A wishing tree is an individual tree used as an object of wishes and offerings. This is very popular in India, and also in Ireland, the Scottish highlands, and in many other cultures as well. Wishing trees are believed to hold a special spiritual value.
By tradition, people make offerings, leave small objects such as coins or flowers, tie pieces of cloth to the tree, or say prayers in front of the tree.
In Hindu mythology, the banyan tree is also called Kalpavriksha, meaning "wish- fulfilling tree", as it represents eternal life because of its seemingly ever-expanding branches. Our version was designed by Jewelry Program Director Dianna Badalament to represent her hope that all the women in Made by Survivors programs continue to see their wishes come true.
