संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

नरकं न पश्येत्

अश्वत्थमेकं पिचुमन्दमेकं न्यग्रोधमेकं दश चिञ्चिणीकाः।
कपित्थबिल्वामलकत्रयं च पञ्चाम्रनाली नरकं न पश्येत्॥
aśvatthamekaṁ picumandamekaṁ nyagrodhamekaṁ daśa ciñciṇīkāḥ |
kapitthabilvāmalakatrayaṁ ca pañcāmranālī narakaṁ na paśyet ||

One who plants one pippala tree (Ficus religiosa), one neem tree (Azadirachta indica), one banyan tree (Ficus benghalensis), ten tamarind trees (Tamarindus indica).
Three trees each of  wood apple (Feronia elephantum) bilva (Aegle marmelos), amla (Emblic myrobalans) and five mango trees (Mangifera indica), does not see Naraka!

[And all we do now is deforestation!]
