7 Wooden Sticks (Samit)

Another group of seven which owes its origins to the Paramatma is Samit or the small wooden sticks used as fuel in various yagyas and homas. The seven types of Samit are: 1. Palaasa tree 2. Banyan tree 3. Fig tree 4. Jack tree (Palaa maram) 5. Samee 6. Asani nata 7. Pushkara parna. The specialty of these trees is that they bear fruit, without apparently generating blossoms.
