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.

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.

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.
