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.
Jambhala (also known as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Zambala or Jambala) is the God of wealth and appropriately a member of the jewel family (Ratna) whose Dhyani Buddha is Ratnasambhava. In Hindu mythology, it is known as Kubera.Jambhala is also considered an emanation of the Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of Compassion.
He is the protector of all lineages and all sentious beings from any disease and difficulties. Jambhala is a Bodhisattva of material and spiritual wealth as well as many other things, including the granting of financial stability.
"Because in this world there are all kinds of angry and negative emotions or evil spirits, and sometimes they harm you and other sentient beings, Dzambhala must assume such an angry and powerful form to protect us from these harmful spirits and negative karma. In particular, Dzambhala helps us to minimize or decrease all misfortunes and obstacles and helps us to increase all good fortune and happiness. »
This statuette is the yellow version of the deity (green, white, red and black) also known as the Guardian of the North Vaiśravaṇa वैश्रवण (Sansk.)
( pali. Vessavaṇa वेस्सवण) (Chin.多聞天王, duō wén tiānwáng) (Cor. 다문천왕, Damun Cheonwang) (Jap. 多聞天 or 毘沙門 Tamon-ten or Bishamon-ten) (tib. rnam.thos.sras(Namthöse)) (mong. Bisman tengri). Taoist name Molishou.
The guardian of the north is also the leader of the Chaturmaharaja (or Celeste kings) "the one who is learned", "the one who hears everything". In China it is considered a Buddhistization of the Bhramanic deity of Kuvera riches, the north being considered to hold fabulous treasures. He presides over the winter and is black in color, nicknamed the black warrior. He commands an army of Yakshas.
In India their symbols are the flag, the jewel and the mongoose.
In Japan his cult appears independently of the other guardian kings from the ninth century, he was considered the healing god who would have saved Emperor Daigo (898-930), he became god of wealth in the Heian period, then protector of the samurai in the Kamakura period.
Like Milofo, he is one of the seven gods of bohneur since the seventeenth century. He is the protector of the nation in both China and Japan.
