Hinduism, Sanatan Dharma is timeless, it has no beginning or end. It is eternal, the scripts of Hinduism reflect the numerical patterns (पॅरो 10 raise to 400000000000000000 to अनंत infinity from शून्य) which is beyond calculus capacity of present super computers. The calculations were done by Rishis with the blessings of natural resources; tree, mother cow and prakriti. It is not possible to exist without the blessings of Janani.
Oldest, largest, living, eternity, irreplaceable, mother, manifestation, birth and soul – these are some terms which were gifted to the world by Hinduism. These terms are not mere words but the manifestation of all such terms exists in this very earth where we all reside. Kalpavriksha Parijaat trees are longest, largest and oldest living trees in the world. Its origin goes back to millions of years as described in Purans of Sanatan Dharma.
The cyclic process and energy obtained to sustain and maintain this earth is derived from Pakriti and tree is one of the manifestations of the Pakriti. The decline of this manifestation is based on the Karmic principles of Yug; Satyug, Tretayug, Dwaparyug and Kaliyug.
Satyug is blessed with natural vegetation wherein no one has to plant trees and it grows naturally to give fruits and edible materials to the Satyug earthlings. Today’s forestation is monumental proof of Satyugi blessings.
The decline happens in Tretayug wherein the plantation need support of the manpower and hardships of farmer. Farming is considered as the pious work and from kings to common people everyone is personally involved to protect mother earth.
In Dwaparyug, there is huge rise of demonic plantations (which are replica of fruit bearing trees and plant but in reality give poisonous fruits and seeds). Farming is dedicated to selective lot of people.
In Kaliyug, farming becomes business and it declines to an extreme level, trees and plants are genetically cultivated ruining their natural habitation. By the end of 1 lac years of Kaliyug, all the existing plants will die and it will be replaced by genetically engineered trees which will have shorter life spans. This will also result in massive decline of animals.
Natural vegetation will exist in very selective places protected by sages. At the end of Kaliyug, there will be almost no vegetation. And the culmination of Kaliyug will make way for Satyug. At the start of Satyug, Prakriti mata will bless earth again with natural vegetation and all plants will emerge from the soil unconditionally without support of manned resources. The cycle of growth to end of vegetation happen following principles of Yug laid by Prakriti mata.

Kalpavriksha (Kalpataru or Kalpadruma)
Kalpavriksha is the source of divine trees; Parijat, Coconut, Sahtoot, Banyan, Madhuka, Babul, Khejdi, and Indian butter. The presence of these trees on earth is manifestation of Kalpavriksha which is divine tree of heaven.
In manthan of Samudra, Kalpavriksha, source of all divine trees, emerged from the primal waters along with mother of all cows, Kamadhenu (Kaamdhenu or कामधेनु गाय). Kalpavriksha and Kamadhenu fulfill wishes of all earthlings and heavenly kinds. There are five Kalpavrikshas in Devlok – Mandana, Parijata, Santana, Kalpavriksha and Harichandana all of which fulfill various wishes.
Kalpavriksha and Kaamdhenu are present in different forms implicit for the various Loks. In Mrityulok, they are present in the mortal form but their regeneration is NEVER stopped and is eternal. Even at the end of the Kaliyug at least one form of Kalpavriksha tree or Kaamdhenu cow will be present to resurrect Satyug.
Kalpavriksha is planted at Mount Meru peak in the middle of five paradise gardens of king of Gods, Indra. It is on account of these wish-granting trees that the Asurs waged a perpetual war with the Devtas as the heavenly gods who exclusively benefited freely from the “divine flowers and fruits” from the Kalpavriksha, whereas the demigods lived comparatively in penury at the lower part of its “trunk and roots”. The Parijat is often identified with its terrestrial counterpart, the Indian coral tree , but is most often depicted as a Champak tree. It is described as having roots made of gold, a silver midriff, lapislazuli boughs, coral leaves, pearl flower, gemstone buds, and diamond fruit. The birth of Ashokasundari, the daughter of Shiva and Parvati, is attributed to the Kalpavriksha tree. Another daughter Aranyani was also gifted to Kalpavriksha for safekeeping. Later during war, Shiva and Parvati after discussions while parting with their daughter Aranyani gave her away to the divine Kalpavriksha for safe keeping when the demon Andhakasur waged attack. Parvati requested Kalpavriksha to bring up her daughter with “safety, wisdom, health and happiness,” and to make her Vana Devi, the protector of forests.
In poetic reference, Kalpavriksha is compared to Lakshmi Mata as her sister emerging from the sea. She is born to the Naga King Kumud, the fifth descendant of Takshak, along with sister Kumudavati. She emerged from the bed of the Sarayu River challenging Kusa considered an incarnation of Vishnu just in the disguise as a son.
Kalpavriksha and Kaamdhenu appear and disappear according to the cyclic process of manifestation and destruction.
Parijat (Parijaat) Proof of Divinity
Parijat tree of Kintur is a protected tree situated in Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh, India. According to the historical account of Harivansh Puraan the Parijaat Tree is a Kalpavriksha, or wish bearing tree, which, apart from this tree, is only found in heaven. Newly-weds visit the tree for blessings, and every Tuesday a fair is held where local people worship the tree.
Some ancient temples and their destructed forms (dismantled by terrorist mughals) is seen all around the places nearby Kintur Kalpavriksha.
Purans have different citings relative to existence of Kalpavriksha Parijat (from various Holy Hindu texts – Bhagavata Puran, Vishnu Puran and Mahabharat; Kunti ashes, Krishna, Arjun, Balram and other deities. Kalpavriskha appear in different forms for different occasions as discussed before, in heaven dry leaves of Kapavriksha (Parijat) turn into gold, it takes thousands of earth years to turn dry in heaven.
- Parijat formed on the ashes of Kunti mata of Pandavs.
- Narad Rishi gave Parijaat flower to Krishna, Bhagwan gave it to his queen Rukmini.
- Further on, Krishna’s queen Satyabhama demanded the tree be planted in the backyard of her palace. It so happened that in spite of having the tree in her backyard, the flowers used to fall in the adjacent backyard of the other queen Rukmini, who was favorite of Bhagwan Krishna, because of her superior devotion and humility. Krishna had purposely taken His wife Satyabhama with Him so that she could collect the Parijaat with her own hand. But the demigods, lokvashis of the heavenly planets, including Indra, were very irritated.
- Parijaat appeared during Samudra manthan (Churning of the Milky Ocean).
- The gem known as Kaustubh appeared during the churning of the ocean of milk, Bhagwan Vishnu took the gem and placed it on His chest. Thereafter, a Parijaat flower and the Apsaras, the most beautiful women in the universe appeared, who took formation to keep Rakshas, Rishis engaged in materialistic circles and save Demigods from adversaries attack.
- Balaram, an avatar of Sheshnag who is keeping earth stable and also elder brother of Krishna said, “Consider the exalted position of the Yaduvanshi. They have forcibly used both the assembly house and the Parijat tree of the heavenly planets, and still you think that they cannot order you (Kurus)”.
- Arjun brought Parijat tree from heavens and planted on earth, Kunti used to offer and crown Bhagwan Shiv with its flowers.
- As the Parijaat tree came down to this planet, the invisible beings or drones, bees migrated to this earth in search of the fragrance of flower and its divine nectar.
Ravan, His Descendants and Parijaat Tree
Blessings of Parijat tree also made demons seek her refuge. Though the demonic behavior of Rakshas never helped them in obtaining divine blessings from the tree. Morality of the pious beings and selfless bhakti towards Bhagwan Vishnu fulfill the wishes of reaching Parijaat tree. It could also be due to bhakti of previous birth or current form.
Ravan was mahagyani and had knowledge of Shastras. Rishis helped Rakshas king Ravan to plant Parijaat trees all around Shankdweep (Africa). The saplings were sowed from the branches of immortal trees of India (Bharatvarsh) and therefore developed variant characters due to intervention of negative energy.
The trees of Shankdweep therefore lack effectiveness. Visually also trees are different from the original Parijat trees, and are known as Baobab tree. Parijat tree is NOT Baobab tree as wrongly populated by some botanists. Deep analysis reveal that both plants are different. Likewise, whatever trees are seen in the botanical gardens are variants and not original Parijaat tree.
Parijat tree was bought to earth by divine beings, Baobab was planted by denizens of Ravan. Baobab is not even proper replica of heaven tree and lacks grandeur, spiritual and medicinal properties. Misdeeds and tyranny towards common people and Rishis by other Rakshas and sewaks of Shankdweep resulted in decimation of its strength and bought drought across various places and the effectiveness of Baobab tree further lost its positive vibrance which had some relevance when it was planted by the Rishis. Even by today’s scientific standards, similar tree cannot be grown by planting its branch, it does not provide seeds or fruits. It only fulfills wishes of the bhakts. It produces scented Parijat flower. It produces on its own off-shooting branches and grows big, stronger as centuries pass. Normal trees lifespan is from few years to couple of hundred years while Parijat tree is immortal, it never dies, it vanishes and re-appears in different place. Only haribhakti assures presence of Praijaat tree to bestow blessings on the devotees of Bhagwan Krishna.
