Peepal tree has been worshipped for a very long time in our society. The elder women in Hindu families have always worshipped Peepal due to its benevolent and blessing attributes. It is interesting to note that not many people understand the science of Astrology but when it comes on worshipping Peepal tree then almost everyone has the knowledge and inclination.
In Astrology, the Peepal tree is closely linked with the planet Jupiter. Jupiter is the most rewarding planet in Astrology. Its presence is always very graceful as it is always rewarding. When Jupiter is afflicted in a horoscope then Peepal tree worship is recommended. This is one unique remedy that does not require a recommendation. Peepal tree worship turns a strong Jupiter into an auspicious one and weak Jupiter into a stronger one.
The Peepal tree is believed to be Lord Shiva’s abode too. It is believed that both good and evil souls reside in the Peepal tree. The greatness of the worship of this tree lies in the fact that whosoever worships the Peepal tree gets reward of worshipping Lord Shiva. Peepal tree worship alone has the tendency to overcome all planetary afflictions.
There are various ways to worship the Peepal tree. The simplest method is to offer Jal (water) in its roots everyday in the morning. It is never advisable to offer Jal during afternoon or evening time. Another way is to light a Desi Ghee Diya/lamp during evening time.
It is worth understanding that Peepal is scientifically a tree that breathes and lives like other plants & trees. Any worship associated with a living entity is far more rewarding and fruitful than worshipping idol(s). So, in a sense worshipping the Peepal tree yields quick and better results than any other form of worship.
Another interesting facet of Peepal tree is that it grows wild. No one plants a Peepal tree. It is advisable that a Peepal tree should not be removed/cut unless absolutely necessary.
Peepal tree worship is recommended for all ascendants (Lagna). It is a wonderful remedy for those having weak/afflicted Jupiter in their horoscope. This worship is known to provide the following results:
- Stability in thoughts and actions
- Logical thinking
- Marriage (removes obstacles in marriage)
- Children (it is the significator for children)
- Religious/charitable bent in life
- Uninterrupted flow of income

Worship this tree and stay blessed in your life.
