Introduction

Kalp Taruh ?

     Kalp Taruh is KalpTaru + Ruh – This term is a confluence of 2 objectives, Taru Means Tree in Hindi and Ruh means the Spiritual Energy/Being/Spirit that functions through the body.

     Trees symbolize many spiritual values, for example, the Banyan tree is known to be a symbol of abundance, whereas the Peepal tree is known to be a symbol of respect & sacredness. Similarly, inherent to every soul is a spectrum of virtues, which if brought into practice makes life- blissful, relationships- harmonious, teams- effective, society- just, environment- clean and healthy, and the world- perfect and glorious. 

     With this project, we aim to combine the sacred process to nurture a tree as well as the soul through values, as the project is to provide sustenance to both the plant and the person who plants. So, the word has been clubbed together to form – Kalp Taruh.

We encourage an Individual to Pick one Sapling and Plant One Sapling. Each sapling planted as part of the project will be registered in a mobile app for the documentation (such as location of the plant, name of the person planted, etc).

4. Sustenance

Through this mobile app, we will periodically share creative activities, short stories, Affirmations, Scintific & Environment Aspect, Meditation commentaries related to Values for personal sustenance. We will also share tips and techniques to support the sustenance of sapling.

To achieve this, this initiative extends the action of planting trees with the addition of internal values that can be nurtured in each human being.
