About our Incense
Incense is known to have a calming effect on the mind. It is customary to offer incense before a period of meditation. Offering incense expresses our intention to let go of our individual, conceptual self and open to our awakened nature.
Incense is one of the eight traditional offerings — water for drinking, water for bathing, flowers, incense, light, perfume, food and music. When incense is lit, its beautiful fragrance expands and increases throughout space symbolizing the way morality, ethics, and discipline become the basic causes and conditions from which the qualities of wisdom and compassion grow.
