Is it auspicious to have Peepal Tree at Home? (Bodhi Tree)

Is it auspicious to have Peepal tree (Bodhi) at Home? Can you please explain it? To this doubt raised by a devotee in the Satsang, Sri Sri Ravishankar Guruji of Art of Living giving clarification in his own words….

Yes, it is very good and very auspicious. Having a Bodhi tree in front of your home is like having God himself standing there.

This is what Lord Krishna says, ‘Among the tree, I am Ashvattha’, (Peepal or Bodhi tree).

The Bodhi tree is so significant because all 24 hours a day, it gives out only oxygen. So it is very good to have this tree in front of your home.

There are people who say that it is not very good to have a Tamarind tree in front of the house. I don’t know what vibration it has, but this is what is said.
Now if there is a Tamarind tree in front of your home, I would say, don’t cut it down, just plant something else around it.

    Lord Krsihna likes Peepal tree alot. In the Bhagavad Gita, he says: “Among trees, I am the ashvattha.”

    Some believe that the tree houses the Trimurti, the roots being Brahma, the trunk Vishnu and the leaves Shiva.
    All the gods are present in Peepal Tree. So praying a peepal tree is equal to praying the Trimurti’s.

    In the Upanishads, the fruit of the peepal is used as an example to explain the difference between the body and the soul: the body is like the fruit which, being outside, feels and enjoys things, while the soul is like the seed, which is inside and therefore witnesses things.

  6. Alekhya says:

    Peepal Tree’s dried sticks are used in yagas as it is acceptable by all gods and godesses.

    Thats why every hommam or vratam are made only with the dried sticks of peepal Tree. Eg: Ganapathi Hommam

  7. Swetha says:

    Its root has the power to penetrate even rocks and it can be seen some odd trees on top of rock hills, whereas other tree has no or less power to penetrate.

    This is the only tree that emits oxygen even in night whereas other trees emit oxygen only at day time by photosynthesis.

  8. Srikanth says:

    With the above said legend facts the peepal tree has more significance.
    Its juice has an enzyme the stimulates child bearing capacity. The enzyme said to contain also in elephant’s trunk water, octopus’s saliva etc.
    So people go around the tree for want of a child, by aspiration of the air emanated by the tree.
