The word Bishnoi is derived from Bis(twenty) + Nau(Nine) i.e. followers of 29 Principles given by Guru Jambheshwar.Bishnois are known as the first environment conservationists in the world. Guru Jambheshwar gave the message to protect trees and wildlife around 540 years ago when nobody could predict that harming the environment means harming yourself. He formulated twenty nine tenets. The tenets were not only tailored to conserve bio-diversity of the area but also ensured a healthy Eco-friendly social life for the community.
