Sudīpta (सुदीप्त) is the name of a deity who was imparted with the knowledge of the Cintyāgama by Sadāśiva through parasambandha, according to the pratisaṃhitā theory of Āgama origin and relationship (sambandha). The cintya-āgama, being part of the ten Śivabhedāgamas, refers to one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgamas: a classification of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas. The Śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu.
Sudīpta in turn transmitted the Cintyāgama (through mahānsambandha) to Gopati, who then transmitted it to Ambikā who then, through divya-sambandha, transmitted it to the Devas who, through divyādivya-sambandha, transmitted it to the Ṛṣis who finally, through adivya-sambandha, revealed the Cintyāgama to human beings (Manuṣya). (also see Anantaśambhu’s commentary on the Siddhāntasārāvali of Trilocanaśivācārya)

Sudīptā (सुदीप्ता) refers to “she who is well-energized”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “The goddess (Kubjikā, as the Vidyā) of thirty-two (syllables) who is Supreme Śiva’s energy, is Kaulinī (who possesses an) adamantine body (vajradehā). She has come down [i.e., avatīrṇā] along the Path of Meru and is the five sacred seats (that is, the Five Praṇavas) at the beginning and end (of her Vidyā), and the best of the gods bow to her. In the division (she is) the New and the Full Moon (amā and pūrṇā) and is endowed with the parts (pada) and instruments (karaṇa) (of the Vidyā). She is the sixteen-fold Command and is well energized (sudīptā) by the seven Peak (Syllables). (She is) Nityā, who quells the fear of phenomenal existence. O mistress (svāminī)! Tell (me) the Vidyā”.

Sudīpta (सुदीप्त) is the name of a Mahoraga mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism. The teachings in this text originate from Mañjuśrī and were taught to and by Buddha Śākyamuni in the presence of a large audience (including Sudīpta).
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
