The tropical tree aquilaria belongs to the Thymelaeceae family, which includes about forty species distributed mainly in Southeast Asia. It has a slender appearance, a clear bark and leaves of an intense bright green; it can easily exceed five meters in height.
Aquilaria is the origin of agar wood, as well as sought-after species and other rare and precious products. A characteristic that he shares with a nearby genus, The Gyrinops, with nine species also distributed 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 valuable woods in the world
Agar wood 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 fragrance is woody, powerful, musky - and medicinal.
It is used as incense in certain religious rituals, notably in Korea or Hinduism. It also served as a medium to preserve certain texts: this is the case of pormuniyan, a Javanese medical-magic collection, kept in the National Library of France. It is also used as essential oil, extracted from wood after a complex maceration and distillation process.
Mantra turning back, om mani padme hum
According to Tibetan Buddhism, reciting the mantra of Chenrezi Om Mani Padme Hum, 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, even engraved in stone. It can also be invoked with prayer mills on which the mantra is inscribed, sometimes thousands of times. There are different formats of prayer mills: there are those that can be carried with you and run with one hand, and there are others that are so large and heavy that it takes several people to run them. According to Tibetan Buddhist monks, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum (Hung) alone brings together all the Buddha's teachings.
