Plants and Nakshatra

Plants and Trees of Your Nakshatras Can Heal You.

The concept of adoption of a plant is been derived from ancient Vedic culture.

The Vedic astrology is based on the concept of Nakshatras (Constellations) and Rashis (as per moon signs).

There are in all 27 Nakshatras and every individual has a Nakshatra assigned to him/her depending on the date and time on which he/she is born (the tithi).

Every Nakshatra has a symbolic tree or plant that defines its connection with eternal nature.

In ancient Vedic culture there was a tradition that whenever a baby is born in someone’s home, that person was supposed to plant a tree of the same Nakshatra on which the baby was born.

The person was supposed to take care of the tree as his child because it was believed that the more good and healthy the tree will grow, it will prosper more health and happiness to the child.

If these trees have been assigned to the 27 nakshatras by the Vedic Rishis, than it will be worthwhile for us to know which tree belongs to our Janma Nakshatra (Birth Constellation) and to have some idea about its medicinal values or other applications.

So the presence of the complete set of 27 trees directly creates a healthy and sound physical, mental, psychological and spiritual beings; which is the ultimate and absolute bliss to oneself and to the Earth too!

May we all believe in astrology or not, we will definitely agree to one simple thing that this concept of plant adoption was one of the very smartly planned conservation strategies by our ancestors.

Today looking at our ‘selfish’ and ‘just consume’ attitude towards the whole-n-sole of our life – Mother Nature, we find it really necessary to rejuvenate and spread this concept of adopting at least one plant per person.

So this monsoon plant more and more trees and lets GO GREEN !!

Worship the tree associated with your nakshatra and get relieved of your troubles

The entire universe is an embodiment of five elements which are called the ‘Panchatatwas’.

The ‘Panchatatwas’ are namely earth, water, air, space, and fire.

Astrologers state, every Rashi that is zodiac sign is given the responsibility of taking care of the environment.

If you take a close look at the traditions, culture, and rituals that are followed in India, we see that all these practices are made to take care of nature in one way or the other.

Right from ancient times, trees have been held high in regard and are not less than any god or goddess.

As per Vedic astrology, planting and nurturing the tree that matches your Janma Nakshatra is an ideal way to get rid of ailments and diseases.

It is mentioned in Vedic scriptures, there are different kinds of trees connected to each of the nakshatras and when the native of the birth star grows and worships that particular plant, he/she will notice positive changes happening in their life.

So, here are some names of trees which are associated with particular nakshatras and the rituals to be followed:

  • The tree for Ashwini Nakshatra is Kuchla also called strychnine. It is said that if Ashwini Nakshatra people give water to this tree on a regular basis and go around it for 11 times then the natives will experience improvements and also they will see that their problems will start vanishing.
  • Indian gooseberry tree is associated with the star constellation Bharani. The natives of Bharani Nakshatra are advised to apply kumkum to this tree every day and offer rice. It would be beneficial if the Bharani Nakshatra person meditates for some time by sitting below this tree.
  • Babool is the tree related to Punarvasu Nakshatra. Astrologers advise the natives of this nakshatra to keep a small branch of this tree at home as it attracts positive energy.
  • People born under Magha Nakshatra must worship the Banyan tree. It is recommended to the natives to carry small parts of the roots in their pocket wherever they go. However, do not keep the roots close to you at night.
  • For the natives of Moola Nakshatra and Chitra Nakshatra, the Bel tree is regarded to be an auspicious one. These people can welcome happiness and harmony in their lives by watering the Bel tree and going around it. It is also said that leaves of this tree are sacred and must be offered to Lord Shiva.

Nakshatras and Trees

Every Nakshatra is symbolically associated with a tree or plant that depicts its very connection with the earth plane.

It is extremely auspicious to plant and nurture the tree associated to your Janma Nakshatra.

It often makes one of the best remedies to mitigate poor planetary positions in the birth chart.

Even today in many rural parts of India, people follow the long-standing custom of planting 27 nakshatra trees—one for each nakshatra of the family member.

This traditional method also plays a vital role in restoring or preserving the flora diversity on earth.

Why should we Worship Trees?

Worshipping a tree invokes a sense of inclusiveness in us.

To worship a tree is to worship nature; bowing to a tree also grants outstanding advantages to us.

We can plant saplings of the tree in the temple premises and visit quite often to nurture and care for the plant.

How to worship a tree?

We can offer whole Akshata (rice grains mixed with turmeric), Kumkum to the tree or to the root part to pay gratitude.

  • Offering water and turmeric would bring happiness and luck to the native who worships tree of their Janma Nakshatra.
  • Chanting hymns and practicing pranayama under the tree and performing meditation to expand consciousness are the best ways to connect with the tree of our Janma nakshatra.
  • Regularly watering, circling it 11 times, and touching it will grant all your wishes and remove all obstacles.
  • We can routinely circumambulate the tree in seven rounds, offer water to the tree after every circumambulation.
  • Fridays and Pournima are auspicious to worship Janma Nakshatra trees to make most blessings.
  • Offering sugar to the tree is also suggested as a remedy in many scriptures. This sugar is often consumed by insects and ants surrounding the tree.
  • In the case of nakshatras of trees with edible leaves like Purva Bhadrapada- Uttara Bhadrapada, Punarvasu, like mango, neem or bamboo, natives can consume a few twigs of leaves to welcome good fortune in their life.
  • Wearing flowers of your Janma nakshatra on your hair also makes us receptive of the tree’s blessings and many divine benefits.
  • Natives can also carry a small piece of bark of their nakshatra tree to bring a dash of luck into their lives.
