Wish Fulfilling Tree (Kalpa-Vriksha)

We have all heard of "Wish Fulfilling Tree". In Sanskrit it is called Kalpa-Vriksha. It is a mythological Wish Fulfilling or Boon-Giving tree. It is a tree that has mythological significance in India and elsewhere. As per mythology, if you wish anything from this tree, it fulfills the wish of that person. Considered as sacred among Hindus, the tree is believed to have been one of the nine jewels, which were churned out of the sea (Samudra Manthan) by the demons and gods. Here below is a story about that "Wish Fulfilling Tree".

"A man was sitting under the shade of the "Wish Fulfilling Tree". He wished to be a king, and in an instant he became a king. The next moment he wished to have a beautiful damsel with him, and the damsel was instantly by his side. The man then thought within himself, that it is a remote area & is near a forest, what if a tiger came and devoured him. Lo!! and alas! in an instant he was in the jaws of a tiger!

Similarly God is like that "Wish Fulfilling Tree". Whosoever, in God's presence thinks that he is destitute and poor, remains as such, but one who thinks and believes that the God will fulfils all his desires, receives everything from the Lord. So from the God, whatever, is asked for, God provides that to his devotee. God is so kind that he provides everything to his devotee even before asking as God reads the mind of His devotee. If you have firm faith in God & your wish is pure then God shall certainly fulfill your wish. "

The essence is that, whatever you want, material or spiritual, you can get it from God by becoming His devotee. God Himself declares in "Bhagwat Gita"

"ananyas cintayanto mam
ye janah paryupasate
tesham nityabhiyuktanam
yoga-ksemam vahamy aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 22)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form—to them I carry what they lack, and I preserve what they have."

"man-mana bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaishyasi satyam te
pratijane priyo ’si me" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend."

So it is very necessary that we have firm faith in God & we have Positive Affirmations in our mind. Every thought we have in our mind & every word we say is an affirmation. So let's always have positive thoughts in our mind so that "Wish Fulfilling Tree" called God can fulfill our life with all the positive things. Let's never have negativity in our life or our thoughts as same shall then be present in our life. Do not let the tiger of negativity devour you & let the positivity always be on your mind & in your life.

Jai Sri Krishna
