Kuṭikā (कुटिका) is the name of a Ḍākinī who, together with the Vīra (hero) named Kuṭika forms one of the 36 pairs situated in the Medinīcakra, according to the 10th century Ḍākārṇava chapter 15. Accordingly, the medinīcakra refers to one of the three divisions of the dharma-puṭa (‘dharma layer’), situated in the Herukamaṇḍala. The 36 pairs of Ḍākinīs [viz., Kuṭikā] and Vīras are yellow in color; the shapes of their faces are in accordance with their names; they have four arms; they hold a skull bowl, a skull staff, a small drum, and a knife.

Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.

Kuṭika (कुटिक) [?] (in Chinese: Kieou-tche-kia) is the name of an ancient kingdom associated with Jyeṣṭhā or Jyeṣṭhānakṣatra, as mentioned in chapter 18 of the Candragarbha: the 55th section of the Mahāsaṃnipāta-sūtra, a large compilation of Sūtras (texts) in Mahāyāna Buddhism partly available in Sanskrit, Tibetan and Chinese.—Chapter 18 deals with geographical astrology and, in conversation with Brahmarāja and others, Buddha explains how he entrusts the Nakṣatras [e.g., Jyeṣṭhā] with a group of kingdoms [e.g., Kuṭika] for the sake of protection and prosperity.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings).

General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Kuṭikā (कुटिका) is the name of a weapon, according to chapter 1.3 [ādīśvara-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.—Accordingly, “[...] whirling in his hands a thunderbolt like a powerful kuṭikā for the sport of drawing here the Śrīs; with the heavens filled with cries of ‘Hail! Hail!’ from a throng of bards, powerful Bāhubali went to the grove purified by the Master’s feet”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
