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.
Mantra turning back, om mani padme hum
According to Tibetan Buddhism, reciting Chenrezi Om Mani Padme Hum's mantra, aloud or inwardly, is an invocation to Chenrezig's benevolent and powerful attention, the expression of the Buddha's compassion. Seeing the written mantra can have the same effect, which is why it is found in clearly visible places, or even engraved in stone. It can also be invoked using prayer wheels on which the mantra is inscribed, sometimes thousands of times. There are different formats of prayer wheels: there are those that you can carry with you and rotate with one hand, and there are others that are so large and heavy that it takes several people to turn them. According to Tibetan Buddhist monks, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum (Hung) alone brings together all the teachings of the Buddha.

White Tārā, Tibetan, Dolma Karpo, Sītā Tārā, the White Liberator but also, luminous, clear, is one of the forms of the 21 known Tārā. She is a deity of Tibetan Buddhism. It symbolizes the activity of pacification, and more particularly grants longevity and health. His mantra is often recited with someone in mind. It also expresses compassion, and it is represented with seven eyes to signify the vigilance and omniscience of the spirit inhabited by this compassion (karuna).
The Sanskrit root târ- means "to cross" or "to cross" as by using a bridge to cross a stream. In the Indian Orthodox sacred tradition, Târâ refers to the second of the ten means of realization. And as Shri Tara Devi, she is the deification of this Mahavidya, according to Hindu Tantra. As A Târîni, she carries you through. In other words, it serves as a bridge for you to reach immortality. But the tar- root can mean "tree" and "especially," and it's also related to "star" and "pupil of the eye."
In Tibetan, it is called Dolma or Do'ma , although often we see Drolma because it follows the Tibetan spelling (a little more; if we transliterate, it is actually sgrolma.)
Tara in its white form is distinguished by its White body, like an autumn moon; clear as a stainless crystal jewel, radiating light. She has one face, two hands, three eyes. She is described in textbooks as having the youth of 16 years. Her right hand makes the gesture of giving gifts, and with the thumb and ring finger of her left hand, she holds a branch of white utpala, her petals at the level of her ear.
There are three flowers at various stages of growth symbolizing the three times (past, present and future). The first flowering that is seeded, usually on the right, represents Buddha Kashyapa who lived in a past eon; the second in first bloom represents the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, whose activity brought you here today, and the bud on the left symbolizes the future Buddhas - the expected one is the Maitreya Buddha.
Her hair is dark blue, bound to the back of her neck in the back with long hanging braids; her breasts are full; she is adorned with various precious ornaments, her blouse is of silk of different colors, and her robes are of red silk, the palms of her hand and the soles of her feet each have an eye, constituting the seven eyes of knowledge; she sits upright and firm on the circle of the moon, legs crossed in the diamond posture.
White Tara is called "Mother of All Buddhas".
