The Asoka tree, botanically known as Saraca indica from the Fabaceae family, it is also called the Sita-Ashok, is a medium-sized evergreen tree with large flame-like scarlet flowers that appear clusters. It is prized for its beautiful foliage and fragrant flowers. Its deep green leaves are copper-colored when young and hang placidly from the branches. It is considered sacred by Hindus and Buddhists and is a common motif in Indian iconography and literature. It also has medicinal uses. 

Its flowering season is around February to April. The Ashoka flowers come in heavy, lush bunches. They are bright orange-yellow in color, turning red before wilting. It is grown in many gardens because of its decorative orange-red flowers and evergreen beautiful foliage. 

Sita Ashoka as a Sacred Tree

  • That Sita sat under an Ashoka tree (a- shoka : without sorrow) in the Ashoka grove during her stay in Lanka is commonly known episode of the Ramayana.
  • Years before the abduction of Sita by Ravana, there lived a Cannibal among the Bhil tribe named Sashoka.
  • He roamed the forests of central India and lived by killing passers-by and consuming them as food.
  • Once he met a Rishi, who was in meditation and in peace in the Jungle, Then Sashoka asked to Rishi, what must I do to attain such peace? So that people may love me instead of running away from me in fear?”
  • Good man! “Your time will come. Live your life in penance and in your next life you will be born as a tree in Lanka where Sita, the abducted wife of Rama will take refuge under your shade.” 
  • Hanuman, the monkey, will come in search of Sita. He will sit upon your branches as he conveys Rama’s message to his wife. Upon hearing his words, Sita’s suffering and sorrow will cease. At that moment, your sins will be washed away too and your grief will forever disappear.
  • It is believed Shakyamuni Buddha was born under an ashoka tree in Lumbini Garden.
