Dzogchen Monastery is one of the six great monasteries of the Nyingma tradition, the original Buddhist tradition in Tibet. It is also the main monastery for over 300 branch monasteries in the Kham, Amdo and Central regions of Tibet. Guru Rinpoche blessed the Dzogchen valley as a place of enlightened qualities. Dzogchen Pema Tung — or the “Lotus Ground” — is named after Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava), who is sometimes called the Lotus Born Master.

    Magical, amazing, wonderful, superb, uplifting…I simply do not have enough words to describe how great this incense is. I purchased two packs of this from another site before this one came along (it was more expensive on the other site as well) and I almost cried when I burned my first stick. This is one you can meditate in peace with. It isn’t heavy, overpowering, or pungent. It’s musky, relaxing, and probably my favorite Tibetan incense. Very, very worth the price. When this is in stock, I suggest stocking up! Everyone is learning how amazing this is and buying it out very quickly! If there were an incense Hall of Fame, this would be number 1. Do not hesitate when this one is in stock, buy it! Don’t buy a sample pack, buy a full pack! If you get samples only, you will be sorry and will be wishing you’d purchased the entire pack!

    This is an excellent incense, to be enjoyed during meditation as well as just by itself. Soft, sweetish, and well balanced. At first I could not believe this is Tibetan incense – it is so soft and doesn´t have any of the pungency Tibetan incense is known for. There´s probably a sweet agarwood in it, and it has some highly enchanting floral (and even slightly fruity) notes.
    It can trick your nose into believing you accidentally reached for the wrong box and lit a Japanese stick instead. It reminded me of some Baieido incenses…the scent resembles that of Kaden Kobunboku, or even slightly that of Ho-ryu.
    Definitely an incense you want to have in your collection – just like Mindroling Monastery Incense Grade 1 and 2, them having a scent profile similar to Japanese incense (although I´d say these latter two are more green-smelling than Lotus Ground).
    Get a full box, as recommended above – this one´s worth it.

    An unexpected aroma from a Tibetan incense. It is strongly reminiscent of some Shoyeido incense I have though is different. Light and fragrant, very pleasant.

    I had heard such good things. I’m relatively new to fine incense, enjoying Holy Land 2 more than the handful of others I’ve tried. This one is so bad to me, I can’t let it burn for more than 5 mins before jumping off my cushion to extinguish it. All I’m getting is “smoldering moldy/wet cardboard”. Now that I think of it, it’s strikingly similar to mold, which maybe a fault of the humid climate I’m in, but I tried it within a couple weeks of first receiving it. I’ve had it for a few months and revisited it many times, never changes.

    Answer to the review by J Deas:
    I believe that it is not the climate where you live. In fact it could be that during the drying process, due to higher moisture in the air, the binding agent (Laha, Dar or Makko) went bad and started to ferment. Since these binders are from vegetable sources and contain polysaccharides – which are, in their chemical structure, similar to starch and therefore a good matrix for bacteria growth – it could very well be that the drying didn´t go as fast as it should, the incense started fermenting. And now the overall scent has this moldy stench. I have once bought an incense to which the same had happened. The test would be to smell the unburnt stick. Does it smell mold-y? If yes then it went bad.

    Answer to the reviews by J Deas and Thomas Schwarze:
    I think my batch of this is also spoiled. Since I bought this early into my incense journey, I thought the problem was me until I read these other reviews! Something went wrong with this incense. I look forward to trying a fresh batch some day!
