    In Buddhism, incense is used to puja offering and purification. Lord Buddha use incense as a parable to uphold vinaya to create pure scent and pure smell. An example is the story of Magadha Sangmo, the daughter of one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s lay disciple and a primary patron. Offering incense reminds us to constantly uphold our vows and commitments purely. The offering of incense also signify the restoration of our broken vows and commitments. Thank you for this video.

    Sangsol actually means the incense with propitiation. It is nprmally burned at pujas and as offerings. Offering of incense as such is akin to upholding of vows and commitments. The pure scent is indicative of upholding morality.

    The prayer is especially meaningful as it offers the incense to the Three Jewels, Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, gods, dewas and local guardians of the area.

    Ever since my husband and I were introduced to sang offering, we make this offering everyday except when we are travelling. We especially love to offer the Tibetan incense with herbs.
