Nalendra Monastery Incense is somewhat smoky when first lit. It then settles down and offers a pleasant mild-to-medium fragrance, with woody overtones and a slight muskiness. According to the description, there are more than twenty precious herbs including white sandalwood, purple sandalwood, saffron, Jiang Xiang (Lignum Dalbergiae Odoriferae) and agarwood. It is ideal for use as an offering to the Three Jewels. Nalendra Monastery was founded in 1435 by Rongton Sheja Kunrig (1367-1449), a remarkable man who became one of the ‘Six Jewels of Tibet’. He was considered an emanation of Lord Maitreya. Nalendra Monastery is located north-east of Lhasa — the name is taken from the Nalanda Monastery in India. Nalendra Monastery follows the Sakya tradition.
