Udya (उद्य) refers to “lifting (one’s weapon)” (in battle), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.9 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with the Gods: “[...] Seeing Indra thus insulted, the powerful lord Viṣṇu lifted (udya) his discus and hit Tāraka. Hit by the discus he fell on the ground. Getting up again, the lord of the Asuras hit Viṣṇu with his spear. On being hit by the spear Viṣṇu fell on the ground. There was a great uproar. The gods lamented much. [...]”.

In Jainism

General definition (in Jainism)

Source: Shodhganga: An Analytical Study of Yogadrstisamyccaya of Acarya Haribhadrasuri

Udya (उद्य) refers to the “rise (of meritorious deeds)”.—[While explaining dhyāna (meditation) as part of the Eight yogadṛṣṭis].—Haribhadrasūri says that the happiness, which one gets as result of meritorious deeds (puṇya) is also of the nature of pain. It is so-called happiness. The real happiness is that which is obtained by practicing meditation. The happiness, which is obtained by performing meritorious deeds, is conditional. It is dependent upon the rise (udya) of corresponding meritorious deeds. Since such happiness is obtained by depending upon that which is non-self, it is of the nature of pain. Only that happiness is real which is gained by the soul itself through destroying karmans.

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.
