Dzogchen Monastery Incense
Dzogchen Monastery in Nepal

Dzogchen Monastery is one of the six great monasteries of the Nyingma tradition, the original Buddhist tradition in Tibet. It is also the main monastery for over three hundred branch monasteries in the Kham, Amdo and Central regions of Tibet. Since the early eighties the monastery has been undergoing reconstruction and it is currently home to around two hundred and fifty monks. Numerous teachings, empowerment and prayer festivals are held throughout the year, as well as the annual lama dance of King Gesar.

Dzogchen Monastery was founded during the seventeenth century in Derge, Kham, Eastern Tibet, and has been the home of many great masters, such as the Dzogchen Patrul Rinpoche. The institution of Dzogchen has kept alive the unbroken lineage of Padmasambhava for centuries through intensive instruction in study and meditation practice.

Dzogchen, even though it has hundreds of years of history, has just started making incense in 2009. We are pleased to be the first importers of this fabulous incense. Your purchase of this incense helps provide a source of income for the Monastery and the Monk's schooling and teaching.

This incense is imported directly by Essence of the Ages™ from Dzogchen Monastery in Tibet.

"Lotus Ground Incense is one of the finest offerings to be imported from China in the modern age, a truly spectacular, refined incense of an uncommonly high class. Sold in single or double rolls, this is a world class incense, not only among the best Tibetan China has to offer, but quite arguably the most sophisticated and Japanese-worthy scent to be offered. Not only is the stick slightly thinner than most Tibetan sticks, but it's also redolent of extracts and perfumes directly on the stick.

When I first opened the box I knew this one would be special as it gives off a strong, spicy aroma like a combination of cinnamon, saffron and musk. And strangely enough, cinnamon isn't even listed in its primary group of 17 ingredients, which also include red and white sandalwood, titepati, ganden grass, jattamasi, sunpati, aggur, kushum flower, surchandan and saldhoop. I would expect some of these ingredients show up as extracts as this is as redolent a Tibetan incense off the stick as you'll find.

Aromatically this is also fairly unusual in that the smoke content is a bit lower than it normally is for a Chinese Tibetan incense and the remaining ash tends to a brick red color, which is fairly unusual for any incense. The scent is both mellow and striking in its intensity, a rare balance, that puts the saffron, cinnamon and musk up front as the base aroma, but also implies a much greater complexity than these three afford in their own right. There is definitely an unusual floral element at work that winds its way through the burn almost like it's playing hide and seek, in fact the nature of this incense is almost like a sine curve in the way that it'll play subtly in the background and then whip out to stun you with its pristine and regal bouquet. Like most excellent monastery incense it has loads of juju or spiritual potency at work and it seems difficult to not call this incense a product of the fire element, like kundalini at its very base, indeed its playfulness is very much like watching the flickering of a flame.

Overall it's difficult not to see this one close to the apex of incense art, along with Tibetan Medical College, Samye Monastery, Medicine King and Highland incenses, but even with that said there's even a greater refinement on this one, as it's not quite as wild and untamed as the rest of these. Ultimately it's a brilliant, classic incense that gets the highest marks I can give it. This is a really prescient find via Essence of the Ages... "
