Divyarūpadhara (दिव्यरूपधर) refers to “one who bears a divine form” and is used to describe Ardhanarīśvara, 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 Bhadrakālī said to Śrīkaṇṭha: “[...] (You are) he, the Siddha who has been pierced (by the power of the Command) and, made of universal bliss, is accompanied by Yogeśvarī. He is Śaṃkara’s lord; supreme, he has five faces, three eyes, holds a spear and, adorned with matted hair and crown, (his) divine body is covered with ashes. He is the pervasive lord Ardhanarīśvara. Beautiful he is, stainless as pure crystal. (He is) the Lord (īśvara), supreme Śambhu, who bears a divine form [i.e., divyarūpadhara] and is auspicious. O Mahādeva, the three-eyed one, who, self-generated, is such as was repeatedly praised with greatly divine and mental hymns”.
