    Kula-kaya is the immanent Presence of the Godhead mystically experienced as Pratyaksha-samarasya (direct merging in one Rasa). Then, Kula-kaya is Mahachakra of Kaulas, which is the embodiment of the Goddess. All Kaulas are united in Kula-kaya. Kula-kaya ritually is presented as Shrichakra (in both of its senses) and woman's body. It is formed by four Pithas (according to another tradition, one more is added, thus resulting in total five): Kamarupa, Purnagiri, Jalandhara and Oddiyana.

    I used to think that the Sri-Chakra is a map of the inner universe, but I guess you are saying something similar.

    Shrichakra has many levels of application. What U say is also right, that is Nigarbhartha meaning of it. And in this case it can be too identified with Kula-kaya.
