All Vectis Karma Relaxation Products
The Best Relaxation Products - Japanese Incense Sticks
We explain elsewhere on our site about the
variety of uses and types of incense - whether practical, aesthetic, religious or for simple pleasure and relaxation - no matter its use, we feel Japanese Incense are the best; and like most things in life, you get what you pay for!
We are proud to represent and promote Japanese Incense sticks
from the leading incense companies in Japan - both traditional and modern. They
all demonstrate a commitment to the use of all natural ingredients and zero
animal products and animal testing in their preparation. Three of these
companies in particular are considered the 'big three' incense companies in
Japan; and all 3 have been in existence for over 300 years:
Kousaido are relatively much younger; having been
established in 1994, yet have earned a
significantly positive reputation for their fresh takes on many
classic ideas for incense. Subtle, floral delicacy are the key words that come
to mind my for this brand, as well as great package design.
The Exceptional Relaxation Properties of Tibetan Incense
Respecting ancient texts and traditional recipes, the Tibetan incense sticks Vectis Karma offers you are manufactured in Nepal. It is indeed the woman Dr Dolkar, a descendant of the very famous Tibatan doctors of the Lhassa school, who manufactures them in order to finance her mission: enabling people to benefit from cheap consultations.
|Incense Holders, Incense Burners And Bowls|
We are always looking out for items that accompany and add value and pleasure to our
customers use of incense. Holders, bowls and the like are essential items and vary widely in materials, style, size etc., so we have at least 5 categories of these items: metal holders, ceramic burners, stone incense burners, wood bowls and resin incense holders. Some items require a 'special' holder; i.e. Tibetan incense which is very much thicker than Japanese incense.
Buddha Greeting Cards
Unlike other religions, Buddhism does not prescribe or associate particular dates or festivals with the sending of special cards - so here we are presenting greetings cards that are celebrations of peaceful images, using Buddha art and Buddha images as the focus of attention. Peace, beauty and calm; rather than a specific event. Hence, all our cards are left blank inside, so that the giver or writer may determine their own expression and purpose. This could be congratulatory in nature, or perhaps in sympathy, hope, support, comfort, love or any other feeling you wish to express to another. There are 20 different cards available in our current Buddha or Asian set, 3 examples of which appear below.
Sharing the love, getting in touch, being positive, reaching out to loved ones, being there for others ... however you describe it, whatever you're particular purpose or intention - it's good Karma to send to someone a positive, friendly, supportive and loving message!
Buddha images on cards represent a peaceful image; somehow their power, tranquility and authority are magnified many times over when presented in a solid, three-dimensional format. Vectis Karma offer a variety of Buddha statues and Buddha art pieces, ranging from modern to antique, small and large. From a pure accessibility and affordability perspective we feature a number of Japanese Zen Buddhist items - hugely popular in Japan and very common good luck tokens. Contrast these with the 15th Century CE pieces we sometimes source from the Angkor Wat region of Cambodia.
