Uḍḍīśa (उड्डीश) is the name of an Āgama or Tantra mentioned in the Kakṣapuṭatantra  verse 1.5-7.—“At a previous time, when Pārvatī asked him, Śaṅkara told of the attainments of vidyā in the wide worldly life, in various ways. I observed each teaching taught also by the troops of Gods, Siddhas (those who have attained supernatural power), Munis (saints), Deśikas (spiritual teachers), and Sādhakas (tantric practicioners). They are [, for example]: Uḍḍīśa... I shall carefully extract all the above-mentioned āgamas, which are transmitted from mouth to mouth, like butter extracted from coagulated milk”.

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Uḍḍīśa (उड्डीश) (or Oḍḍīśa) is the name of a Siddha, according to Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] Then content and profound, Kujeśvarī who is endowed with the quality of discernment and whose creation (takes place) by many means said this: “As (I) have flown up (oḍḍitā) (here) within Oḍḍīśa, therefore this (place will be known) as Oḍḍiyānaka”.

According to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā: “This is (called) Uḍḍiyāna because (the goddess) flew up by means of it within Uḍḍīśa”. Note: Sanderson translates the entire line as: “This is (called) Uḍḍiyāna because the (Siddha) Uḍḍīśa ascended (here) into the sky”. [...] The commentary does indeed appear to say that it is Uḍḍīśa who is ascending, not the goddess. However, this is probably not so, we could just as well emend the first word to uḍḍīśe. This would make more sense.
