Story of the Beal Tree:

The Beal tree, also known as Aegle marmelos, holds a revered place in Indian religions, particularly Hinduism. It is commonly known as ‘Bael’ in India and is associated with Lord Shiva, one of the principal deities of Hinduism12. The tree’s trifoliate leaves, known as ‘Bel patra,’ are symbolic of the three eyes of Lord Shiva and represent the holy trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh (Shiva)2. These leaves are an indispensable part of worship and rituals dedicated to Lord Shiva, and offerings of Bel patra are believed to bring the devotee closer to the deity23.

In addition to its religious significance, the Beal tree is also known for its medicinal properties. It is used in traditional medicine to treat various ailments and is considered a natural antibiotic and antifungal agent2. The fruit of the tree, often referred to as ‘wood apple,’ is used to make a refreshing drink called ‘Bel sherbet,’ which is not only delicious but also has high medicinal value2.

Overall, the Beal tree is deeply intertwined with the spiritual and cultural fabric of India, symbolizing purity, divinity, and the essence of life itself45.
