in a previous post, it was stated that in may religiions, the banyan tree is a sacred tree. In many cultures, a man or a woman sits in silence under the banyan tree.
In Sanskrit, the banyan tree is so sacred that it is called Vat Vriksha.
And in the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna says: “Of all the trees, I am the Banyan tree, and of the sages among the demigods, I am Narada.”
In my post, I say that it is better to think of the banyan tree as sacred rather than as a strangling tree.
