Sorry to remove the oxygen passage. Such information needs to be quoted and related to scientific work. I couldn't find it on the Internet.

plaska or plaksa?

Looks like a joke... But some say you can get some energy from Sacred fig leaves, enough to recharge a mobile battery. Don't know what to do with this. --Mlelao (talk) 04:26, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

"where L stands for the German ld sound"[edit]

"ld" on the end of a German word is pronounced "lt".
So this is saying that L is pronounced "lt"?

No idea where that comes from. Not from here: Kortoso (talk) 20:31, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

New section on the ancient importation of this tree to Africa and South Asia[edit]

Although it is fairly well known that the Pipal tree was taken from places inside of India and transported to places like Sri Lanka, there are at least a handful of 19th century authors that describe this tree as being found and revered as sacred in parts of ancient Africa that have housed Buddhist missionaries. A modern author tries to cover the topic more fully in the book; The Inherent Scholarly Prejudices on the Relationship between Judaism, Buddhism, and Christianity-or-Jesus's Godama Sources and a Truer History of the Post-Axial Age Egyptian, Grecian, and Persian Empires — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:17, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

What is the life span of the tree?[edit]

I think this article fails to provide the most basic information such as the average life span and many other biological facts. A bit more expansion regarding the classification of species and how it is different from other fig trees would also be informative for readers.Cx3z (talk) 18:22, 17 March 2015 (UTC) Agreed, this article stresses more on the religious significance than botanical aspects.
