THE INVERTED BANYAN (BG 15.1-4) | HG GAURMANDAL DAS
"The Blessed Lord said: There is a banyan tree which has its roots upward and its branches down and whose leaves are the Vedic hymns. One who knows this tree is the knower of the Vedas." (Bhagavad Gita 15.1)
One may ask, why Bhagavad Gita is sidelining the Vedic rituals and stressing just on the prime importance of Bhakti-Yoga. It's because the purpose of entire vedic knowledge is to understand the "Inverted Banyan Tree" and then to cut it down, which is easily done by devotional service to Lord Krishna.
