Trees play a vital role in helping mankind to receive oxygen from the atmosphere while they absorb the carbon dioxide exhaled by human beings. Hence, the ancients favored the growing of trees to control atmospheric pollution. But, nowadays, trees are cut down indiscriminately and pollution is on the increase.

Goal of 'Sai Tree Planting' Project:
The Service Coordinators of all Regions of the USA are planning to offer a "Sai Tree Planting Service" project this year at the Lotus Feet of our Dear Swami. Goal is to plant at least 95 trees this year in each of our Regions to commemorate our beloved Swami’s 95th Birthday. Each individual, family, or center are encouraged to identify suitable places for planting such as their own yard, indoor space, schools, places of worship or public parks to plant these Trees/Plants.
Chanting during planting:
It is recommended that a prayer be chanted at the time of the planting and at regular intervals afterwards like :
- Gayatri Mantra
- Sai Gayatri
- Multi-Faith Prayers or any other prayer dear to your heart
The heartfelt vibrations generated will be therapeutic not only to the growing plant/tree, but also to the surrounding environment.
Guidelines for planting:
To plant trees in the backyard or grow house plants, please follow guidance from following links:
The Lord declares that He is the Seed of all Beings. Watch a tree! The roots, the trunk, the branches, the twigs, the shoots, the leaves, the flowers, the fruits all look different in form, taste, hardness, and smell. They have different uses for the tree and for us. But all this manifold variety is produced, sustained, subsumed, and served by One Single SEED. And, each fruit contains the same SEED! He is the Seed, He is the Tree, He is the Fruit. Love is the Seed, Love is the Tree, Love is the Fruit.
