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. Rudraksha improving and empowering the soil, clearing waters, feeding various insects & animals and has unexplored relations with Sunrays.

Dangers for the trees and its solutions
Unfortunately, due to the tourism development, law regulations and "new times" 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.
Good news is that using our extensive experience we created attractive solution both for the Trees and People, who will own them - Rustam was study in law and 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 - Than Sadeth, and first "Tree Owners Club" with 7 trees of Rudraksha already opened.
Our experience includes 1,5 years of research: creating a map of remaining trees, collecting and comparing the seeds, planting Rudraksha, contacting the local land-lords, officials and yoga-healing communities, sharing the thousands of Rudrakshas with people, communities, centers and places, Ayurveda tests and jewelry-creation, websites promotion etc.
As a result, we prepare "Tree Ownership" concept, offering to buy the tree of Rudraksha for tree lifetime with official registering the land under its krone (in maximum rent). 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.

Further continue the Tree Ownership in other areas
We mapped the remaining Rudrakshas in four main areas according to the four winds - East, West, South and North, and run the info-data of all available lands, people and trees with contacts of useful info. The project can be expanded in a island's size, where many Tree Owners can take the benefits of having their own Tree of holy Rudraksha.
