One of the most powerful symbolic uses of trees is to underscore the unity of the human race. Bahá’u’lláh wrote, “Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Deal ye one with another with the utmost love and harmony, with friendliness and fellowship…. So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.” “Thus hath He likened this world of being to a single tree, and all its peoples to the leaves thereof, and the blossoms and fruits. It is needful for the bough to blossom, and leaf and fruit to flourish, and upon the interconnection of all parts of the world-tree, dependeth the flourishing of leaf and blossom, and the sweetness of the fruit.”
A tree plantation service project was carried out in Godavali community of Maharashtra. The children as well as the elderly were involved in this project.
