Mammoth's Ivory is easily recognizable by the curved Schreger lines crossing at an angle of less than 90 degrees while those of the elephant intersect at ±115 degrees. Elephant ivory is strictly prohibited for sale.
Most mammoth species died out 15,000 to 12,000 years ago. A last species of dwarf mammoth is recorded in northern Siberia, on Wrangel Island, between 5,700 and 1,700 BC. J.
Our mammoth ivory comes from the Siberian permafrost in Yakuti.
Akashagarbha is the protector of people born under the sign of buffalo and tiger.
It is one of the eight great boddhisattva of vajrayana. and one of the thirteen Buddhas of the Japanese Tantric School Shingon. Its name is made up of 'unlimited space', and garbha, 'matrix'. invoked to develop wisdom.
Its cult has been maintained mainly in Japan.
The essence of the ether is the essence of ether and belongs on the mandalas to the ratna family (jewel). According to the Akashagarbha Soutra, he is prayed eastwards while waiting for dawn (arua) which is his manifestation. It is also said that the moon, the sun and the stars are its manifestations. Given that part of its name may have the meaning of "heaven," some have suggested seeing a celestial or stellar deity at the origin of bodhisattva.
This bodhisattva is associated with a memory-enhancing ritual described in the Bodhisattva's Soutra, which was introduced to Japan during the Nara period (645-794). Even today, many recite his mantra in the hope of revitalizing a failing memory. On the island of Honshu, children used to pay tribute to Kokuzo on their thirteenth birthday to seek improvements in their intellectual abilities. We also pray for manual skill in the process of being used; he is considered the patron saint of craftsmen.
Apart from its utilitarian aspects, Kokuzô's mantra also has a spiritual effect. It is recited to develop wisdom. Kukai, founder of Shingon Buddhism, made several times his particular asceticism, the "Goumanji" 100-day ritual consisting of repeating the mantra a million times in isolation. At the end of the 10th, it is said that the star of dawn, symbolized by the bodhisattva, went down to blend into him, bringing him enlightenment.
Last on the list of thirteen Buddhas of the Shingon current, 'K-agarbha' also closes the cycle of funeral rituals by presiding over the last commemorative ceremony 32 years after the death.
It also has some importance in Nichiren Buddhism. The Seicho-ji (Kiyosumi-dera), a temple where the founder of the current studied, was built around a statue of this bodhisattva. According to the Gosho, a collection of his writings, Nichiren saw Kokûzô one day appear before him and then change into an old monk who gave him a pearl of wisdom.
The Elephant God Ganesh (or Ganesha/Ganapati, also sometimes called siddhi data) is one of the most popular gods of Hinduism and is also widely represented in the Temples of Theravada Buddhism (India, Thailand, Indonesia...) and in those of Vajrayana (Tibet, Nepal...). It plays an important role in tantrism and is present in the Tibetan pantheon where it is recognized mainly as a deity of wealth but also is part of the attributes of certain wrathful deities, somewhat frightening, terrible, secret and fear, discarding obstacles.
The Japanese name of Ganesh is "Shoten" (聖) or Kangiten (歓喜), Japanese Buddhism considers it a manifestation of The Kannon Bosatsu (聖観音菩薩). In Japanese, the kanji is used as the equivalent of the Hindu Deva.
