DARBHASAYANAM

Accordingly, when Brahmins recited the Veda, the leaves rustled, but when Saraswata recited it, the leaves did not move at all. So, the text of Saraswata was accepted as the correct one. This Peepal tree in Pullaranyam is very sacred whoever performs tapas under this tree gets salvation. Pullar, Kan Kalavar, Tevalar and others performed penance under this tree and Veda blessed with Moksha. It is also believed that if people without child perform Nagapratishtha under this Peepal tree, they would be blessed with children with long lives. The Pradakshina round this Peepal tree wards off the worst sins.

There are seven different species of Banyan trees, Ficus Indica, which are regarded by, Hindus as sacred and accordingly worshipped. The Aswattha comes first on the list. It is one of the most beautiful trees, in the country and grows into a huge size. It’s large leaves, very soft to the touch, in color bright green, are 'so light and thin that the slightest breeze sets them in motion; and as they produce an impression of most refreshing coolness the tree is considered to possess health- giving properties. When stirred by a breeze the leaves make a pleasant rustle of melodious sound, which can be compared, to the tune of the Veena.
