Nakshatra Vanam

To nourish our bond with nature, trees and Mother Earth, we are creating a garden of Nakshatra trees and plants and you can be a part of it. Sponsor a nakshatra tree in the compound of the Chinmaya Swayambhu Ayyappa Temple. You can plant a tree to celebrate a birthday, give gratitude and commemorate the life of someone dear to you. In our tradition, whenever a baby is born, the family planted a tree of the same Nakshatra, and as the baby grew, it had to look after the tree, giving it a close earth connection. You can now sponsor a Nakshatra tree at Adi Sankara Nilayam’s Nakshatra Vanam and join us to create a sacred space that will have the complete set of 27 trees. Your donation will cover the cost of the tree and towards the care of the Vanam. We invite you to plant the tree yourself, or we can do so on your behalf with acknowledgement.
