Dear Mr. Spier,
Could it perhaps be a reference to Kṛṣṇānanda Āgamavāgīśa, the Tāntrika? See, e.g., Encountering Kālī, ed. McDermott and Kripal, p. 54.

Subject: [INDOLOGY] Name of kāli in ādyākālikāstotram
Dear list members,
In verse 3 of the ādyākālikāstotram (hundred names of Kali)
kṛpāmayī kṛpādhārā kṛpāpārā kṛpāgamā |
kṛśānuḥ kapilā kṛṣṇā kṛṣṇānandavivarddhinī || 3 ||
I've seen kṛṣṇānandavivarddhinī translated as "the one who increases the bliss of Krishna", but it seemed strange to me that the god Krishna would be mentioned in a hymn to Kali (or is it?). Are there other translations of kṛṣṇānandavivarddhinī that would make more sense in this context?
