Indonesian term or phrase: triloka
Triloka is my favorite incense and would like to know what the term translates to in English.

Three Worlds
Explanation:
According to one old tome triloka is Kawi or Old Javanese of Sanskrit derivation for "tiga alam", three worlds. But who knows? Check with the Hindi GuruZ.com, they may have more on it. Maybe it's got something to do with Siva, Visnu and Braham - God knows!
