origin of wood, China origin of this tree.

In Asia, especially in Japan, the camphor tree is revered: it is the emblem of the city of Hiroshima because it was the first to green after the atomic bombing of August 6, 1945. And in China, it embodies the tree of life, because of the berries that would allow to reach immortality when consumed.

The camphor tree or camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora) is a species of tree of the laurel family (Lauraceae) from which camphor is extracted by distillation of its wood, called "Ho wood" recognizable for its characteristic smell that would have stimulating virtues, like tiger balm having camphor in its composition.

Analgesic, anti-inflammatory and stimulating, camphor essential oil can be used externally to relieve pain. It is particularly appreciated by athletes and people suffering from rheumatism to calm muscle and rheumatic pain.

Its area of origin is in China, Taiwan and Japan. It has naturalized in other continents and sometimes behaves like an invasive species.

The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop repeats the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself. The cord on which the beads are strung must, theoretically, be a braid of several threads:
three sons symbolize the "three Bodies" of a Buddha (Absolute Body, Body of Glory and Body of Emanation);
five sons symbolize the "five wisdoms" or "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine sons symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.
