Chandra Devi Lord Buddha Tibetan Incense

Chandra Devi Lord Buddha Tibetan Incense Made by hand from the purest ingredients in their facility at Katmandu, Nepal, all Chandra Devi incenses are products of an ancient art. More so than in other cultures, Tibetans employ incense as a spiritual aid and as part of healing rituals.One of the most potent forms of meditation in traditional Buddhism is using an image of Lord Buddha as a focal point, a method of concentrating the attention. By using the Buddha instead of a candle flame or other worldly object, the meditation is given a boost, so to speak, and will find spiritual bliss and happiness.

Lord Buddha incense is designed to be a part of this process, and to remind the user whenever it's used of the ineffability of spiritual experience. It literally cannot be put into words, because that would negate its effect on the soul.

Lord Buddha incense is a recipe composed of the finest red sandalwood, and a mixture of many herbs - some of which can only be harvested in the foothills of Mt. Everest. Under the nose, it has a very light scent of sandalwood and nothing else - a surprisingly subtle first impression from a strong-looking, heavy stick less stick. Burning, the fragrance is remarkably clean, astringent, dry, cedar-like, with very little hint of sweetness - but enough to make it a delight.

This incense exudes a serious spirituality, and has an exotic personality. It is reminiscent of an aromatic campfire, burning autumn leaves, or sage and herb smudges. It tends to focus one's attention on the sacred, and certainly merits its high status as a namesake for Lord Buddha.

Approx. 40 sticks per package.
