Peepal - Nyagrodha The nyagrodha or banyan tree, (not to be confused with the Peepul Ficus Religiosus or Sacred Fig), with its hanging branch like roots which turn into trunks and can grow to cover acres, was regarded as resembling the Kshatriya. The nyagrodha is the kshatra power of trees, and the Kshatriya is the kshatra power [among humans], for the Kshatriya dwells fastened to the kingdom, and is supported [by it]. ] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kshatriya Peepul - Banyan Sacred Fig Tree - Fig Tree
