“an intelligent farmer, the Buddha pointed out, knows that a good harvest can be reaped only under certain necessary conditions. first, he must have an intelligent understand of different types of soil and of soil conditions…secondly, he must also have a good knowledge of different types of seeds….thirdly, a skillful farmer first ploughs the field and properly irrigates it before sowing the seed or planting the saplings.
those who tell peasants that only magic, mantras and divine blessings are the real enabling-powers behind a good harvest prevent the peasants from realizing the truth of their own creative powers and keep them in dependence on the ministrations of those who do not work, but reap the ‘fruit of their toil’. the mantras of wizard-craft and priest-craft are made to appear more powerful than the technology of the real workers.
by making people critically aware of their taken for granted creative powers, the Buddha reminded them that they could act together to transform themselves and their life-conditions. the Buddha was a pedagogue of the people. he did not mystify, he conscientised.”
