Agamya (अगम्य) refers to “one not have relations with”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as Śaṃkara said to Bhagavat (Viṣṇu): “I am disfigured, distraught and foolish, and am not one whom you should have relations with (agamya) and (so) I do not ask you anything. And I do not ever want knowledge of the Command from you. Nonetheless, even though I have become distraught (vikala) in the Middle Country, I have come recalling to mind that scalpel of divine knowledge. [...]”.
