nardo de mi casa / spikenard from home


(Nardostachys grandiflora o Nardostachys jatamansi) es una planta angiosperma de la familia de la Valeriana que crece en el Himalaya de China, así como en la región norte de la India y Nepal.
El perfume de nardo ha sido muy apreciado y cotizado desde la antigüedad. En la Biblia se relata que cuando Jesús de Nazaret asistió a una cena en la casa de María de Betania, ésta demostró su devoción por el tomando una libra de perfume de nardo genuino de un frasco de alabastro y le ungió los pies con el mismo



Spikenard (Nardostachys grandiflora or Nardostachys jatamansi; also called nard, nardin, and muskroot ) is a flowering plant of the Valerian family that grows in the Himalayas of China, also found growing in the northern region of India and Nepal.
In the New Testament John 12:1–10, six days before the passover Jesus arrives in Bethany. In Bethany, Mary, sister of Lazarus uses a pound of pure nard to anoint Jesus's feet.
