Udīrayantī (उदीरयन्ती) (Cf. Udīrayat) refers to “sounding (a cry)”, according to the Vajratuṇḍasamayakalparāja, an ancient Buddhist ritual manual on agriculture from the 5th-century (or earlier), containing various instructions for the Sangha to provide agriculture-related services to laypeople including rain-making, weather control and crop protection.—Accordingly, [after the Bhagavān reached the lotus-lake near Aḍakavatī], “Then Vairambhaka, a Yakṣa leader belonging to the retinue of Māra, uttered a voice and sounded (udīrayat) a cry in the Triple Thousand Great Thousand Universe, ‘Great dangers have arisen in the world, there is the conflagration of the aeon in seven days. There is nothing here that will not burn completely from the highest point of the universe to Avīci’”.
