This set includes 4 boxes of incense by Dakpa Tamdin. Dakpa Tamdin is one of the first makers of Tibetan Incense outside of Tibet – beginning in 1969. Coming from a lineage of incense makers, Dakpa Tamdin was personally instructed by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche on how to make incense, and therefore this incense is imbued with Dudjom Rinpoche’s blessings.

This incense is handmade using natural herbs and spices from the Himalaya region. No artificial fragrances are used.

Each box includes 25-30 incense sticks that are approximately 9.5” long.

Ven. Dakpa Tamdin as a young monk in Sakya, Tibet, learnt the art of incense making from many revered lamas in his monastery. After the Chinese occupation, he fled Tibet and started producing incense in Kalimpong, India, under the instruction and guidance of His Holiness the 2nd Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987), the supreme head of the Nyingma sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Ven. Dakpa Tamdin, being one of Rinpoche’s favourite disciples, was given the Thamdze nyewa kuensel- a pill to mix with the initial ingredients. This is passed down until today to every batch of incense we make by the process of Jinlab Phabta so as not to break the chain.

With Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche’s approval and usage of Dakpa Tamdin incense for his personal daily practice, demand increased and Dakpa Tamdin incense flourished. Dakpa Tamdin incense was used in most households and in major Buddhist centres in Asia, Europe and America.

Today the handicraft and business of Dakpa Tamdin is passed down to his grandchildren who handmake each batch.
