On 10th September Swamiji was welcomed by Prof. Dr. Péter Földesi, Rector of Széchenyi István University, Győr, Hungary to plant the 105th tree, dedicated to world peace, in front of the University’s Library. The auspicious event was attended by the delegates of the Rector’s Office, the Ministry of Education Science and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia, the Municipal Government of Győr, representatives of YIDL communities of Austria, Slovakia, the Indian diaspora, as well as students of the Széchenyi István University.

Swamiji planted a yoke-elm, which is a type of tree that tends to grow high. The high-aiming nature of the hornbeam Swamiji associated to the rising consciousness of the students studying at Széchenyi István University. Dr. Földesi, the Rector of the University implied that the event of the tree planting is a step towards the “green planet”, a lifestyle adjusted to the laws of nature and the environment.

HH Swamiji concluded the event with His good wishes to Hungarians telling that the yoke-elm tree would be the country’s symbol of re-found harmony and love.
