Collection: Japanese Incense

top-cat-incense_blue1.jpg
 
Incense burning is an ancient practice, dating back to biblical times in the Middle East, where it is thought to have originated, and as far back as the 8th century in Japan. It is considered to be a sacred offering that holds the potential to both calm the mind and give us the opportunity to “communicate with the transcendent,” as the first of the “Ten Virtues of Koh (Incense),” states. In Zen, incense is used as an offering, as a way to focus our intention, and very practically, to time a period of meditation—short sticks last about 25 minutes; long sticks, about 45 minutes.
