Posted by Vishva News Reporter on June 7, 2005
The second largest Banyan Tree in the world grows on the
Edison Estate of Thomas Edison Winter Home and Museum in Fort Myers,
Florida, USA. This Banyan Tree - Ficus benghalensis - is the second
largest of its kind in the world. It is 400 FEET around the base of this
tree! This tree is botanically famous for sending down prop roots to support
its wide-spreading branches, and the result is a single tree that looks more
like a grove of trees. The only bigger one in the world grows near Calcutta,
India, and this is one is monstrous indeed; the one tree covers more than 40
ACRES by itself! Banyan trees are closely related to common Rubber Trees, or
Rubber Plants, that you may have in your living room right now

In today's jet age when one hears of things like people
praying to a banyan tree, it is believed as superstition.
But to the villagers of Etaunja, some 40 kilometres from Lucknow, things
certainly are different. The residents of this village have been praying to
a 250-year-old banyan tree for generations. They believe that whosoever
comes and prays here, gets his or her wish fulfilled. People suffering from
all kinds of trouble or problem, even childless couples come and pray here,
say the villagers. And if that is not all, they have also built a small
temple near the tree. The tree is spread over an area of 72,000 square feet
between mango trees.
"Whoever comes here Harbans baba blesses them and fulfils all their wish.
Everybody believes in this. People come and pray here", said Raghuram, a
There is also a belief among people that nobody can cut this tree. Once a
man tried to cut it but he died. So people are even more afraid of it.
Villagers however, say that praying the tree is not superstition and cannot
be termed so, as Banyan tree has its own significance in Hindu mythology.
"Nobody says that it is superstitious. When people who are highly educated
come here they say that praying to a banyan tree is mere superstition. But
if people sit here and observe they will come to know that there is nothing
superstitious about this tree. Banyan tree has its own place in the Hindu
mythology", said Sumitra Devi, another local.
The Indian fig tree or Ficus bengalensis, is a tree whose branches root
themselves like new trees over a large area. The roots then give rise to
more trunks and branches. Because of this characteristic and its longevity,
this tree is considered immortal and is an integral part of the myths and
legends of India.
Even today, the banyan tree is the focal point of village life and the
village council or the panchayat, meets under the shade of this tree. (ANI)

BANYAN TREE IN CREATION
(from veDik texts)
Prior to the start of creation cylce of
4.32 billion years called klp in vEDik
time reference, Creator bRH`m
manifests HIMSELF in the form of a child called
This child is seen resting on a leaf of banyan
tree on the surface of the deluge which empowered all the
creations of the previous creation cylce to be absorbed back into
pRjaapti bRHmaa. Why the leaf of
siD`DHARth GOUtm, who is known as
BuDH`DH BHgvaan and ninth
viSHANu-DEv, roamed in search of the understanding of
sorrow and suffering in this sNsaar (worldly life of birth-death cycles).
At gyaa, a village on the banks
of the river nirnjN, he sat in
smaaDHi (mediation on Creator bRH`m)
under a banyan tree for 49 days.
He performed this smaaDHi and attained enlightenment there, and became
known as the buDH`DH. The spot
began to be referred to as the throne of wisdom, and the
banyan tree is now known as the
eternal wisdom tree, the aKSHy bODHivRUKSH.
raamaayAN, in the fifty-third chapter in the
aayoDH` KHND: On the first day of
SHRii raam's exile to 14-year
vnvaas (stay in the
forest) demanded by his step-mother
kEEkEyi-raaANi, it is evening.
SHRii raam, his wife
sitaa-DEvii and his brother
lKSHmAN are resting for the night under a
n`ygRODH tree ( a banyan tree), in
the jungle, on their way to BHrDvaaj aaSHRm
at pRyaag. The two brothers had
hunted earlier during the day, killing four kinds of deer, and at sunset
have sought whatever comforts the banyan tree
could offer for the night. After finishing their
sNDH`yaa (one of the 3 daily worships at dawn,
mid-afternoon and evening), SRii raam
reminds his brother lKSHmAN
that it is his first night alone, without his wife
sumNTRaa, away from
aYODH`yaa. And then, he tells him
he should not worry about that because all the happening was due to
himself. Why was SRii raam telling
his brother not to worry about anything when raam
knew that their father would be dead simply because
raam followed rules and regulations of
DHARm in the relation between a mother and a son?
