Handpicked from the seasons of different regions, we source only herbs and spices of the utmost quality and potency to be used consistently in our production of top-grade aromatic incense.
Through years of research and teachings from many humble backgrounds, our Kodo Master – Master Lim Say Fon, reacquired lost wisdoms of this art and its secret, sacred scriptures from his frequent travels to Japan and China. And finally, the hidden gem of the east is now rested with us – The Shambhala. Today, we are recognized for our main linages from Ancient China and Ancient Japan. The former had been handed down by many dynasties and through many generations of Kōdō Masters and Grand Physicians while the latter focuses on traditional formulation and production methods of incense, and is now recognized by Great Kōdō Master – Master Hidetsugu Tanaka.
