Luṭhat (लुठत्) means “rolling around on the ground”, 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, “[...] Having split apart the Meruliṅga and come forth, she moves mountains. She came forth within the heart, her radiant energy extremely intense and very hard to bear. Bhairava was pierced then by an intense descent of the energy (of grace). Penetrated by (that) divine energy, the god rolled around on the ground [i.e., luṭhatluṭhate]. In this way, when he regained consciousness, Bhairava felt embarrassed. Similarly, when the goddess with a crooked face regained consciousness, she too was embarrassed”.
