Story of Bambu Live from creator of website
Since we started our concious nature-recovering activity we always in search'n meeting mode with same oriented people. And ways we-people run this activities today are so miracolously different! Bambu Live is a story of man "A", who learning in bulding the bamboo. Nice organic look, fast time of construction, super small cost - as one man do it for himself - all that wouldn't be enogh reasons for me to work upon that website. But, after visiting 5 bamboo lodges (mostly people called'm "Temples", as "Tea Temple" or "Temple of Scilence"), which "A" built, I want to show more - this harmonic atmosphere in that round bamboo huts.
Bamboo's deep curing mission
The idea of CocoPlant
Coconuts, coconuts and more coconuts - the main island's plant, symbol of tropical holidays and one of the main sources of income for the local community. Hovewer massive planting of coconut palms has its opposite side too, when the vast variety of auspicious trees changing to coconut scenery, with yellow dry fields in a seasons without the rain - roots of coconut are too short to hold the water. But here we want to explore the big Coco-benefits in a concept of CocoPlant - planting the seeds of rare, auspicious and highly valuable trees in a coconut halves, those which has a 3 holes. The very first experimental volunteer planting was made after our own initial experience to show its high potential - coco-halves can easily replace small plastic cups for soil. Read more...

Time ago we brought the box with island's Rudrakshas for mr. Suthep - translator of "Mahabharata" to Thai language. Now we want to share the news about our efforts with Rudraksha here together with inviting you to join us in that blissful activity.
Main discovery - it’s not only Rudraksha beads give a lots of merit for our health & mind while wearing, but the Rudraksha tree itself has countless of useful properties and needs to be protected.

Dangers for the trees and its solutions
Due to the development, regulations and "progress" in general, private landowners usually cut down the unknown trees when clearing the land. This leads to remaining of some of the Rudraksha trees just in temple/public areas and "undeveloped"-yet lands, where trees are usually being cleared when building begins. as soon as demanded investment found. Since the beginning of our activity at least one whole grove with Rudraksha trees and few single trees of Rudraksha were cut down, and one tree died from other reason.
Good news -we launched an attractive model of solution both for the Trees of Rudraksha and fortunate noble People, who will be able to own them (by registering land under). Dedicated website is a Rudraksha Club. The founder R was study in law, then worked for property & real estate in a few countries, including this island (link). We agreed about all the details with the owner of land in a most auspicious area of the island - East, and first "Tree Owners Club" with 7 trees of Rudraksha already opened.
Our experience counting now 3-rd season of local island research with wider knowledges and connections with whole Rudraksha world. Local activity includes: running a map of remaining trees of Rudraksha, collecting and comparing the seeds, planting Rudraksha, contacting the local land-lords (when its possible), related officials and various "conscious" org.'s in a form of yoga-healing centers, sharing the Rudrakshas with people, communities, centers and places, Ayurveda tests and jewelry-creation, websites promotion etc. Also Rudrakshas were sent to the various people, organisations and defined places around the country and worldwide. All of that activities still in progress.
So, as actual cure to protect that miraculously-found Rudraksha trees under real danger, and share the blessing benefits of Rudrakshas among the people, we launched "Rudraksha Tree Club". It based on idea of tree ownership, which was created earlier for the trees of drclining Cacao trees in NakhonSi - now we applying it to the trees of Rudraksha. "Rudraksha Tree Club" allows to buy the tree of Rudraksha for all the tree's lifetime, with official registering the land under its krone (in maximum rent + extension, however owners also ready to sell it). This allows to the Tree Owner:
1. To own and receive the fair amount of the Rudraksha beads (we see it as hundreds of divine big Rudrakshas every year.
2. To come and relax under the tree, usinf facilities of the master's house.
3. To improve the other flora under the tree - plant more favorable/healing plants
- we sized the tree plots as 200 sq. m. of land
4. to order for small extra-cost light Eco-lodge from bamboo & coconut as a "Tea House", "Silence Temple", "Meditation lodge" etc.

Great success we celebrate in our "Tree Friends Club" history - establishing of the first-ever Rudraksha Tree Club on Phangan island of Thailand, with 7 Tree-Friends and owners and 7 trees all together. 2,5 hectares on the east of the island has a waterfall river flows and 7 blessed trees of Rudraksha, most of which giving fruits with divine seeds. Among that trees is "Kunda-Mani" or "wish-truerer-tree" - giving fruits of Rudraksha with big divine forms of beads. You could see that place on our "Island Map of Rudraksha Trees", what is hidden, so you actually couldn't see it - until now!:)
Among of the other blessed signs I noticed Her - white female water buffalo, living here with friend near the lotus lake.
After all activity about contacts with "people behind orgs", and human-to-human delivery in the most direct way hand to hand, local and international sharing, we started to look again about actual online-presence for our Tree saving concepts, based on divine Rudraksha trees, remained by pure fortune in a few areasof Phangan island. we just returned from Nakhon Si Thammarat tour, where we were exploring the flora of National Park and waterfall's outskirts, searching for the trees of Rudraksha.
"We exploring the sacred trees growing on non-researched areas, with a mission to highlight this, spread its "divine fruits", and to protect and care about those of that trees, which now in danger. This shop represents Rudraksha seeds from new area in SEA - island in Siam gulf of Thailand. We creating the map of holy trees, and marking each tree and special features of its seeds. We planting, giving away, we writing the articles about Rudraksha and run few websites related to it.
Uniqueness of Rudrakshas here - first ripe fruits eaten by big fruit flying foxes, whom then spitting it around the area, and we collecting it almost fully-clean, sometimes far from the origin-trees.
All Rudrakshas are 3- or 4-mukhi, various forms and shapes, according to the tree character and exact location. Season of fruits - from Feb to March, some trees can give seldom fruits in other time too.
We spread hundreds of Rudrakshas among people we meet, so do not sell seeds in real life and plan to use received funds to live. We worship for Shiva - Rudra, so all other devotees of Shiva can get from us discount, or beds of Rudraksha for free, in case if you can arrange the delivery yourself.

On botanical Latin is Sandoricum koetjape, what is hard to pronounce. This unique tree is among the largest and oldest fruit trees in the world - we saw 500 years old tree, according to local sources - and we believe it - tree was giant! Santol fruits has 2-in-1 tastes - middle fruit is sweet while the rest around -- sour. This part used for the best-i-ever-try sauce, self-invented after inspiration.
Sauce was not just delicious but has a strong stomach-healing effects, which will be highlighted separately. And beautiful - look its greenery!
Our Cacao adventures together with continuing to explore defined ancient spiritual places made birth to new Mission - the most important we ever considered. This"New Big Discovery" - trees of Rudraksha on a island, appeared as a central part of whole unique Eco-system: other plants and various divine animals, which not live on surrounded mainlands. Going on with photo-registering Moon & stars light phases made this great in-&-outsight possible in a period of February-March, the most auspicious, according to the same-to-Rudraksha tradition. The fact that we didn't met even single Rudraksha tree during the long tour among a numerous parks on surrounded mainland provinces, and we just completed our first stage-plan with deserted trees of Cacao - the remaining part of Cacao farm promised now to be at least saved - both that make this Rudraksha discovery more than a good surprise, great Eco-news or gift from Nature.... Together with other happenings in parallel we're glad to announce on this still low-popular resource, quietly, about the new High-End-Important mission, exciting project and appearance of source of Sacred for all the Being, as well as once-in-life opportunity - "Rudraksha Island Rescue. The Awakening".*
Received a e-mail news from Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and, after writing to Leo & Co our plan to do green - here its posted on Kalos Fund, - I found then other interesting website - AskNature - and posted quick strategy there - to add ours best! Here below a copy of that - in case its not gonna be approved. Surely I have to share something - as a family person who had to live in a nature with minimum "modern comforts"... - the issue is how to get out from me the most precious and needed for the others... Trying to do the best - my modest promise.
Groves of Rudraksh trees lies in a few places, and each tree is unique. So why this at the beginning? - Rudraksha's trunk growing together with big coconut, and has a spiky guard on the North. But to find a blessed seeds I walked around.
We were glad to see that our little listeners were smart, full of attention, open-minded and already had extensive knowledge about the world around. They loves the chocolate and tea we served (not surprise - it was tea made from ancient trees at north of Thailand) and excited to plant their cacao seeds. We going to continue - as we also got very positive experience and hope that dozens of young cacao sprouts soon will have a new life.
