Our Approach

One Teaches Two

We have found that any community can experience exponential growth when one person takes the responsibility of teaching two others.

An ancient story

A story from India tells of a king who, being pleased with one of his servants, told him to ask for a favor. The servant asked the king to put one grain of rice on the first square of a chess board and merely double the grains of rice on each subsequent square. That is, put two on the next square, four on the next one, eight on the next square, and so on.

Our Values

Our values are what make Trees for Life unique. They are the essence of who we are.

Our main focus is not on what we do because that changes from one situation to another. Our focus is on "who we are." What we do is simply a reflection of who we are.

Here are some main elements of who we are:

Joining Hands

Trees for Life is a demonstration that when a small group of people joins hands and works toward a common purpose, miracles take place. What happens as a result goes beyond the mere sum of their individual efforts.

 

Even for people who have very little material resources, the practice of this principle is a powerful tool. It unleashes extraordinary power that impacts everyone's lives.

Finding my Way to Trees for Life

by Balbir Mathur
Founder and President


I came to the United States seeking wealth, power and prestige. I found that each of those were lacking without a sense of sacredness, and thus began a new journey for me.

On this journey I discovered that the secret to sacredness is sacrifice, which in turn leads to service. My search for a type of service that expresses sacredness led me to Trees for Life.

1,000 Year Perspective

We work from a very long-term perspective. We are not focused on producing immediate, short-term benefits, but rather contributing toward long-range paradigm shifts that will serve people for generations to come.
