Saṃvardhita (संवर्धित) refers to “shooting forth” (of seeds), 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, [as the Bhagavān said to the great Nāga kings]: “Now I will teach the auspicious offering manual which can bring about any effect. [...] All flowers, fruits and crops will be well developed. They will be perfectly ripe and juicy. All seeds shoot forth (saṃvardhita) easily developed. All Kṛtyā-sorcery and Kākhordas will perish. [...]”.
