Uḍḍitā (उड्डिता) (or Oḍḍitā) means having “flown up”, according to Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accoridngly, “[...] The goddess [i..e, Kujeśvarī] was satisfied by them (that is, the goddess [i.e., Raktā] there and her attendants) and by many ways and means (nayopāya). 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’.”.

The [Śrīmatottara] simply says that this is “where the Divine Command has flown up (oḍḍitā)”. The goddess flies up into the Wheel of the Sky-faring goddesses at the summit of existence. From there she will descend, as does her consort and then their spiritual offspring, to spread the teachings. The [Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā] expands the last line into the following explanation: “O fair-hipped lady, she sports there, (her) body consisting of the fifty letters. She abides constantly flying up (uḍḍitā) (as an aspect) of the totality of Speech consisting of the Subtle One (sūkṣma) and the other (levels of Speech). As (she) has flown up (uḍḍitā) within Uḍḍīśa, therefore this [place will be known] as Uḍḍiyānaka. It is the repose of the totality of Speech. Without it there is no hearing”.
