About : 

  • Because of indiscriminate felling of trees and consequent deforestation, tree planting holds a prominent place in the restoration of ecological balances and preservation of the natural beauty. Let us therefore remember Gautam Buddha‘s teachings during this ‘Tree Planting Festival’Forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for its sustenance and extends generously the products of its life activity; it affords protection to all beings, offering shade even to the woodcutter who is bent on destroying it.
