Rudraksh trees to be planted in Vrindavan

Vrindavan, June 2 (IANS) Rukraksh trees are to be planted in a big way this monsoon in Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna.

Jagan Nath Poddar, convener of Friends of Vrindavan, an NGO, told IANS: “A massive plantation of rudraksh can end depression, stress, unrest and other problems the society is facing today.”

Mahamandeleshwar Swami Martandya Puriji Maharaj said at a function organised by Friends of Vrindavan that he had helped people in many cities and villages to plant rudraksh trees.

“It is a myth that it can grow only on the hills,” Swamiji said.

Rudraksh is a large broad-leaved tree whose seed is traditionally used as prayer beads in Hinduism. It is also known as blueberry beads.
