The tropical tree aquilaria belongs to the Thymelaeceae family, which includes about forty species distributed mainly in Southeast Asia. It has a slender appearance, a clear bark and leaves of an intense bright green; it can easily exceed five meters in height.
Aquilaria is the origin of agar wood, as well as sought-after species and other rare and precious products. A characteristic that he shares with a nearby genus, The Gyrinops, with nine species also distributed in Southeast Asia.
These trees have been known for millennia for the virtues of their black, resinous and fragrant wood. It is one of the most valuable woods in the world
Agar wood is also known as Eaglewood, oud, Aloeswood, Gaharu in Indonesia, Jinkoh or Kanankoh in Japan. It is used by the peoples of Southeast Asia and the Middle East for its fragrant properties - its fragrance is woody, powerful, musky - and medicinal.
It is used as incense in certain religious rituals, notably in Korea or Hinduism. It also served as a medium to preserve certain texts: this is the case of pormuniyan, a Javanese medical-magic collection, kept in the National Library of France. It is also used as essential oil, extracted from wood after a complex maceration and distillation process.
Tibetan DZI or sacred agates are Tibetan talismans or amulets, the king of good luck, sometimes revered as a true deity. The success of the Tibetan pearl comes from its multiple eyes, up to 21.
DZI originates from the Central Asian region and is generally found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, During Hanhan to Burma and Thailand. They are found in many sizes and shapes, with multiple eyes and stripes. Tibetans cherish these pearls and consider them hereditary gems. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates as "brilliance, clarity, splendor." In Mandarin Chinese, dzi are called "pearl of heaven." Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and attract the attention and admiration of all. For Tibetans, wearing a Dzi pearl can develop in everyone this natural glow called talent.
The Dzis that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are elongated agate beads with a different geometric shapes on their surfaces, but each with a very specific meaning. Dzi are considered by Tibetans to be powerful protections. According to legend, these stones are not of earthly origin, but, shaped by the gods and sown on earth so that whoever finds them, have a better Karma.
Many legends attribute to them a divine origin. One of them claims that they sometimes fall from the sky escaped from the treasures of the Gods, another says that they "mature" at the bottom of the earth and that they can sometimes be found inside some geodes. Some legends say that they are fossil insects, and others finally Garuda droppings.
The Dzi are also mentioned in some ancient Buddhist texts because some malas intended for the advanced practices of Vajrayana must be made in Dzi Dzi Dzi dating back 4,500 years were found in Tibet during archaeological excavations, thus in the middle of the shamanism period of Ben long before the arrival of Buddhism.
Dzi-like pearls are found in many parts of the world, in Asia (Cambodia for example) but also in archaeological sites in Mesopotamia and even In Carthage The stone is in agate and the drawings are handmade using a secret technique.
The pendant represents the wheel of Buddhist life
In terms of symbols, the Buddha, sitting under the bodhi tree, experiences two things. First of all, he saw a Ferris wheel. This wheel embraces the whole of conditioned existence, it is of the same extent as the cosmos, it contains all living beings. It rotates non-stop: it turns day and night, it turns life after life, it turns era after era. We cannot see when it has begun to turn, and we cannot yet see when it will stop turning: only a Buddha sees this.
