Tuṭi refers to the fifth of the eleven dances (patinoraṭal) as mentioned in the Kaṭalāṭukkāṭai which is a chapter of the Cilappatikāram: an ancient epic authored by Ilango Adigal representing an important piece of Tamil literature.—The eleven dances were (viz., Tuṭi) danced by Madavi in the Indra Vila (the festival celebrating the victory of Indra).

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: academia.edu: The Evidence for Somānanda's Pantheism

Tuṭi (तुटि) refers to an “instant” (i.e., a sudden excitement that occurs in an instant), according to Somānanda’s Śivadṛṣṭi 1.7-8.—Somānanda identifies an initial moment of will, aunmukhya or “eagerness,” that stirs the moment Śiva begins to desire to create experience in the form of phenomena appearing in his consciousness. This first stirring of will, this eagerness, is a sort of sudden excitement that occurs in an instant (tuṭi), and it initiates the process of creation. As such, it may be experienced in the first moment of an action as one can see it in the moment of tension in the hand about to be closed into a fist, and so on. Insofar as will (icchā) has two parts, an initial moment in the form of eagerness (aunmukhya), and a subsequent, fully formed manifestation of will (icchā), Somānanda considers it also to be a form of action (as Utpaladeva informs us), one that is performed entirely within the movement, as it were, of consciousness.
