The Banyan Series...

 

Hinduism considers two sacred selves, that of the temporal flesh, in flow with that of the everlasting spirit.  We each possess an endless spirit – one that cannot die easily, even in death.  The banyan symbolizes one’s spiritual self in its’ physical form on earth.

 

It’s revered the tree of immortality, for it can grow for centuries, neither dying nor renewing… a material sign of our immortal nature and of our ability to survive beyond the confines of humanity… a sign that we’re more than we really think we are.
