The tropical tree aquilaria belongs to the Family Thymelaeceae, which includes about forty species distributed mainly in Southeast Asia. It has a slender appearance, clear bark and intense glossy green leaves; it can easily exceed five meters in height.
Aquilaria is the origin of agarwood, as well as sought-after species and other rare and precious products. A characteristic that it shares with a close genus, the Gyrinops, endowed with nine species distributed equally 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 precious woods in the world
Agarwood 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 scent is woody, powerful, musky – and medicinal.
It is used as incense in some religious rituals, especially in Korea or Hinduism. It has also served as a support for preserving certain texts: this is the case of the Pormuniyan, a Javanese medico-magical collection, kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. It is also used in the form of essential oil, extracted from wood after a complex maceration and distillation process.
Amitabha Buddha is the protector of people born under the sign of the dog and the pig.
Amitābha, Amitāyus or Amida1 is a Buddha of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. He reigns in the "Pure Western Land of Beatitude" (sk.: Sukhāvatī, ch.: Xīfāng jílè shìjiè, ja.: saihō goraku sekai 西方極樂世界), a wonderful, pure, perfect world, devoid of evil, suffering. This pure land, a place of refuge outside the cycle of transmigrations – or the equivalent of nirvāņa according to some conceptions – is at the center of the beliefs and practices of the pure land schools. This Buddha, also called the Buddha of buddhas, is very popular among Mahāyānists, especially in the Chinese world, Korea, Japan, Tibet and Vietnam.
