    REG- Ashwatha tree and its moola mantra, significance etc.,

    Among trees, the Aswatha is the most important. In most of the places, a murthy of God is consecrated below the tree.

    In Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the family which plants the tree, does sacred thread ceremony to the tree and then conducts its marriage with the neem tree.

    Most of the serpent Temples in Kerala and Ganesa temples in Tamil Nadu are constructed below this tree. Women who are not able to beget children are asked to go round the tree daily.

    The great shade of the tree is used as the meeting place of senior citizens in every village.

    Moolatho Brahma roopaya,
    madhyatho Vishnu roopine,
    Agratha Shiva roopaya
    Vruksha rajaya they nama., 1.

    My salutations to the king of trees.
    Whose root is the form of Brahma,
    Middle is the form of Lord Vishnu,
    And top is the form of Lord Shiva.

    Hence this Aswatha (arasa maram) tree is worshipped because of Brahmma, vishnu and shiva are residing in the tree as narrated above.
    Aswatha sarva papani satha janma arjithanicha,
    Nudhaswa mama vrakshendra, sarva aiswarya pradho bhava., 2

    Ayurbalam yaso varcha, praja pasu vasooni cha,
    Brahma prajnam cha medham cha thwam nodehi Vanaspathe., 3

    Sathatham varuno raksheth thwamarad vrushtirasrayedh,
    Parithasthwam nishevantham thrunani sukhamasthu they., 4

    Akshi spandham bhujaspandham duswapnam dhurvichinthanam,
    Sathroonam cha samuthanam hyaswastha samaya Prabho., 5 i will insert from 6 to 10 after seeing space.
    Rig yaju sama manthrathma, sarva roopi, parathpara,
    Aswatho Veda moolo asou rishibhi prochyathe sada., 10

    Great sages go in search of Aswatha,
    As it is the soul of Rig, Yajur and sama Vedas
    And takes all forms, greater than the greatest,
    And is the root of all the three Vedas.

    Brahmaha guruha chaiva daridhro vyadhi peeditha,
    Aavarthya laksha sankhyam tham sthothram yedath sukhee bhavth., 11

    If this prayer is repeated one hundred thousand times,even those cursed by Brahma or the teacher, those who are poor and diseased,
    Would get cured of all ills and lead a pleasant life.
