Being around trees is one of the ways to increase prana or vital energy. In olden days, teachers used to impart education to their students under a tree. When I was growing up, I had the good fortune of being around the auspicious ashwattha or peepal tree in my grandmother’s front yard where she passed on many Ayurvedic and wellness tips and tricks. We recited vedic mantras and chants here and many stories from the ancient texts and other secrets unfolded in this sacred space. I have long been fascinated with trees which also explains the logo of this site.
