Tibetan Monastery Incense

(As explained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama):
“Four major traditions — Nyingma, Kagyü, Sakya and Gelug — emerged as a result of the… dissemination of the Buddhist teachings in Tibet, and also because of the emphasis placed by great masters of the past on different scriptures, techniques of meditation and, in some cases, terms used to express particular experiences… What is common to all the four major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism is their emphasis on the practice of the entire structure of the Buddhist path….” (courtesy rigpawiki.org & wikipedia)

THE NYINGMA TRADITION: (founded by Padmasambhava, also known as ‘Guru Rimpoche’) is the oldest tradition. The word ‘nyingma’ literally means ‘ancient’ — since it was founded on the first translations of Buddhist scripture from Sanskrit into Old Tibetan in the 8th c. The fine incense we carry from the Nyingma Tradition includes:
