Kapalika a sect of Hindus, who formerly sacrificed human victims to Kali and other hideous monster gods. The devotee of this sect is thus described, "His body is smeared with ashes from a funeral pile, around his neck hangs a string of human skulls, his forehead is streaked with a black line, his hair is woven into the matted braid, his loins are clothed with a tiger's skin, a hollow skull is in his left hand for a cup, and in his right he carries a bell, which he rings incessantly, exclaiming aloud, 'Ho! Sambhu Bhairava Ho! lord of Jali.'"
