Tree-Planting Ceremony is the sixteenth chapter of Ananda Marga Caryacarya Part 1.[1] In this chapter Anandamurti discussed the procedure of three-planting ceremony.[2]

Chapter synopsis

Anandamurti instructed to plant the tree while mentally reciting guru mantra. Then while pouring some water on tree everyone present will recite the following verse with Acarya/a—[2]

Oṋḿ madhu vátá rtáyate madhu kśarantu sindhavah;
Mádhviirnah santvośadhiih.
Madhu naktamutośaso madhumat párthivaḿ rajah;
Madhu dyaorastu nah pitá.
Madhumán no vanaspatirmadhumán astu súryah;
Mádhviirgávo bhavantu nah.
Oṋḿ madhu oṋḿ madhu oṋḿ madhu.

The meaning of the verse is—[2]

May the tree planted today prove felicitous for us with its fruits, flowers, fragrance, floral nectar, leaves and shade. May we ourselves prove helpful to the tree through our regular service in providing manure, water and sunshine to it. Oṋḿ shántih, oṋḿ shantih, oṋḿ shantih.

Finally Anandamurti instructed to tend the highly-beneficial trees such as basil, neem [margosa], ashoka [Saraca indica Linn] and eucalyptus with love and care; and also those yielding fruits and shade.
