In August 1890 Swami Vivekananda along with Swami Akhandananda meditated under the Ashwattha tree near Shiva Temple near Almora. He had a revelation that the microcosm and macrocosm were built on the same plan. The original Peepul Tree popularly known as Jnanan Vriksha had completely dried up by mid-2014. A cloned sapling from the same tree had been planted here on the same spot on 15 July 2016. This place is approximately 20 km away from Ramakrishna Kutir, Almora.
This book recounts the significance of Swami Vivekananda’s realization under the Jnana Vriksha and the efforts to resurrect the tree through cloning.
