Lakshmi Taru

Pictures of Lakshmi Taru (Simarouba glauca DC) from
It is known as the paradise tree. Now it got the media attention due to the fact that its seeds contain more than 60% of edible oil. This tree needs very little water to grow , so we can cultivate it in our waste lands without much effort. It consumes large amount of CO2 , purifies the environment, planting one sapling will make us part of the programs against global warming. The oil is free from bad cholestrol, this can also be used as bio fuel. All parts of this tree can be used. Guruji suggest to plant as much trees as possible and to be a part of a healthy environment for tomorrow.

"The day you feel hopeless, horrible, and worse, on that day get out of your room and ask people, What can I do you for you ? that service you have done that day will bring a revolution inside you. It will change your whole gramophone record."-Sri Sri
