Description

Tsurpu Monastery was founded in the twelfth century. It is a branch of the Kagyupa tradition and considered the most important Kagyu monastery and seat of the Karmapa lineage. Their members are known as the Black Hats after the Second Karmapa was presented with one by Kublai Khan. The Karmapa were the first order to institute the system of reincarnated lamas — a tradition later adopted by the Gelugpa school.

Tsurpu Monastery Grade 1 ‘Brown’ Incense is produced in accordance with the ancient Kagyu tradition and has been used as a holy offering throughout history. With attention to tradition, the use of pure, high quality ingredients, the incense adds no artificial chemicals or pigments. The incense has been used to make offerings to the three jewels, to reduce negative influence and to increase the four kinds of excellent deeds.

It is said that Tsurpu Monastery Incense is the only Tibetan incense available in the ‘Forbidden City’ in Beijing.

    My first thought on hitting this was that it was similar to the other Tibetans I’m reviewing, but then my second thought immediately went to how balanced this one is and I started wishing maybe a cologne or similar perfume might smell like this one. I find the balance of that ‘animal’ musk that I’ve been getting in other Tibetans is sort of perfectly played against the woods and herbs present here to give it a sort of divine cologne scent. I’d imagine that Buddha might smell something like this after a long meditation. The cologne of spirituality achieved through ultimate meditation. I also note that the ‘ingredients’ listed out on the page here include “purple sandalwood” and I’m intrigued and wonder what that might be. High altitude sandalwood? A different varietal? This is probably the most expensive set of sticks I’ve encountered, until I realized that at $80 for 100 sticks, it’s actually 80 cents a stick which is much less than some of these that are closer to a dollar or more a stick(like Tashilhunpo grade A).
