Mitragyna Speciosa (also known as "Kratom") is an ornamental tree from South Eastern Asia that goes by many different names. Its history can be traced back for thousands of years with connections to ancient Buddhism and the hymns of the Rig Veda. In ancient times, it was worshiped as a goddess known as "Kademba" or "Kadamba". According to regional linguistics, this is an old tribal term for a holy or important tree to the people populating the south east Asian islands around 10 thousand years ago. During weddings and celebrations, women would dance around this sacred tree or keep its dried flowers for good luck. Even today, its flowers and brightly colored leaf powders (which are collected for ornamental and decorative purposes) are sacred to Hinduism. Lord Krishna would play the flute standing in front of his favorite tree with the Yamuna River flowing in front of him. The Kademba tree also has astronomical significance in Eastern mythology. The great Indian astronomer, Aryabhatta, imagined the flowers on the Kadamba ball to be like humans standing on Earth and all of them being pulled towards the center because of the force of gravity.
