Wishing Tree Everything we have created on this planet was essentially first created in the mind. All the work done by humans — both the wonderful things and the horrible things — first found expression in the mind, then became manifested in the outside world. If this happens, you are a Kalpavriksha yourself. Anything that you wish will happen.

Sadhguru: The most miraculous thing in this existence in terms of instruments, is not the computer, car or spacecraft, but the human mind. It is the most miraculous thing if only you could use it consciously. Your mind can be in five different states.
It can be inert. That means it is not activated at all, it is in a rudimentary state. Inert minds are not a problem. Someone who is very simple-minded and whose intellect is still not effervescent has no trouble. He eats well, he sleeps well. It is only the people who think who have trouble sleeping. Simple-minded people perform all the activities of the body far better than the so-called intellectual people because it needs some intelligence to cause disturbance and chaos.
But an inert mind is closer to animal nature than the possibility of what it means to be human. The moment you pump some energy into an inert mind, it becomes active, but it could be scattered. If you energize the mind further, the mind comes to a place where the mind is not so scattered, but it is oscillating — one day it is this way, another day that way. This is a huge improvement over being scattered moment to moment. If you energize it further, it slowly becomes one-pointed — that is far better.
But the most important thing is the mind should become a conscious process. The reason why success comes so easy and naturally for one person and is a struggle for another is because one person thinks the way he wants to think and another person thinks against himself.
Monkey of the Mind There is a beautiful story in the yogic lore. A man went for a walk and accidentally walked into paradise. So he went and slept on the grass. After a few hours, he woke up well-rested. I am hungry. I wish I had something to eat. I wish I had something to drink. In yoga, the human mind is referred to as markata, or monkey, because of its nature. If you say you are monkeying someone, it means you are imitating someone — this is the full-time job of your mind.
So, an un-established mind is referred to as a monkey. I asked for food, food came. I asked for drink, drink came. Maybe there are ghosts around. The problem was, he was sitting under a wishing tree or a Kalpavriksha. Whatever he asked for became a reality. In life, you are also constantly sitting under a Kalpavriksha, so you need to develop the mind to a point where it becomes a Kalpavriksha, not a source of madness.

Transforming the Mind into a Wishing Tree
Religious beliefs[ edit ] Kalpavriksha is an artistic and literary theme common to the Hindu Bhagavatas , the Jains and the Buddhists. In the earliest account of the Samudra manthan or "churning of the ocean of milk" Kalpavriksha emerged from the primal waters during the ocean churning process along with Kamadhenu, the divine cow that bestows all needs. The tree is also said to be the Milky Way or the birthplace of the stars Sirius. The king of the gods, Indra returned with this Kalpavriksha to his abode in paradise and planted it there. It is on account of these wish-granting trees that the asuras waged a perpetual war with the devas as the heavenly gods who exclusively benefited freely from the "divine flowers and fruits" from the Kalpavriksha, whereas the asuras lived comparatively in penury at the lower part of its "trunk and roots". The Parijata is often identified with its terrestrial counterpart, the Indian coral tree Eyrthrina indica , but is most often depicted like a magnolia or frangipani Sanskrit : champaka tree. It is described as having roots made of gold, a silver midriff , lapislazuli boughs, coral leaves, pearl flower, gemstone buds, and diamond fruit.
