Tsurpu Monastery No. 1 ‘Brown’ Incense
Tsurpu Monastery Grade 1 ‘Brown’ Incense contains about 36 medicinal substances, including Tsurpu medicinal herbs, Ganden medicinal herbs, nectar pills, Tsurpu holy water, white sandalwood, purple sandalwood, and saffron crocus. This Grade 1 Incense is somewhat thinner than most Tibetan. The aroma is sophisticated — pure, soothing and refreshing, without being intrusive or ‘heavy’. The beautiful, hard-sided box is satin-covered inside and out and features a magnetic closure. The box is available in 2 colours — yellow or blue.
Tsurpu Monastery was founded in the twelfth century. It is a branch of the Kagyu 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.
