1) Uddhṛta (उद्धृत) means “assumed” (viz., “one that assumed an illusory form”), 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, as the Goddess Kumārī said to Ṛṣi Vyāsa said: “Vyāsa’s state is nothing (real). O Śaṃkara, (there is nothing) of mine (I can give) you. O Śaṃkara! (See) the illusory form of a Ṛṣi assumed [i.e., uddhṛta] (by you). Why do you take suffering (onto yourself by the observance of) vows, Kaula practice (caryā), austerity and the like? All this is the net of Māyā. [...]”.
2) Uddhṛta (उद्धृत) means “extracted”, according to the commentary on the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “These [a, ṛ, ga, ha] are the four seeds of the Ages and those of the sacred seats. Why have the (seeds of) the Ages and the sacred seats been extracted [i.e., uddhṛta] from the gahvara grid? It is said (in reply) that they are extracted for those who (practice inwardly) without outer ritual (nirācāra) and desire to arouse (the energy) of athe world and for their own worldly enjoyment. [...]”.

Uddhṛta (उद्धृत) refers to “extracted (juice)”, according to the Bhūśalyasūtrapātananimittavidhi section of Jagaddarpaṇa’s Ācāryakriyāsamuccaya, a text within Tantric Buddhism dealing with construction manual for monasteries etc.—Accordingly, “[...] Having praised [the cord] with the sounds of a bell, auspicious song, conch shell, and bamboo flute, the donor should offer guest water [to the cord] together with jewels, gold, and fragrant flowers, which are blooming and beautiful, and mixed with the juice extracted from the sprouts (pallava-uddhṛta) of the airandhrīkara”.
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.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Uddhṛta (उद्धृत) refers to “(being) sustained”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “That [cosmos] is not at all produced by anyone, not at all sustained (uddhṛta) by anyone, so also not destroyed by anyone. Nevertheless, that exists by itself without support in the atmosphere. That very same one, which is without a beginning and end, is accomplished by itself and imperishable, without a Supreme Being and excessively filled with objects beginning with the self”.
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.
