Plants for prosperity
According to the various ancient astrological volumes, if a person is born in Vishakha Nakshatra
he or she should plant a tree of Ram Acaica in his house to fetch peace and prosperity.
Indian astrology believes that every thing under the sun represents a certain planet. A person is required to know which planet is beneficial for him/her and then the need is to enhance the influence of that specific planet around him/her. As different plants also represent different planets and Nakshatras one can boost up one’s chance of betterment by planting of the suitable plant in house orchard.
‘Brahmma Vaivarta Purana’ an ancient volume says that planting a tree of coconut fetches an easy flow of money. Planting of a Mango tree in the Eastern direction of the house may bring prosperity. Persons, who are having problems in having a child, are suggested to sow a plant of lemon or jack- fruit in the Eastern part of the house. If one faces difficulties in finding real friends, one should plant a rose- apple (jaamun) tree in southern direction. Another ancient volume ‘Padma Purana’ says that one should plant a tree of Myrobalan (Aanwala) in house hold orchard to have a free and fair flow of positive and sacred energy. According to a common belief both of the Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxami have provided their special blessings to this plant.
Astrological beliefs says that one should plant the tree which represents the birth nakshatra (specific composition of stars) of one self to get the favour of stars.
Every nakshatra is represented by different plant or tree . A person born in a particular nakshatra is suggested to plant the tree of his/her birth nakshatra to enhance good fortune. For instance , Bharani nakshatra is represented by myrobalan, Ashwani by pomegranate, Punarvasu by bamboo tree, Rohini by rose – apple, while Pushya nakshatra is represented by the holy peaper tree.
A friend in need is a friend indeed. In this context plants are really true friends of mankind as they not only fetches good luck to the individuals but also donate whole of their existence to the benefit of human beings.
