Kobunboku is an expression of the Plum Tree which is well known as "The Flower of Peace" from ancient China. This is one of the most popular types of incense in Japan!

The Tien Tai master Chih-i's (sixth century) writings are primary resource books for both Zen and Pure Land meditation practice. In his "Mo-ho Chih-kuan" or "Great Stopping and Seeing", sandalwood is mentioned many times. The Buddha Sakyamuni's staff and other items were all carved from sandalwood.
