More thoughts on this thread.
Devi bhagavata Book 1, Chapter 6, has a description of how madhu-kaiTabhaoriginated. There it is clearly stated madhu-kaiTabha became powerful via upAsanaof the vAgbIja (aim). So the association of mahAkAli and vAgbIja here may be:mahAkali helps viShNu and brahmA overcome the inappropriate power that hasbeen acquired via vidyA of vAgbIja falling into wrong hands.
Possibly a similar meaning for the other two vidyA-s (bIja-s). In fact then the word vicce(cut) makes more sense.

Navaratri greetings. I browsed through the e-book on "beeja-mantrAtmaka-sapthasathi".
While I am certain that most of the content in the book is far too advanced for someone
like me. One thing that I found odd and may be you can voice your opinion on is:
The author has associated
vak-bhAva bIja with mahA kAli
and kAma bIja with mahA sarasvati.
Shouldn't this be the other way round?
kAma bIja relates to mahA kAli
vak-bhAva bIja relates to mahA sarasvati
My underlying assumption here is: The three bIja mantras in the nava varna mantra must be
explained in detail in the three charitras of durga saptashati (one bIja in each charitra).
Many people are asking me offline regarding the availability of a tAntrik work "beeja-mantrAtmaka-sapthasathi".
The e-book of the same published by Chawkhamba can be downloaded from the below link:
With warm regards,Sriram
