History of the Bishnois
Loosely translated, the word ‘Bishnoi’ means the number 29, and it represents the 29 principles that the villagers live by. Bishnoi is also a Hindu religious sect, following the 29 principles laid down by Guru Jambheshwar, the founder of the sect. He was considered a reincarnation of Lord Krishna, and his teachings propagated that God is a divine power present everywhere. Amongst the 29 principles that he taught, ten are devoted to personal hygiene and good health, seven to healthy social behaviour, four to the worship of God, and eight to the preservation and care for the biosphere. These principles are followed by the tribe living in the Bishnoi village on a daily basis, with the utmost respect for nature and its every little constituent, including small insects. In fact, the history of the village is well-known for the sacrifice of the villagers, wherein they sacrificed their lives to save trees from being cut down!
