What Incense Sticks Are You Burning Lately?
« on: December 20, 2019, 09:35:51 pm »
I'm currently burning some Goloka nag champa.

It's a pretty classical nag champa incense from India.

What are you burning lately?

nag champas are bit heavy/oily for my nose.  I like Shoyeido White Cloud, myself.

Shoyeido White Cloud is an excellent Japanese incense for the price.
I have some of it as well and burn it from time to time.

Right now I am burning some Minorien Fu-in aloeswood incense sticks.

Post covid-19 I find that any smoke sets off hours of coughing, so I have taken to using incense sticks without lighting them. The quality ones give off a suitable aroma for meditating without triggering the cough response.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

I alway prefered Tibetan incense sticks - but I have mild asthma and so its best not to burn any at all because it just makes me cough eventually.

May they abide in great impartiality, free from attachment to loved ones and aversion to others.

I have avoided incense use indoors since learning that it was originally used to repell insects.

No telling the upper respiratory effects, so why take a chance?

A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.

A lot of centers are going the same way - no burning of incense - and for the same reasons.

My favorite flavors of incense are frankincense, sandalwood, roses, lavender, Michelia Champaka and jasmine.
