Gurutalpaga (गुरुतल्पग) refers to a “one who sleeps in the teacher’s bed (with his wife)”, 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 the Goddess said to Bhairava: “[...] O god, the (liberated) skyfaring state arises by worshipping (that one reality whose) body is without stain. You are all things and, ever free, you are not bound by Karma. The murderer of Brahmins, women and cows, the thief, one who sleeps in the teacher’s bed (with his wife) [i.e., gurutalpaga] and those other extremely cruel people who commit very terrible sins, as many as a heap as great as Meru in this ocean of fettered existence, are free from all sins by just remembering you”.
