Details

Gangkar Sharu is a special type of flower that grows at the very top of the Himalayan mountains. An extremely rare incense ingredient, Gangkar Sharu is closely associated with Milarepa, the famous 11th century Buddhist master, as it only grows in his meditation place.

Incense is often used to purify what has been offered on the altar. Buddhists also offer incense to create the causes to have morality, ethics and hold one's vows well. Hence it is strongly encouraged to offer the best incense (and by extension, the best offerings) that one can afford. Our Gangkar Sharu is of the highest quality, and is directly sourced from monasteries in Nepal.

Directions for Use

  • Burn on hot coals or in a electric incense burner

It has healing and calming effect. Love it!Review by Jacinta
I bought this incense totally out of curiosity. In its description, it mentioned that this incense ingredient is made out of a special type of flower that only grow in Milarepa's meditation place. Milarepa is widely known as a great saint in Tibetan Buddhism and I am inspired by his story. Besides, I am a huge fan of incense. Hence, I've decided to try it out. I use it every morning when I am about to do my prayers. I will feel calmer than usual. The smell isn't that sweet but it's noticeable and pleasant. It feel like an instant healing to my busy mind. It's quite hard to describe but I just love it. Will order again soon.... (Reviewed on 7/16/2015)
The best incense ever!Review by Sarah
Previously, before discovering this incense, I like burning protector incense and also juniper loose incense. However, since trying out this product, I must say it has became my favorite. I like the smell from these dried leaves and also I must admit that I was attracted to it after reading the description of the product! lol! (Reviewed on 3/16/2015)
