Samye Monastery Incense
- CAD: $42.09
Samye Monastery incense is made from a secret recipe of Padmasambhava (Guru Rimpoche) and ingredients include more than 30 different kinds of precious Tibetan medical herbs and spices. An ideal offering to the Triple Jewels and all guardian deities. The Monastery notes that it clears negative elements, purifies the air and benefits the mind and is perfect for meditation practice. The fragrance is deeper and somehow more profound than the previous batch and the spice and clove tones are more subdued.
Samye Monastery is the first Buddhist monastery built in Tibet. The Indian monk Śāntarakṣita made the first attempt to construct the Monastery in this auspicious site, but the building always collapsed after reaching a certain stage. Terrified, the construction workers believed the damage was caused by a demon in a nearby river. When Padmasambhava arrived from northern India, he subdued the demon and building on the holy site began. Today, it is an active Monastery and important pilgrimage and tourist destination.
