Prajvalita (प्रज्वलित) refers to the “shining forth (of rays)”, 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 hostile Nāgas released winds, thunderbolts, etc.] “Then the Bhagavān entered the concentration called the Expanded Garuḍa Glance, [also] called the Miracle of the Garland of Enveloping Flame. Immediately after he had entered the concentration, two rays shone forth. Merely upon shining forth (saha-prajvalita-mātra), the bodies of all Nāgas flamed up”.
