In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Udyata (उद्यत) refers to “upraised” (hands), according to the Jayadrathayāmala verse 4.35.9-14.—Accordingly, “I see none who is her equal in the very powerful Vidyāpīṭha. She causes the women of the gods to melt (with passion). She is the deluding one even amongst the gods. One should worship her, Kṛśodarī, in the middle of (the Yoni which is) the lotus of the triangle. She is beautifully thin. She has one face and three eyes (that burn) like fire. She is fierce and holds a noose and goad and there are five arrows in her upraised hands (śaracāpa-kara-udyata). ‘Delusion’, ‘desiccation’, ‘melting’, ‘wetting’ and ‘arousal’—these are the five arrows she should hold in (her) hand. One should think about the powerful Nityā Kālī, the wealth of the universe (in this way)”.

Udyata (उद्यत) refers to “being engaged (in the activities of the devotees)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.18 (“Gaṇeśa crowned as the chief of Gaṇas”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] When Pārvatī became free from fury, Śiva and Pārvatī behaved as before. With a desire for the welfare of the worlds, the great deity relaxing in his own soul and engaged in the activities of the devotees (bhaktakārya-udyata) conferred different kinds of happiness. Both Viṣṇu and I took leave of Śiva and after paying homage to both Pārvatī and Śiva returned to our abodes. [...]”.

A bad birth is hard to be accomplished even in a dream for him whose judgment, which is extremely skilful at examination like a door-keeper, shines in the mind”.
