Tridev resides in banyan tree
It is told in the scriptures that the trinity i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh reside in the banyan tree. Brahma resides in the root of the banyan tree, Lord Vishnu resides in the trunk and Mahadev resides in the branches of the tree. On the other hand, the branch hanging down is the symbol of Maa Savitri. For this reason, worshiping the banyan tree on this special day brings blessings of the trinity and the blessings of Mata Savitri also remain with the family.
It has been said in astrology that worshiping the banyan tree helps in getting a child. According to the same legends, seeing the worship and loyalty of Mata Savitri, Yamraj gave life to the dead husband Parayanata. Since then it is believed that by worshiping the banyan tree, women get the blessings of their husband’s long life. Along with this, all the troubles and sorrows that come in life go away.
