Vat Savitri fast is on 10th June, women keep fast for the longevity of husband and children, banyan is worshipped
Gwalior Vat Savitri Vrat: Gwalior. New Zealand Representative. We are all witnesses to the havoc caused by the second wave of corona virus. Corona has not only taught us to respect natural oxygen, it has also given a stern warning for environmental protection that if we do not improve even now, we may get to see even more frightening scenes in the future. We have seen that the free oxygen is not appreciated at all. Thousands of people had to sell their homes, houses, jewellery, vehicles and other movable and immovable property to get that oxygen in the cylinder and save the lives of their loved ones.
It is worth noting that in Sanatan Dharma, worshiping the banyan tree (banyan) is considered to have special significance. On June 10, on the day of Vat Savitri fast, women will also do special worship of the banyan tree. During this, she will wish for her husband and children as long as Bargat. Like Bargat, the family will be happy, prosperous and prosperous. Banyan is also considered sacred in Buddhism. Experts believe that the banyan provides five times more oxygen than other trees of the same size.
One tree, many virtues
Banyan gives maximum oxygen. Gives oxygen even at night.
Banyan provides maximum shade and coolness.
If the banyan gets a better place, then it lives for 500 years.
The fruit of Banyan (Gular) is very dear to the birds. Birds reach different areas after eating this fruit. Wherever these birds go to drop their feces (beat), the banyan plant becomes ready.
Where a banyan tree is planted, even if there is not a drop of water for 2-3 years, it remains the same. Nothing spoils the banyan even in famine. Flowers and leaves all remain as before.
Banyan roots store water as far as they go. Banyan is very helpful in increasing the underground water.
Banyan is called Vat tree, it also has spiritual significance. Women worship the Vat tree for the long life of husband, children and other relatives.

The way we saw the problem of oxygen in the past, seeing it, we realized how important environmental protection is at present. On 10th, I will keep a fast for the long life of my husband, I will plant a banyan plant before worshiping the fast. At present, I have ordered a tree plant and planted it in a pot. We should also make the next generation aware about environmental protection.
-Girja Garg, resident Sikandar Kampu
It is also difficult for women to find a banyan tree for worship during Vat Savitri fast. There are very few banyan trees in the city, so it is very important to plant new saplings. Banyans are useful in purifying the environment and keeping the weather balanced. I will definitely plant a banyan plant on June 10, I will also make other women aware.
Rani Gupta, resident of Shindi Ki Cantonment
Right now I have planted a banyan tree in the pot of the house itself. I will plant this plant in some good place during Vat Savitri fast on 10th June. We have also prepared plants like Mango, Neem, Peepal etc at home, which we will plant in any school, garden or other places as soon as the rains start. Banyan gives maximum oxygen. The natural gas that we did not appreciate, about which Corona has warned us. The scientific reason behind why Bargat is worshiped so much in our Sanatan culture is also understood.
