Udghaṭitajñā (उद्घटितज्ञा) refers to “(understanding) a condensed statement”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, as the Lord said: “So it is, friends. The sphere of the Buddha is just like what you said. However, friends, their thoughts are dependently originated, and I see living beings who walks with desire and who stops without desire, who wears a dharma-robe being full of impurities and who puts on the robe without impurities, and who eats porridge out of greed and who stops it without appetite. O friends, the types of behavior of living beings are so diverse. Since there are living beings who strive for [the Buddha’s] words by understanding a condensed statement (udghaṭitajñā) or by understanding  a full, detailed explanations, the Tathāgata gives them the discourses of teaching the dharma, accordingly to each individual”.
