DJAMBU BAROS

Batak Destiny legendary tree

Also known as Djambubarus

This is the Tree of Life

This is a huge Banyan-like tree that reaches to the skies. Every single leaf is covered with writing. Each leaf reveals the fate and personal details of a single person’s life. What a treat for nosy parkers and gossip columnists.

Stop right there. This tree is out of bounds. You won’t be able to reach it as only grows in Topmost Heaven.

However, before you enter this life your inner spirit — known as Tondi — is permitted to pluck a single leaf. This, like some leafy fortune cookie, bears the fate and fortunes of your upcoming new life.

Its always good to have a little advance information.
