Samye Monastery Incense is a product of the first Buddhist monastery built in Tibet. According to tradition, the Indian monk Śāntarakṣita made the first attempt to construct the Monastery. Finding the site auspicious, he set about to build a structure. However, the building always collapsed after reaching a certain stage. Terrified, the construction workers believed that there was a demon in a nearby river. When Padmasambhava arrived from northern India, he subdued the demon and building began. Today, it is an active Monastery and important pilgrimage and tourist destination.
