Mangoes and mango trees are in existence since at least 6000 years. It is said to
have originated in the present Bengal, Bangladesh, northeastern India and Burma.
Buddhist monks not only spread Buddhism in foreign lands, but also mango seeds and
trees. The traders took it to the middle east and the Portugese to Africa, Europe
and to the new world. There is mention of mangoes in Ramayana and Mahabharata.
We talk of kalpavRksha, a celestial tree that grants all wishes. The mango tree
is perhaps that tree! Here are some more patterns with mango leaves. Enjoy!
