Dakpa Tamdin (Tibetan) Incense

Made according to a centuries-old formulation by Dakpa Tamdin in Kalimpong, in accordance with the instructions of H. H. Dudjom Rinpoche.Dakpa Tamdin has experienced the making of incense by many lamas in Tibet. As a young refugee, he started making incense with his knowledge and exprience from Tibet, he still does at present in his mid eighties. Soon after he fled from Tibet, he consulted His Holiness Dudjom Rimpoche, head of the Nyingma sect of Tibetan Buddhism about incense making. His Holiness not only gave him further information on incense making, but also gave him his "Jilab Phabta" (the initial ingredients blessed by His Holiness).Then His Holiness ordered Dakpa Tamdin to make incense for him to light in His room. The incense became very good and His Holiness was very pleased. As his followers started seeing His Holiness using this incense, Dakpa Tamdin's popularity grew.
