Indrakṛta (इन्द्रकृत) refers to “that which is made by a lord”, 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, “Now the Bhagavān was residing in the abode of Brahmā. [...] [There was] the Garuḍa Lord, the Great King, the one with golden wings, [...]. His head was bound with a crown and a fillet. He was decorated with golden ornaments. He had a firmly fixed glance of dreadful character and a seat made by a serpent lord (pannaga-indrakṛta-āsana). [...]”.
