Prabhuji’s Gifts was inspired by the spiritual journey of Prabhuji, a writer and a mystic, who lives as a hermit.
As a child, Prabhuji loved to quietly watch his shamanic grandmother, to whom he had a deep connection, as she recited prayers, offered incense, and burned herbs. Though he did not understand why she was mixing oils with resins, boiling petals, and lighting candles, the aromatic mixture of the fragrances penetrated his heart. Upon questioning, he learnt that her unusual occupation was to help people with their various needs such as peace, love, friendship, health, and wealth.
Throughout the years, Prabhuji passionately explored the power that fragrances have to materialize intentions, inspire emotions, and improve one’s well-being: the scent of love, the aura of health, the aroma of attraction, the smell of wealth, and more. Later on, when visiting Hindu temples, Prabhuji encountered the captivating aromas of Eastern incense used in devotional rituals. These unique fragrances were more than simply pleasing to the senses, they created the proper environment for heart-lifting and spiritual experiences. Captivated by the yogic path of devotion, bhakti yoga, he felt the deep divine impact that the magical scent of incense made in his soul. He then decided: One day, I will spread “the smell of God” all around the world.
Out of a sincere desire in his heart to share, Prabhuji sold incense in his first yoga studio at the same price he himself had bought it, having no business. This act inspired the establishment of Prabhuji’s Gifts that is a manifestation of a loving bridge between Prabhuji’s shamanic roots and Eastern wisdom.
On September 2001, a manufacturer and wholesale supply company was incorporated in the United States. Over time, it grew in size, customers, and product variety, while holding onto the same spirit of dedication and service. Today, mystical aromas fill the New York factory with spiritual vibrations. The company is run by yogis who are passionate to share with others the spiritual benefits of incense, smudging herbs, and attar oils. They infuse sacred mantras into colorful blends of natural resins, herbs, and oils that have been selected to calm the mind, purify the heart, and elevate the soul. We now sell more than 70 different scents of incense sticks and resins, as well as hand-harvested sage, Vegan Certified perfume attar oils, meditation shawls made from renewable fiber and hand-printed by artisans in India, prayer beads and many other spiritual gift items. New products are continuously being developed and created.
Every blend of incense that we offer first passed Prabhuji’s personal test, ensuring it is beneficial for meditation and spiritual elevation.
