A Banyan Three plus One!

FYI, In Hinduism, the banyan tree is considered sacred and is called "Vat Vriksha." God Shiva as Dakshinamurthy is nearly always depicted sitting in silence under the banyan with rishis at his feet. It is thought of as perfectly symbolizing eternal life due to its seemingly unending expansion.
