The Five Elements

Tibetan Medicine is based on the fundamental principle that the body is composed of the five elements of Earth, Fire, Water, Wind (Air), and Space. Each element has a particular function:

  • The Wind Element provides the ability to move and breathe and is essential for respiration, the skin, and the sense of feeling. It is also related to the Dhyani Buddha Amoghasiddhi.
  • The Earth Element provides the hard and stable quality involved in the development of the flesh, bone, nose, and the sense of smell. It is also related to the Dhyani Buddha Ratnasambhava.
  • The Water Element moisturises and lubricates body tissues involved in the development of blood, the tongue, the sense of taste, and the fluid portion in the body during conception. It is also related to the Dhyani Buddha Akshobhya.
  • The Fire Element controls and regulates body temperature, provides maturation of the body tissue and organs, generates heat throughout the body, provides colour of skin, complexion and eyes, and contributes to the growth and development of the body. It is also related to the Dhyani Buddha Amitabha.
  • The Space Element provides an empty space or place to allow things to grow, develop, mature, and is involved in movement, pores, the ears, and sound. It is also related to the Dhyani Buddha Vairocana.

When our five elements are in balance, we will have a healthy body, speech and mind. However, when any one of our elements goes out of balance - whether in excess, deficient or unstable, it affects the other elements and results in physical, mental and emotional ailments. Thus, the relationship and balance between the elements of our body is crucial for overall wellness and health.

About Incense and Incense Offering

Across all Buddhist traditions, incense is one of the most common and basic substances used as offerings to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. Within Tibetan Buddhism, incense is typically used as an offering to the Three Jewels — Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. It is also employed as part of Buddhist ritual to purify offering substances such as water, food and light.

In traditional Tibetan Medicine, incense is often used as a medicinal substance to treat certain ailments. Due to the healing qualities of its ingredients, Tibetan incense can soothe and calm a mind affected by depression, restlessness, anxiety and stress. Specific incense formulas can also be beneficial for common complaints such as migraines, cough, dizziness and insomnia.

On a spiritual level, the offering of incense reminds us to hold our vows purely and creates the causes for us to do so. In Buddhist thought, morality is considered to be one of the Six Perfections of a Bodhisattva practitioner. As such, it is one of the keys to reaching full enlightenment.

“Incense offerings should be done daily and consistently with great confidence in the supreme Dharma that liberates our mind from all sufferings and to the holy sage Buddha who has traversed over samsara.”
– Tsem Rinpoche

As we make incense offerings to the Buddhas, we generate the merits to become like them and hold our vows perfectly. This collection of merits is based on our Bodhisattva aspirations, and will lead us to the realisation of higher views which sees the faults of serving oneself as opposed to serving the needs of all sentient beings.

Therefore, offering incense of the best quality with the highest motivation may seem to be a simple spiritual act, but it leads to higher insight, integrity of practice, consistency of practice, generation of merits, and the ability to hold our vows which leads to the generation of higher attainments and insight within our mindstream.
