At KINKARACO, we practice Buddhist Economics. We exist for your benefit to serve you with right livlihood to live. This means :
We take too long helping elderly people finding what they need and sending them things in the mail because they have no internet.
We give free shipping too often when we determine the need .
We spend too much money paying locals to make our high quality products in the United States of America.
We buy fabrics that are of superior quality for their integrity ,natural fiber content and biodegradability .
We cherish ALL of our customers including families who have just lost someone they love, people planning ahead, wealthy funeral home and cemetery owners, and home funeral guides in small towns just beginning their businesses. We practice equanimity and see them one and all as very valuble .
In other words our bottomline at KINKARACO is not profit as it is within much of this industry but our decisions keep PEOPLE as the priority while remaining solvent and functioning. We try very hard to always practice Giving, Patience, Effort, Concentration , Moral Discipline and Wisdom.
