Hinduism - Who Was Kamalakanta ?


Kamalakanta (d. 1820) was a Bengali poet, goddess Kali's follower (bhakta), and instructor and practitioner of tantra, a hidden, ritual-based religious practice.

The guru and erudite counsellor (pundit) of the monarch of Burdwan, a province northwest of modern-day Calcutta, whose capital is also called Burdwan, Kamalakanta spent the majority of his life.
