Their Story: Much More than a Business...
The history of Prabhuji’s Gifts is so unique that those who purchase their fragrant and meditative products enjoy learning about the people who manufacture them. No ordinary business, Prabhuji’s Gifts was founded by H. H. Avadhuta Sri Bhaktivedanta Ramakrishnananda Babaji Maharaja, or “Prabhuji,” as he is called out of love and respect.
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 learned 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 aroma of attraction, the aura of health, 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, or 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. Over the years and with God’s grace, this turned out to be the first step toward Prabhuji’s Gifts that became an integral part of his life and soul and a manifestation of a loving bridge between his 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 the spiritual benefits of incense, smudging herbs, and attar oil with others. 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. Prabhuji’s Gifts now sells 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 they offer first passes Prabhuji’s personal test, ensuring it is beneficial for meditation and spiritual elevation.
Prabhuji’s Gifts is passionate about socially-conscious and environmental-friendly practices. It operates at the highest standards as a gold-level Green America Certified business, gives generously to humanitarian projects, supports the employment of uneducated women in rural villages in India and the traditional Native American and South American cultures. When you shop at Prabhuji’s Gifts, you not only get empowering products and hours of aromatic pleasure, but you also help a community of yogis to spread the magical power of fragrance along with the beauty of spiritual wisdom while giving back to society and the environment.

In their U.S. warehouse, production facility and office, they use energy-efficient appliances and maintain the policy to save as much energy as possible. Their environmentally conscious staff constantly endeavors to find ways to recycle packing materials and reduce energy consumption.
Prabhuji also founded the Bhaktivedanta Mission, a non-profit organization that serves as a home for a community of spiritual seekers in New York, runs international food and toy distribution programs, and operates yoga centers, Hindu temples, and Eastern philosophy institutes. The mission also built the Bhaktivedanta Ashram in New York State’s tranquil Catskill Mountains, where spiritual retreats are offered to visitors.
Prabhuji’s Gifts donates much of its profits to the Bhaktivedanta Mission, which provides selfless service to others, a spiritual practice known as karma yoga. This includes: opening its temple doors to the community, offering online access to a wide variety of literature, video and audio lectures filled with spiritual wisdom, providing retreat grants as well as running humanitarian projects, such as: Prabhuji Food Distribution Program for people in need in New York State and the Dominican Republic, Prabhuji Food Rescue USA and Ramakrishnananda Toy Christmas Gifts for low income families.
