Bishnoi villages

Bishnoism, a religious movement, is devoted to eco-friendliness and wild life protection.
Jambho Ji, an unmatched visionary of his times, had not only completely understood the complex bond between man and nature, but also used a powerful medium, religion, to help masses imbibe the fine principals of co-existence with nature. Year: 1485 A.D.

Venue: Samrathal Dhora in middle of Thar Desert
An event, which will change the lives of millions for the centuries to come, is taking place here. Birth of a radically different, one of the most progressive religions in the world: Bishnoism!

Jambho Ji prescribed 29 golden commandments, an eclectic collection of wisdom distilled from the best of religious and social practices across the world, for one to be called as Bishnoi. 29 commandments [20 (Bis in Hindi) + 9 (No in Hindi)], had not only provided a basis for naming of the newly found religion, Bishnoi, but also acted as a reference guide for millions to live in complete harmony with their environment and establish a symbiotic relationship with nature.

So powerful, logical and simple were his teachings that people from all races and creeds, including Moslems, embraced it to form the basis of Bishnoi religion. In a cast ridden Indian society, where forced conversions were the buzzwords of time, this fusion, of different opinions emanating from people of different religions, in a reverse direction was nothing less than a miracle.
