This red sandalwood, from India, much rarer than white sandalwood has no characteristic smell and is part of the very precious woods.
In Buddhism, sandalwood is one of the Padma (lotus) and corresponds to the Amitabha Buddha, plus the element of this Buddha is fire and its color, red. Sandalwood is considered capable of transforming desires and retaining the attention of a person practicing meditation.
Sandalwood is one of the main constituents of incense made in China, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, and is intended to be lit in temples or during worship. It is also widely used in India for these same applications.

In Buddhism, the Dragon is the vehicle of Vairocana, the white Buddha sitting in the east (or center). Its dragon-backed throne probably derives from the Chinese imperial throne. The Turquoise Dragon is the mount of a large number of protective deities, treasure keepers and rain and storm gods. As guardians of treasures, the Sino-Tibetan Dragons are the counterparts of the Indian nagas. The Tibetan term druk (tib.brug) means both "dragon" and "thunder." Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom, is called Druk Yul (Land of the Dragon). Its inhabitants, the drukpas, take their name from the spiritual lineage Drukpa kagyu, native to Tibet. This lineage was established by the wise Tsangpa Gyaré who, having once observed nine dragons disappear in the sky near Gyantsé, decided to establish the monastery of Ralung. In Tibetan Buddhism, the rise to heaven of a group of Dragons is an auspicious sign.

In Taoism, dragons were as benevolent and brought happiness and prosperity. It was only with Buddhism that their nature took on a more menacing aspect. The dragon was the symbol of the Emperor of China for two millennia it was customary to call the Emperor of China, "Dragon". According to legend, the dragon had nine sons with a well-cut personality and a very precise place in the iconography.
