Sakyamuni Buddha had instructed, “incense is Buddha’s messenger”; and as such, offering incense to communicate with Buddha, to pay tribute and make wishes, has long been a Buddhist tradition for more than 2500 years. To honor Sakyamuni Buddha and glorify the significance of incense, Yuan-Dao Guanyin Temple specially designs the world-distinctive blessing incense in total of 20 different sorts, each with its energy propensity, to help expediently fulfill the worshipper’s wishes.
All these incenses are enlightened by Master Lee, the 3rd Patriarch of Forshang Buddhism and the Abbot of the Temple, before handing to the worshippers. For your convenience, we group these 20 kinds of incense into two sets: “The Perfect Series” and “The Great Series.” In addition, every month, Master Lee will prepare “This Month’s Specials,” based on the overall energy dynamics of the concerning month, for the worshippers to choose from, including Booming Fortune Set, Health & Wellness Set, and Thriving Career Set.
