Gurudruha (गुरुद्रुह), a wicked thief and hunter, who was once caught in the forest on Śivarātri while hunting deer as night fell. Now following a familiar pattern, he climbs a bilva-tree and accidentally worships a liṅga situated below the tree by spilling water and knocking bilva-leaves on it four times. (See the Śiva-purāṇa: Śivarātri-māhātmya)
