Sasyasampad (सस्यसम्पद्) refers to an “abundance of harvest”, according to the 3rd-century Ratnagotravibhāga (Uttaratantra) verse 4.42-43.—“[...] it is said that [the mind of the Buddha in its activity] is like a cloud (megha). Just as, in the rainy season, the clouds discharge, without any effort, The multitudes of water on the earth, Causing abundance of harvest (sasyasampad);  In a similar manner, the Buddha Discharges the rain of the Highest Doctrine From the clouds of Compassion, with no searching thought, For [bringing] the crops of virtue among the living beings”.
