Sugopya (सुगोप्य) (Cf. Gopya) refers to “that which must be kept well hidden”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly: “Kuleśvarī, the Wish-granting Gem is in the middle between the imperishable and the perishable. [...] Born in the house of Himavat, having hidden (herself), she went to the Western (House). The repeated return of one who has gone is Maheśvarī who is (the divine) will. Above the Moon and the Sun, she is (the energy) of the lord who destroys fettered existence. She is the Moonlight (of the New Moon) that shines (darkly) in the End of the Twelve, (her colour) like blue collyrium. She is visible in (this) Age of Strife as the will of the Kula of the vitality of Kaula practic. The destruction of the three worlds, which must be kept well hidden [i.e., sugopya], has been revealed”.
