Trees are of high significance in many of the world's mythologies and religions, and have explained a deep and sacred meanings throughout the ages.
Human beings, observing the growth and death of trees, and the annual death and revival of their foliage, have often seen them as powerful symbols of growth, death and rebirth. The trees, which stay green in all the 3 seasons except Winter are sometimes considered symbols of the eternal, immortality or fertility. The image of the Tree of life or world tree occurs in many mythologies
The tradition of worshipping 'sacred' trees is prevalent among the people following Hinduism, since ages. Rig Veda and Atharva Veda stipulate that trees should be worshipped, for their inevitable role in human life. Banyan is considered one among the sacred trees. In the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is sometimes depicted sitting in silence, under the banyan tree, with the saints sitting at His feet. With its seemingly unending expansion, the banyan tree symbolizes eternal life. In Hindu culture, the tree is often called 'kalpavruksha', a Sanskrit word, which means 'a divine tree that fulfills wishes'. Married Hindu women worship the banyan tree to lead a long and happy married life.
Kalpavriksha or Kalpataru is a wish-fulfilling divine tree in Hindu mythology. The Kalpavriksha originated during the Samudra manthan or "churning of the ocean of milk". Sage Durvasa and Adi Shankaracharya meditated under the Kalpavriksha. The birth of Ashokasundari, the daughter of Shiva and the Godess Parvati, is attributed to the Kalpavriksha tree. Another daughter Aranyani was also gifted to Kalpavriksha for safekeeping
The Banyan tree is one of the most venerated trees in India. In Hindu mythology, the tree is called Kalpavriksha, the tree that provides fulfillment of wishes and other material gains. It symbolizes Trimurti - Lord Vishnu is believed to be the bark, Lord Brahma the roots, and Lord Shiva the branches. The Banyan tree is mentioned in many scriptures as a tree of immortality. In iconography, Shiva is visualized as Dakshinamurti, he who faces the south and sits under the Banyan tree. The Peepal tree is another highly significant tree in Hinduism. It is also called the Sacred Fig or the Bodhi Tree. It was a peepal tree under which Buddha had meditated and gained enlightenment. It is considered the king of the trees in Hinduism and is obviously very important in Buddhism too.
The Ashoka tree is a small evergreen rain-forest tree that has beautiful and fragrant red and yellow flowers. It is considered to be a sacred tree in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. The tree used to be a centre piece in every palatial garden in India. In Ramayana it is said that, Seeta devi sat under a Ashoka tree.
