in praise of Goddess Kali, where She is identified as both Supreme Brahman as well as Primordial Shakti. The Purana holds great respect as a Tantra Shastra, and has esoteric meanings. Kalika Purana is divided into two parts. The first part is considered a Puranic Shastra as it narrates the story of Goddess Kali's incarnations while the second part is considered a Tantra Shastra, describing core Tantric phillosophy, worship manual for a number of Tantric deities and also Mantras of Goddesses. Unfortunately, till date Kalika Purana has not been made online. Here I present an abridged version of the summary of Kalika Purana. I am drafting translation of Kalika Purana and will post it very soon. Till then, relish the abridged version.
