Gurupaṅkti (गुरुपङ्क्ति) refers to the “line of teachers”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Linked to the Siddhakrama (i.e. the vowels) and possessing the line of teachers (gurupaṅkti), one should deposit this group of four by means of the vision of knowledge. This is the Kulākula body, supreme and common to all things. It is said to be the body of the parts (padadeha) of the planes (pada) of the enjoyment of the parts”.
