For almost 30 years, Vishwaguruji has been planting symbolic World Peace Trees around the world, giving people hope and inspiration for World Peace. The Banyan tree that he has planted on India's 70th Republic Day in OM Ashram, has a special significance.
In 2010, the first two Carinthian Peace Trees of Vishwaguruji Swami Maheshwarananda, founder of Yoga in Daily Life, were planted in Klagenfurt and Villach, to mark the occasion of 35 years of Yoga in Daily Life in Carinthia. On 7 October 2017, in the presence of representatives of the city of Villach, another living tree, in the Walther von der Vogelweide Park, became a Peace Tree in the hope of inspiring peace on Earth.
