Its not easy to complete this overview, as I always in position between - between Reality in its simplicity, and 'considered-common' human paths - "Aeleaeocarpus something" - or Vedic holy tree on a legionary language, with following attempts to get some point to "protect trees". Let's agree that I'll use both, preferring the first one.
Years ago one of the small private museums in Nakhon Si Thammarat (province of Thailand) - its listed here as 5-Th - became famous - its collection keeps few of the ancient priceless-alike statuettes of Nataraja, including the one which was stolen with big scandal before, to quietly sell later in other part of the country to people who far enough from that kind of news & gossips. Nataraja is a dancing aspect of Shiva, one of the most popular. Other forms of Shiva and his cult, which were used to worship, in this lands and other areas around the world for thousands of years were:
After some time we've met, learn and pray for that holy forms in same-as-ancestors places, trying more and more to enclose our experience with Tradition. It was Ganesh, who shows us trees of Cacao - His ancient black iron statue was excavated at the remains of the pre-Buddist temple in area we used to live. When during our Cacao-rescuing activity we found the trees of Rudraksha in "familiar" place, our family-team knew much more about this tree and its neighbors by paradise gardens, than its usually happens. Still, this fortunate meeting with Rudrakshas was-and-still ultimate Revelation in our inner - the Power of Shiva awakening in His purest, ancient, all-blessing and absolute energies, and this is the main master plan, coming to Life right now every moment - from Heavens through the Earth, and further down under by PatalaGanga. Om Om Om
The Place, the Time, the People
Our campaign o f saving the trees of Cacao in South Thailand was successfully completed, although it was long and sometimes worrying - farmers stopped cutting the trees and receiving high profit selling fresh pods of Cacao! But next Nature discoveries shows - for us in Kalos it was a good training before next mission - to save the sacred trees of Aryan race - Rudraksha, miraculously growing on the island nearby. How and where to began it, when the local land-lords don't pay much respect to holy trees of their ancestors? The unusual situation deserves new solutions, and here below is exactly this one - to send the perfect-figures, made from sacred Rudrakshas around the world to awake the energy of Rudra.
The seed - Kalos Nature Centre
We found the place for our Kalos "Sacred Grove" - Eco-center with gardens & elements of farm around. From here we will spread faster the concepts of Tree Owner Clubs, Tea Travel, Pyramid Plan, re-birthing of Sacred Groves around the world - can't find the link - all Tree-related combined with...?? - Yes! - Marine Research Center and art gallery!
Few points why, except the BNF -big new factor.
Tea community nowadays rapidly growing - tea masters travels around the world to run the tea ceremonies, more online-tea-shops opening every year with better and better selections of popular and rare teas, new wave of passionate people learning "how-to grow, dry'n roast" and run the tea farms in new destinations, such as Lao & Thailand, where they're creating new collections of Chen & Chu Pu-erhs, Oolongs and other teas.
Being close to that "new wave", after visiting few places with healthy natural water source its became obvious that "the New World need Tea Travel" - where each place has remarkable both water source, perfect for the tea-making - waterfall, hot spring or other, and a nice area to enjoy freshly brewed tea. Also its should be option to stay - as the travel require - still plenty of magic places, even after 3-step filtering .
In September 1990 Oregon pilots reported the appearing of giant Shri Yantra in the desert. After various theories the creator revealed himself - Bill Witherspoon- US-artist, and later founder of innovative Sky Factory. After six years of self-discovered Grand Love-letters to Being Bill shared what he found in "Art as technology". Created back in 199five - five number doesn't work - today this chronicle a series of experiences and observations becames possibly even more fresh-looking and actual. I see there the way and method of how we can make something nice and big together - not just for each of us who participate - for all the Existence, whatever anybody means by it! With great appreciation to Bill and people who helped him in described experiences we publishing here the chronicle. Believing that its reading will be same exiting that it was for us, we will not share it on any social pages and on any other of numerous fund's websites - continuing the good eternal-alike tradition of organic transfer of knowledge, which contains defined amount of luck.
Art as technology
Daughter of mountain
Lover of lonely places
To Her who is ancient and
To Her who sounds in my
The voice of the sky
I bow down
Love story, or red hearts under the tree
Fall for the leaf can be the beginning of his wonderful circle in a world of colors. On a tree all the leaves are just green.
Fallen leaf is a tree's story - or one of many stories what that Tree has.
There are the time when some leaves has form of hearts.
Days passed, and leaves shows other tale - now its Tree of Life.
